My post last week with the abandoned railroad bridge (you can check it out via this link and I’ve added it as a thumbnail in this post) is entered in a Fine Art America contest. Please take a minute and go vote for it!
You may remember a couple of days ago I asked for some assistance with a quote for my quotography project that I am participating in.
Well, sadly, I didn’t get any advice from my lovely viewers. I know that y’all were actually sending it to me telepathically but my interpreter is on the skitz….
Anywho, I thought I would share my submissions with you – as I just sent them off to the project folks. Here you go- Enjoy!
Quote 1: Never look back unless you are planning to go that way. – Henry David Thoreau
This shot is of my Jeep. It is taken from side rear mirror of the front windshield. So in looking back I am actually looking to the glass that I would look through to drive forward. It seems that you may have to remember all those things that you learned but always keep your eye on the road that you are currently going down….
Quote 2: I have a camera in my hand, I know no fear. – Alfred Eisenstaedt
Hiking is a love of mine. But heights are not. So I braved my fear of heights and hiked almost 2 miles, according to my pedometer, up to Fairy Falls. It was so worth the trip!! (on a side note: I usually have no fear when trespassing on someone’s property in the name of getting a photo of THAT – whatever it may be! And I usually get in trouble from my hubby about this little lack of fear. But capturing the photo of this lack of fear would have gotten me in trouble so I went with my second choice.)
Quote 3: All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I LOVE cupcakes! And I love cupcake shops. My problem is that I can never decide on a flavor that day so I end up buying half a dozen trying to see which is my favorite. But then I like them all and so I still don’t have a favorite. But this is one experiment that I love doing time after time after time!
