Well, its been two months since the last post, and I almost feel like I still have nothing to add. However,  I did take a few pictures, and besides the ones I’m saving for end of season posts, I’ve decided to continue to share the things that I love, and keep up the crane folding metaphor. hopefully by the time I’ve posted a thousand pictures, something great will happen, like the cure for cancer. So here is to making the world a better place by “folding a thousand paper cranes”.
I have seen plenty of instructions and checklists telling how to take a photograph. I usually have to grab the salt shaker before i read them, because I have to take in quite a few grains of salt as I digest the directions. Yet after all the things I’ve learned and discovered, only one thing has really stuck. In photos and in life, try to keep it simple. Here’s an example.

I might not seem too interesting to some people, but there is more than meets the eye. In fact, sometimes it’s the eye that deceives us. I’ve heard that a photograph is the way people learn to see, and I hope that my pictures can show people a new perspective. I guess you’ll have to be the judge of that.
