I was given the job of writing the Class introduction to our (my) first Gallery. The theme is “Things we can’t do without.” The three photos of the kids are my contribution. There are of course much more to my list of favorite things, but my weak flash photo skills cost me good prints of the entire Family, so the grandkids won out and I had to scavenge pics from my digital camera. I also was unable to incorporate the fireworks and the kids into one really cool frame…curses Photoshop, foiled again! This was supposed to be on film anyway…ho-hum! Next time…
What you see in the written word
Is the story the writer wants told.
What you see in a photograph
Is the artists story writ bold.
Both of these artists have given
What each of us wishes we could
Words and frames about the world unchained
They paint life as only they could.
All of us have some favorite things
Things that make us smile
These are the wings that lift us up
That send us that extra mile.
When all is failing and it seems life is through
When there is nothing that anyone can do
Look to your favorite rhyme in a book
Look to that photo of that special look.
Remember the faces and the places you’ve been
Remember that you can always pretend
That your there in that photo laughing and then
Know that those times can be yours again.
These are a “few of our favorite things”
We hope you find them pleasing
From the Summer ’17 Class of Photo 51
We wish you all a good evening.
