    Always enjoy the articles you manage to find. You might like this one on the Amish and technology being into software.

      That is fascinating. It contains a great truth: everything we let into our lives, individually or collectively, is a reflection of prioritizing one value over another. We don’t think about that explicitly enough.

    All of your selections were great, but I especially loved “Happy Little Photographs” this week (even if it has me questioning the quality and value of my own photography). It was a wonderful rant, and even the comments were thought-provoking. Especially this line: “… if anything is to change for anyone, it has to come from an internal acknowledgement by an individual that there is more to photography than doing the same thing everybody else is.” I’m going to go home and think about that for a while, Jim. Thank you.

      Oh, don’t worry about the quality and value of your work. It is lovely.

        Very kind of you, Jim — thank you! My sunrises and sweeping landscapes may be a bit generic, but they do capture moments I found beautiful. In my little world, I guess I can’t think of a better reason to take a photo than to remember and share something beautiful.

          Right. At the end of the day there are only so many ways to render a sunrise And a beautiful sunrise is always worth looking at.
