A Misty Maun...




“This benefit of seeing... can come only if you pause a while, extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to meditate.”


I borrowed this wonderful comment from Patty over at Crisfield Maryland, a retired photographer, she has the eye that many of us strive to achieve.

A misty morn on a hometown riverfront caught my eye...I'm frequently seen standing in the mists taking shots of my ol' man river...the Mighty Miss...the Mighty Muddy...now so polluted from industrial and farm run-off, the fish we used to love catching are no longer fit to eat, the shores now littered with used diapers and pop cans...how did we get so uncaring...?

We need to stop bickering about health care insurance and what a new president hasn't done, considering the load of crap he inherited and start believing in the real issue...global warming...what difference will it make to a dead and dieing planet...

Think green and think organic, it's the only way to save my view of this majestic river...click to enlarge and be there in the moment...
