–It only took 6 hours (2 hours of in-person training last week in Burlington, Vt….
not to mention the 6 hours of driving time, a 1 hour DimDim…or, as I call it, Dumb
Dumb…session this morning and 3 hours of trial, error and tears this afternoon) for
me to enter this one photo, here in this spot.
–Now that it’s in, I wonder if I can do it again. And, if not, why did I choose this
particular picture when I have so many others that I like, probably way more than
this one? Even so, it’s a good-looking daybed with its grain sack pillow (even though
it is so unfortunately placed across the center of the picture), very few weeds appear
in the spaces where I mean to have moss or creeping-something growing, the road
hardly shows. And, after all, it IS a country road. But what’s that spot on the stone?
Does it exist or is it some camera concoction? It was starting to rain as I set up the
shot and I had to think fast: save the daybed or save the camera? Oh, go ahead, one
quick click won’t hurt….
–But wait! Why am I obsessing over imperfections, both real and imagined, when,
finally, after weeks of wishing, success is mine? Look what I did! Who cares what it
looks like! In fact, it is fabulous.
