    “I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.”
    Annie Leibovitz
    1949

    Leibovitz is an American portrait photographer who made a name for herself in her ten-year role as chief photographer for Rolling Stone magazine.

    Made me chuckle! I will be so disappointed if it’s not what we think it is.

  5. Sparrows are up at dawn, and one presumes they release wind as the rest of us do, upon waking... gosh, I never thought I would have to explain that...

    Just in case ... I threw the towel after the first day. Shooting with a tablet just isn't my thing and since I won't have my PC with me for the rest of January switching to another camera doesn't make much sense either.

    Have fun folks!

  12. Lots of snow and super cold this morning in northern Vermont. A -16°F at 7AM probably means I won't be getting outside too much today. Noticed this one leaf on our snowy front porch as I came back from making a run to the trash. The multiple textures in the snow caught my eye as well as the color of the leaf. X-E2, Jupiter 8, processed in LR "Classic".

    Today’s baking attempt - a “Bara Brith” which is a welsh fruitcake for the uninitiated. It looks a bit burnt but it will be fine inside, trust me :) and anyway the crunchy bits are always good.

    My favorite Spring plant, Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia). Depending on elevation, these plants are covered with showy clusters of small bell-shaped white/pink/purple flowers from early May through late June. The waxy evergreen leaves are characteristic of the the family Ericaceae, which includes Azaleas and Rhododendrons.

    Day Six - the wrong time to sleep

    I’m know the Earth isn’t flat. Least not always. I’ve huffed and puffed up enough hills and mountains to know, at the very least, it’s extremely lumpy and bumpy. Today I could be fooled though - I am completely steam rolled over flat after a very late night last night and have missed the best part of the day to sleep.
