Going Green

1 Comment

This guy is way ahead of us in going green. I almost didn’t take this shot because he was walking up the back doorframe that I’d sanded a few months back, but not painted yet. But the reason I posted this is because it pointed to the simplicity and opportunity that my cell phone provides that my cameras didn’t.

I’ve always carried my cameras with me no matter where I went, long before cell phones and to this day. But I don’t walk around the house or everywhere with them all the time. But I seem to have my cell phone with me a majority of the time now and have that camera for quick captures like when you open a door and see this guy at eye level.

I never made much use of the camera on my old iPhone. I have a newer one now and I’m reading up on it and giving myself an education. And I’m finding it quite useful. The more I know the less of a novice I am. But then again, I have no issues with being called a novice or an amateur in my field now or when I’m retired.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • At one time in my life, I used to think the late 60s and 70s were a time of great uncertainty. Well, I think we may have topped that.
  • I miss having a cat fall asleep on me.
  • Seems like you develop more patience as you get older when it should be the other way around.
  • I see a pizza in the near future.
  • Most days it’s difficult to find two weather forecasts that even agree on the next 24 hours.

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.

  1. Your random thoughts were especially good today! Thanks.
    I’ve been meaning to ask someone if they know what’s happened to Paul Able? Or is it Abel?
