I try. I really do. But time and time again, what I see when I look through the camera is not at all what comes out when I download the pictures. It was better when I used my film camera – each precious frame had to be a winner, since each frame was bought and paid for, and would cost even more to develop. I choose carefully, and still discarded too many precious moments.
I see so much beauty in the world. I wish I had a visual way to translate that. I keep trying. But mostly, I know that my talent is in painting with words. Perhaps it’s time to accept that. Perhaps, even, to celebrate that.
