Short stories


It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But I have seen "words" and am eager to say:

It really does depend upon the words in question.

As regularly happens over the course of a month of photography I am left with an assortment of pictures that I am pleased with, but that don't fit with any narrative I have to share with you. I cannot, for instance, bear to carry on talking yet again about copses, nevertheless I still have one or two more copse pictures burning a hole in my pocket. 

Are these copse pictures worth a thousand words?

Maybe not the first thousand words on the subject of copses, but probably the third or fourth thousand words?

And so it is with another picture or two or three or four of Winter ice, another of a stream, another of a creek dried out in Winter, one of a local nuclear explosion, and all the assortment otherwise I herewith present to you.

Which is to say:

Surely each of them are worth a thousand words,

But I will not say which thousand words.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
