Dr. Seuss in the woods


Because I have spent so much time today on creating a series of photography collections I may not have a lot of comments for today's actual blog post. Although once I get rolling I usually find myself talking about what I'm talking about. Which is what is happening now. And that is enough to get me to my per blog post minimum word count.

"What is your per blog post minimum word count?" Someone with a keen interest asks.

Wait, I have a per blog post minimum word count?

I'm not sure I've ever tried to write a blog post with as few words as possible, but I'm pretty sure it would start with: "Today I am going to try to write a blog post with as few words as possible!" At which point I would surely give up.

Today I went to Crosby Farm Park, one of my regular nature haunts around here. It was full of snow! As I may have mentioned I find snow, frozen rivers, and endlessly bare trees a challenge to photograph. Faced with this knotty problem I approached it in three overlapping ways. Today I am showing you an approach I have started regularly employing again: Don't worry too much about the pictures and then put cartoon characters into them.

Of course one still has to photograph the world in a way that is open to receiving the characters, which, today, all come from Dr. Seuss. I like this approach because it gives you a good sense for the landscape.

Post a Comment

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.
