Monochromia: Pondering My Good Fortune

Previously in color, now in monochrome.
Have you visited Monochromia lately? If not, please do and check out some really wonderful black & white photography!

Even after all this time, I find myself thinking about how lucky I am to be hanging out, virtually anyway, with the rest of the Monochromia photographers.  I mean, seriously, I still need to learn how to adjust shutter speed.

I’m just going to sit here in the soft morning light, enjoy my cup of coffee, and ponder my good fortune.

  1. I sense it’s a good place to be, when you think your friends are a little out of your league. If they were quizzed, I’m guessing most of them think that about the others, and you. When everyone is grateful for the chance to learn from each other, and excited to be in each others’ presence…it’s probably a perfect group. That bench is just calling out for someone to sit down, isn’t it?

    • Thank you for validating my being a part of Monochromia. I am often overwhelmed with their work and knowledge. Don’t get me wrong. I do know that I have a vision, an eye. But I have minimal technical expertise.
      Working on it though!!

    • Thank you for your support and validation! Looking forward to our next Skype session!
      Is all well with you, Pauline? I’m not sure if you saw that I tagged you in a comment on FB. A friend from Radford was in Dunedin recently!

      • Hello! Just happened to see your comment come in. My perfect workday would be one where I could get up, enjoy coffee and time with reading, whether book, blog, or news. Then I’d go see patients, in between which I’d have a true lunch break, not one spent working while eating. That would be just lovely.

  2. I heard Conrad Anker (http://www.conradanker.com) being interviewed the other day. He’s climbed Mt Everest three times. He said, “if you aren’t making mistakes, there’s no challenge and if there’s no challenge, you aren’t learning anything”. His newest documentary, about America’s National Parks, is showing at our IMAX and I think I’ll go see it. Not because I’m into climbing but because I’m into his attitude. I feel the same about you LB, you’re inspiring! xo

    • I’ve heard about this movie, and, as an avid armchair Everest climber, have heard of Conrad, too. Let me know what you think. I’d like to see the movie, too.

    • Me, too. I love his comments about being challenged. I heard an interview with home about the movie, and loved hearing his passion. I wonder if we heard the same interview!
      By the way, you have such a way of building people up with words. Thank you. I love you; well, we all do $

      • Will let you know. Did you see any trailers for the film? They show them sleeping in these really small tents that are just hanging on the side of a mountain….let’s just say I get dizzy and nervous just thinking about it, LOL. Loving you too liddl’ B

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
