My Favorite Things


I’d give all wealth that years have piled,
The slow result of Life’s decay,
To be once more a little child
For one bright summer day.
~Lewis Carroll, Solitude

These were a few of my favorite things...

The greatest poem ever known
Is one all poets have outgrown:
The poetry, innate, untold,
Of being only four years old.
~Christopher Morley, To a Child

The Other Woman

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.  – Henri Cartier-Bresson

My dad has a great, albeit rather dry, sense of humor. I can’t help but smile when I recall the first time I sat down at his PC to help him with a problem. It was then that I discovered he’d specified the computer’s machine name as “The_Other_Woman”, due to all the hours of his time it consumes.

As you might have read in some of my earlier posts, my father also loves photography. It was he who taught me at a young age to see photography as an art form in which I could let my imagination run and play. In so many ways beyond photography, my father is a role model, a mentor and a respected and valued critic.

After a lifetime of B&W film photography and weekends MIA in the darkroom, Dad made the switch to digital. This wasn’t a simple feat: it meant he had to first learn to use a computer so he could learn to use Photoshop. And when it comes to the computer, patience is never an attribute of his user experience!

This will be a surprise to him, but today I’m proud to share a few of my father’s photos with my readers. Please enjoy!
