One of the things I like about Dreamstime is that just like a strong community everyone has an opportunity to share what's on their minds without being judged to harshly. Some folks have fifty photos in their portfolio and some have thousands.
So as I am working my way through the community my plan is to have my portfolio look like a hardware store. I would like to diversify like a good investment plan. If someone wants a colorful background photo then I'll have it.

Thurs. November 22nd is Thanksgiving day in the U.S.

I love to watch wildlife and how they live. I have come to really appreciate the Canadian geese. As I get closer to winter I increase my complaining about how cold it is, how the cost of heat is rising, how the days are so short that I seem to never see the sun.
Geese on the other hand start practicing the vee flight pattern for migration.
I sit in meetings preaching how we all need to work together and make teamwork more than just a word.
Meanwhile the geese use each other for lift as they fly and change leaders often so no one goose has to take all the wind.
In the middle of winter I'll be here in the deep freeze.
Oh., and the geese? they keep going south and won't return until it's warm and the days are longer.
