JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 04.24.21
Hey, yeah, so today’s my birthday.
51 turns around the sun.
Someone sent me a note on FB that said “Your photos give me lots of joy” (And it wasn’t even my mom saying that!)
I think that sums it up for me. I’m not a pro photographer, never will be (not even sure I want to be). But I’ve had some fun times behind the camera. Working with it, I see the world in a different and new way.
I see things other people may miss and I try to show that.
I like to make people smile with m photos, or prints I may send them by surprise.
I’m happy I’ve been able to develop this creative side of me, to help make people happy in this world.
I’ll keep on doing what I’m doing, trying to see the world in a new way, and get better with this box that hangs off my shoulder.
Stay safe everyone!

I presumed you did this for a living, you have a good eye for a photograph, more important than any camera or lens. Hope you had a Happy Birthday.
Well, thanks, Paul. Been with my current company for almost 17 years, and I often get the chance to mix my passion (photography) with my job. I can’t complain. My birthday was great – Spent a few hours of it with my camera, watching one of my sons play a doubleheader. Photos posting soon. 🙂
A belated happy birthday.
I think too many of us get caught up in looking for that killer image that we call art and miss many of the stories and fun things that are around us. I’m guilty of doing this.
We’re all guilty of this, David. Tell the stories around us. That’s what’ll stick.
