By Ted Grussing
… lots of work on a photo project this weekend and going through a lot of older folders; in doing so I came on this shot of a Daffodil that I shot back in 2005 late in the day in March … it was in front of the deck of friends who lived on the then 8th tee box and nestled in close to the wall beneath the deck. There was a light rain and the flowers had beautiful rain drops on them. I took the shot with an Olympus E-1 camera that had 5MP … not very big by todays standards, but more than sufficient to get an image than can easily be blown up to 20 x 30 and retain high quality. I was always pleased with the E-1 and have many wonderful shots from them … I owned several of them … they were good pixels!
We’re into a new week … Monday is here and methinks it looks like a very good week is underway. The hardest thing I am having on the book is narrowing the selection of photos down. I shoot tens of thousands of images every year, but a relative handful standout from the rest, like this daffodil … the problem being that after so many years shooting, those handfuls of exceptional and memorable photos add up to a pretty big number. So, later this morning after some rest and refueling with espresso I will wade in with a vengeance and do the deed.
Have a beautiful day, whatever you are doing, keep breathing and share a smile with those you meet and greet.
Though changed as are my songs from youth,
A voice within my heart still sings,
Live thou in tenderness and truth,
And love mankind instead of things.
— Max Ehrmann
