Carry a camera, any camera.

OK, I said camera, that's my preference, and shows my age, I guess. Let me rephrase for the present time, have a visual device with you and use it. Yes there have been times when I have been thankful for for my CELL PHONE!!! It got me through my visual "Jones". There's just so much to see.


  1. You have no idea how many times I have wished that I had my camera. Thanks for reminding me.

    And the elevator photo is terrific, just terrific.

  2. Yeah, I feel like I only ever "see" that stuff when I have no camera...

  3. Hi Hugh
    Here's a little exercise if you're still doing German; my favorite poem about seeing:

    Zum Sehen geboren,
    Zum Schauen bestellt,
    Dem Turme geschworen,
    Gefällt mir die Welt.

    Ich blick in die Ferne,
    Ich seh in der Näh
    Den Mond und die Sterne,
    Den Wald und das Reh.

    So seh ich in allen
    Die ewige Zier,
    Und wie mirs gefallen,
    Gefall ich auch mir.

    Ihr glücklichen Augen,
    Was je ihr gesehn,
    Es sei, wie es wolle,
    Es war doch so schön!

    (Lynceus der Türmer, Auf Fausts Sternwarte Singend)
