A thought for the day - Experience

"When the ocean surges,
don't let me just hear it.
Let it splash inside my chest!"

Someday soon I'll have to post some of my "surfin' in Newport" photo essays from

  1. I didn't know you had this, Roy. I'll make sure I don't miss it again. How wonderful to find another outlet to your work.

  2. Very Nice Shot Roy! Blogging is like Gather at the next level.

  3. Thanks guys. Steph, I actually had this blog long before I found Gather. After that the blog got kinda neglected. now I've figured out how to do both, plus making more internet connections on Gather helped me get an audience for the blog that I didn't have access to before.

    Jody, I still do both. There are things I can do on Gather that wouldn't work as well here, and vice versa. And Gather has a tendency ro stir up ideas for my photography that I probably wouldn't come up with on my own, like the musical instrument shots, and a lot of the light-in-dark and b&w shots, which were all products of challenges on Gather. So there's room for both, and no need to define "levels".

  4. roy, i feel the same way, i had my cranberry herbs blog before gather, then neglected it. recent events really were a good thing, got me going again. i am so enjoying this.

    the quote, when i think of the wisdom of so long ago, it takes my breath away. after spending the summer in nyc on the atlantic - i know this feeling. i am headed to nyc tomorrow - weather looks clear, cameras packed...

    i must say gather has also given me such inspiration through it's challenges as well. i look forward to participating in them again. i have really been getting into picturesocial as of late too.

  5. It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
