Let the Beauty Around You Defeat the Ugliness

My black lab, Mia, and I were out for an early walk this morning during a moderate rain shower. The rain of the past week has greened things up nicely here in New England. I always take my phone on our walks because you never know what you might catch.

One of my weird photo addictions is taking close up photos of objects with fresh rain drops glistening on them. This morning provided the perfect opportunity for indulging.

It’s a good reminder, as much ugliness, chaos, and negativity as there is in the world, that beauty and miracles are right here, right now, and all around us.

Photographer Affirmations

Today’s Quote:

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
~ Ansel Adams

The Internet and digital technology has further democratized photography. It’s given all of us the tools to capture and share the moments of our lives instantaneously with friends and family anywhere on the planet.

However, there are still those intrepid souls among us who are ever in search of that perfect shot. They are the ones who document our collective lives on this planet. They photograph us at our important milestones like weddings and graduations. They go into harm’s way to document injustice in our world. They go to the ends of the Earth to capture the amazing beauty of our little world.

These affirmations are dedicated and written for them.
