About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day Fortyfour: Seeing Pictures

This is a photo of me taken last Summer by a friend while I was visiting them at their cottage on Pillar Point, Lake Ontario. It was sunset and you can see how the color of the light played upon my complexion, shirt, and hair color. Notice the glass of wine in front of me? Well, the photo below shows what that glass of wine looked like from where I was sitting. As I snapped the photo my friends didn't think much of it, in fact, looked at me sort of oddly. Then I showed them the photo. They were impressed. I just sit around wherever I am and view the world around me as if I am looking through a camera. I am mentally framing the scene and the various elements of the scene in front me, imaginging how it will look photographed. The bottom photo is a view of the porch after the Sun had set.
