The Green Life

All the green.

Green. Green. Green.

Yep. That’s about it.

I saw this cluster of green leaves and thought that a wide shot might work. Looks like I might be right. The picture, with a little post production, is striking. And, it really wasn’t all that much work in the studio. I just went in the direction that I intended.

That’s it.

Let’s talk about WordPress.

It seems that every time they make a change there are unintended consequences. This time, the page sort of jumps… and posts. When I’m nowhere near ready. Usually, it’s after I’ve uploaded the picture and started writing tags. But, it always happens when my hands are away from the keyboard and mouse. It’s not me. It’s them.

I’d reach out to a WordPress agent, but they’ll just try to find a way to blame me. I’m used to that. It’s their way of making us give up.

If any of you have had this problem please let me know. And, how you resolved it.

I may just take a break until whatever is happening stops happening. I’m getting tired of my work. I might talk about making pictures that I improve intentionally, but that doesn’t inspire me. It is, as the late great Ernst Haas used to say, just stuff. The content and the subject matter isn’t there. There are a few reasons for this. I’m in the middle of sorting that out as we speak.

Maybe a break is in order. Maybe a change in the frequency of posts might help. That means fewer, not more posts. We’ll see. The problem with that is that I’m kind of OCD… it’s all or nothing. I was telling a friend of mine about that when it comes to photographing second lines. I either walk with all of them or I don’t walk with any of them.

I think I should work to change that.
