Monday Missive — February 8, 2021

Quotes

“Alone time is when I distance myself from the voices of the world so I can hear my own.” — Oprah Winfrey

“At the root of creativity is an impulse to understand, to make sense of random and often unrelated details. For me, photography provides an intersection of time, space, light, and emotional stance. One needs to be still enough, observant enough, and aware enough to recognize the life of the materials, to be able to ‘hear through the eyes’.” — Paul Caponigro

“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.” — Bob Marley

Snow patterns. This image won 2nd place in last week’s Baltimore Camera Club competition. Unfortunately I could’t stay for the Unlimited category judging. If anyone remembers the judge’s comments, please pass them on. Independent thoughts welcome as well.

  1. Regarding your second place finish in the competition: First of all, kudos! That’s an interesting and mysterious image with a sweet minimalist vibe. Secondly, the figure in the black square at lower left looks like a Shmoo from the old Lil Abner comic strip. 🙂
