Mother Agnes with Granddaughter Kate — Throwback Thursday   1 comment

EasterKate&Mom-B-W blogMother Agnes with Granddaughter Kate (Easter, April 11, 2004) — Image by kenne

I don’t usually do “Throwback Thursday” postings, but the other day I ran across this photo. Mother could be real entertaining at times.

Kate was probably listening to her grandmother talking to her other son, Tom. Look at Kate’s eyes.

Agnes was a great storyteller and had an identifiable laugh, especially when she was excited.

Once she was entertaining her grandchildren telling stories, I placed a small recorder near her. Like so many things over the years, it got misplaced, or accidentally tossed in a move.

“All Women Are Wounded”   1 comment

Kate & Jaxon (1 of 1) 1x1_edit blogKate and Jaxon — Image by kenne

All women are wounded
Who gather berries, dibble in mottled light.
Turn white roots from humus, crack nuts on stone
High upland with squinted eye
or rest in cedar shade.
Are wounded
In yurt or frame or mothers
Shopping at the outskirts in fresh clothes.
Whose sick eye bleeds the land,
Fast it!    thick throat shields from evil,
you young girls
First caught with the gut-cramp
Gather punk wood and sour leaf
keep out of our kitchen.
Your garden plots, your bright fabrics
Clever ways to carry children

Hide
a beauty like season or tide,
sea cries . . .

— from “Praise for Sick Women” by Gary Snyder

She is special.

The gate-keeper

To his life,

Knowing when to open

When to close —

Protecting;

Sharing;

Comforting;

Loving.

She is special,

Kate Caught In The Tide (1 of 1) blogFacebook Image

A few postings back, I posted the above photo, which I took off Facebook, of daughter Kate alone the Del Mar, California shore. I did a little Photoshop work on the photo, but wasn’t pleased — still I posted it because I like the captured image of Kate.

Later, I ask Kate if she could send me the original, which she did — much better, containing more pixels than the one I got off Facebook. I know Kate uses filters on many photos she shares on Facebook and she may have in this case — I didn’t ask.

It’s so easy to capture the moment, but often the user is thinking about sharing the moment rather than taking a quality photograph to share. Once a quality photo is captured, which Kate’s friend did, then you can use filters and third-party camera apps to share quality images you have captured.

At the end of the day, it is important to remember that whatever camera you may use to capture the moment, the best camera is always the one you have with you. So, think taking good photographs and not snapshots.
