A Quick Trip to Paris

Oh, ye old Eiffel Tower
Yes, you got all the power
Standing by the Seine, looking at you for hours


You are this town’s prettiest flower
In your eternal light us will you shower
Looking at you, we’re never sour

Thoughts for Quote a Week Tuesday

People often ask me what kind of camera I use. I must confess, after being a pix snapper for forty years, I have come to the conclusion, that the camera does not make the shot, I do. I used to drag all sorts of equipment with me even on travels, but since the advent of the digital format, I prefer to carry the smallest one with me, or just the mobile phone.

Of course there are advantages to SLR and various lens options, but then again, I rarely get the opportunity to just spend my time pic snapping anymore and when the opportunity for a great shot arises, I don’t care what camera I have with me, as long as I get the shot.

There are those who disagree with me and I agree not all of the snaps turn out as I imagined, but for me personally, the idea is more important than technical perfection. An image can be perfect in all ways, but still have no content. Even an out of focus image with a great vision, can be perfect. And in the end, if you yourself like it, then it is great!

Meanwhile, I think we can all agree on Chase Jarvis’ quote:

“The best camera is the one you have with you”

Almost Art for Mundane Monday

Posted in Mundane Monday

I think you can find all the elements that you can find in great literature in mundane experiences” Harvey Pekar

almost-art

Almost Art

It’s off the chart
A piece of objet d’art
Looks kind of smart
Add it to your cart
If you have a heart
And a complimentary tart
Will give you a jump-start
For no one can tear it apart
Because it’s almost a work of art

Caturday Poem 4

Caturday Poem

Happy with my kitty
So I wrote this little ditty
Why don’t you sing along
To the tune of this familiar song

Soft kitty, warm kitty
Purring on my lap
Sleepy kitty, happy kitty
Why don’t I too take a nap

My little ball of fur
Listening to you purr
Life is kind of a blur
But this is how I prefer
