Today’s picture shows dog footprints on the top of a low stone wall and chain fence along the south edge of the King George Terrace lookout.
The Cat requires that I remind the world that no self-respecting animal would walk over wet concrete. I think I also heard her say something like “dumb, dumber and dogs!”
It has been exactly 2 months since I drew my First Breath and blew on the burnt embers of my creativity by starting a photo blog. Creativity long stifled by work in a windowless cubicle and life seemingly too busy to slow down enough to fully appreciate my surroundings and a lot of other obstacles or excuses.
“It is not when he is working in the office but when he is lying idly on the sand that his soul utters, “Life is beautiful”“
” if he has got “a special talent in his breast and a special vision below his eyebrows,” he can get the greatest joy of travel even without going to the mountains, by staying at home and watching and going about the field to watch a sailing cloud, or a dog, or a hedge, or a lonely tree “
These two months have passed quickly. I have traveled widely, even if only in my neighbourhood, by watching a few sailing clouds, cats, trees, water drops, fences and lonely derelicts of one kind and another. I have made a few photos I am pleased with, and some that other people seem to like (not necessarily the same ones, which I find interesting and a bit alarming). I and the blog are thriving with more than 60 posts, 4,400 views and 45 subscribers, already (!).
I still have a ton to learn about my camera, even more to know about taking pictures and looking at my surroundings, and am a neophyte when it comes to post-production. But, it feels like I have made a good start and I thank all of you for viewing and your kind comments and overall for your encouragement and willlingness to help and share knowledge. This photography blogging community is terrific, I am glad to be here.
