Finding Keepers

Rich: Photographers call them captures or images, photographs that convey the essence of an experience or personality or moment in time in a way that requires no explanation, that speak to the viewer in a silent universal language. In my own humble way, I'm looking for captures or images that are "keepers"--ones that capture an experience or a moment or a memory in way that speaks to me. It doesn't have to be an Ansel Adams to anyone else but me.

With Jane away the last several days, I'm taking a liberty. Instead of exercising my acerbic wit by writing another stirring blog entry tonight, I'll let these keepers--these slices of life taken over the past couple of weeks--say all that needs to be said.

The search for more keepers goes on.


  1. Awesome. I can understand why these photos are meaningful to you. There doesn't need to be a specific reason--they each hit an emotional chord.

  2. These are lovely captures, and they speak a universal language. We will look forward to seeing more of them from you. Please.
