A Pink Spot Between Two Moons

“As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows, cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind.”
– Cleveland Amory

The title is a reference to Cooper’s little pink nose and those big, moon-like eyes. Probably not what you were expecting…

Look No Farther

The wording on the door sign at “Images by Fisher” in Holly Hill promises that one need “look no farther” for a unique gift. As I studied and framed this scene, it was the unique grammar that caught my attention. I have often looked no further, though I don’t recall a time when I have looked no farther. So, what’s the difference and is one of these words incorrect for use in this phrase?

In my mind, I think of “farther” as implying a distance not yet traversed, while “further” seems to most often have a place already reached attached to it, as in, “I shall travel no further than this today” vs. “I plan to go farther.”

What are your thoughts, dear reader? In any case, you need “look no further” than the bottom of this post to leave your opinion and comments about this matter or today’s photo.

I greatly appreciate any and all shares of my posts, as they let others know about and find this virtually unknown blog. Thanks for stopping by!

Halifax River from Holly Hill Shore

“What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn’t have any doubt—it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn’t want to go anywhere else.”
Hal Boyle

I think I would like to have a rowboat. I have always loved the water – especially lakes, rivers and streams. Yet, I don’t want nor need the hassle of a “real boat”. And there is something attractive about the memory and idea of just floating along, unencumbered by purpose, expectations or time.

There are so many lakes and streams in the area waiting to offer themselves as photographic subjects. The problem is that viewing and photographing them solely from the perspective of the shore tells only part of their story. It’s like hearing only one side of a telephone conversation: you’re left to assume so much about the other side. So often our assumptions are wrong. I can’t help but wonder what I could see from the other side.

Because of its width, the embedded view of this photo is rather small. Click on the image to get a better, enlarged view (as always).

Street Portraiture: Faces of Kissimmee, #5

“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.”
– William Arthur Ward

Had the above quote been mine, it would read, “A warm smile and/or a great cup of coffee is the universal language of kindness.” Shaina (pron. “shy-ana”) delivered both of these. Her smile seemed to light up the darkened room, and I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to capture it through the lens. When I asked to take her photo, she was a little hesitant at first – as though a perfect stranger asking to take her photo isn’t something that happens to her every day. I find that hard to believe.
