Asking Quietly...

“You don’t take a photograph.
You ask – quietly – to borrow it.”
- Author Unknown

And so the year ends. 

Such a year it has been.

Loving Bill. 
Watching him create quilts.
Sharing “Heart & Soul” with him. 

Being with my niece in her last days. 

Exploring Australia.

Making new friends.
Losing old friends.


Being shocked.

Mostly being confused.

Making thousands of photos.

And always – always – being grateful.

The new year beckons. 
Things to anticipate.
Things to fear.

In a year-end ritual, I reviewed my 2018 blog photos.

My response?
Pleased, sometimes.
Proud, once or twice.
Embarrassed, occasionally. 

(“What on earth possessed you to post THAT?”)

Here are ten of the photographs. There are no people in them, despite my love of street photography. Not sure why it turned out that way. See previous reference to confusion. 

Something to think about.

I hope you enjoy these images and wish you a healthy, affirming 2019.

Thank you for reading my blog.
