Worth a thousand words


That is the old saying, right? A picture is worth a thousand words. And I’ve been using too many words and not enough new pictures so it’s time to start changing that equation. And while I didn’t get anything close to that thousand-word shot today I did get out with the Nikon and did a few minutes between the emissions test for the old Chevy and a trip to the hardware for supplies.

And the more I shoot maybe one day I’ll find that picture worth a thousand words and more.

Well, it’s a start and there are even a few hours left in today and tomorrow is another day and opportunity to raise that viewfinder to my eye. Maybe it’s the warm weather or just feeling a little better but it felt good to get outside again today and walk a bit. I think I’ll walk down another stretch of the Patapsco River near my home tomorrow by Woodstock Road.

I’m more of a summer person but in the winter months before foliage appears you get the size of trees and the depth and density of woods much clearer.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • If you’re not being paid, that is when sports are being played.
  • I feel the need to make each day more special in some way.
  • Guns are a plague of our own making. Shoot with a camera.
  • The goal, more time and effort into my priorities tomorrow.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
