[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever
[Photos this week are hosted right here on WordPress.]
[All photos except for the last can be clicked to enlarge. The last might be right-clicked to open in a new tab or window.]
The challenge this week is led by Patti.
Food for thought. What ARE my favorite things? Right off the top of my head, not necessarily in order: Music (rock, folk, GUITAR). Mountains (NATURE!). Cities (that’s where the PEOPLE are). Traveling (to see mountains, cities, and that we are all fundamentally alike: work, food on the table, home, family). Architecture (oh that creative psyche that is Man… and Woman). Reading, and reading history. (We are doomed to repeat it, regardless, I observe.)
That should get me started.
The easiest first, I suppose. Reading history. I’ve read and summarized over ten years’ publication of Lapham’s Quarterly, which says of itself:
“Lapham’s Quarterly embodies the belief that history is the root of all education, scientific and literary as well as political and economic. Each issue addresses a topic of current interest and concern—war, religion, money, medicine, nature, crime—by bringing up to the microphone of the present the advice and counsel of the past.”
I think reading history, or L.Q. at least, is definitely one of my favorite things.
Architecture, traveling, and cities might all be combined with pictures of buildings. (I’m the first to say photographers take photos, I take pictures. Sometimes they even resemble a photo. 🙂 )
Scenes from four different cities. No, one is not Amsterdam, but you’re in the right country.
Mountains, and the great outdoors. Verrrry big on the favorites list. I’m forever, within this lifetime at least, in awe.
Did you see those ski runs? Skiing is a huge favorite too, though I cutting back, way back, in my seniority.
Ooh, I almost forgot museums, and puppies of all ages. You who cannot like this dog are banished! Banished I say!! Sadly, she passed away a few years ago, but is not forgotten.
Museums, another time. Music, too. Love it, love it. …These are a few of my favorite things.
