Thank you Dave! I try to never take these sights for granted. So far, so good (15 years) :D

I think it's very important not to take things for granted, and very hard not to. I am so glad my wife got me back into photography. I am even gladder about digital since there is now no good reason not to Take The Pitcher. Take a dozen! See it? Shoot it! It costs essentially nothing and if nothing else may serve as a warm memory later. When my wife and I met I started doing photo albums almost obsessively for 8 years. I still have them but I need to scan everything in them (a daunting daunter) but at least most of them are dated and captioned. We bought that !@#$! studio so suddenly there is a nearly 30 year gap in the record. I stopped making private, personal pictures and did not restart until 2007 with that blessed tiny Nikon (thanks again, Daphne!). For me, and for many I suspect, Digital is something of a miracle. Not only can we see-it-shoot-it, but we can file it in a hopefully more organized fashion. Pictures that cannot be retrieved aren't much good. I do have some pictures from that 30-year gap; they are in shoe boxes, unlabeled, unorganized, no dates, no provenance. Digital at least has metadata baked into the files. You at least know what month and year it was made. My digital filing system has reached the tipping point where I must deal with it or lose control (too much is in my head). I have The Cold From Hell today so I am goofy and running off at the keyboard but the older I get the more important I think having that record is, if for no one else than for me (you; us). Rainier wearing her pink shower cap may be mundane (I can't imagine it but you know) but YOU saw it, YOU were there, and YOU made a memory of it that you shared. Even if it weren't a great picture it's nothing less than a minor miracle. I doubt I would ever hear a remark, "Oh, yeah, another Rainier-pink-shower-cap pitcher. SO 2017... :) Matt Quinn occasionally remarks that no one cares or will care about his work. I don't think that's true at all! That body of work becomes hysterical record the moment it is uploaded to the computer. Each image, good, bad, or indifferent becomes more valuable with the passage of time. Take nothing for granted.

(I'm sick, not my fault...) :angel:
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
