Are you winter, summer, or both?

posted on 1st of december, 2008

I have figured out through the years that I am definitely a summer person.

I love the blue sky, the warmth of the sun, the longer days, the colors and sounds of summer.

Winter to me seems harsh , quiet, and cold. I know several people that would argue that but that's just my view.

Winter does provide a lot of winter sports, but for me they are all ways to pass the time until summer gets here.

At least once every winter we try and get to some tropical warm place to break up the cold season.

This not only gives a break from the deep freeze, it really makes you appreciate the vacation.

I have asked myself why live so far north if I can't stand winter. The only reason I can come up with is...

Like you, I am more of a summer person. But for a respite, I also love the cold and snowy winter viewed from the comforts of a heated living room with wide, wide window. Me wrapped in warm blanket, drinking hot tea and a favorite book.

I promise not to whine anymore than once a month about winter.

The gift of time.

A very wise person once told me the greatest gift you can give someone is the gift of time.

I think way to often and especially at Christmas time we put to much emphasis on money.

Not only is money a little tight for a lot of people this year but it is not a scale of love.

When I think back of the best memories I have of friends or loved ones it's not a gift. It's of an adventure or time spent together.

So when you can't think of that perfect gift. Give up some time and call or visit.

The best things in life are not things.

You are absolutely right! There is a song:

Who can say
if your love grows
as your heart chose
only time
And who can say
where the road goes
where the day flows
only time

Who knows - only time!

Model Appreciation

posted on 29th of december, 2008

I have had one heck of a lot of fun this year on Dreamstime.
I would like to think I have also learned a thing or two.

What I do know is that before the year ends I want to thank my models for letting me do what I like to do.

I am just a struggling photographer trying to make my way so none of my models are paid. Except the little boy, when one of his sells I give him a commission to put in his piggy bank.

The rest of the people are just good kind folks that let me put them in different posses and see if I can get a shot.

So thank you all for allowing me to put you out there for the world to see. I appreciate you
