The Photographer Me – Chapter One: With What This Day Shall I Do My Time?

December 27, 2014

So I was looking for something exciting to do and nothing was coming to mind. Then I thought, “Hmmm… Maybe I”ll see if I can figure out this camera thing – I haven’t used an actual camera since I got a cell phone, and that might be fun.”
 
So then I thought, “But of what can I a picture take?”
 
And then I thought, “I know! I’ll take a picture of a rock! We must have a rock in the back yard somewhere, and I’ll hunt it out and take a picture when it’s not looking! Bwahahahahahaha…”
 
So then I went outside to find a rock to photograph…
 
I searched for hours and hours and hours. I searched high and I searched low. I searched the back yard and the side yard and the front yard…
 
And then – out of nowhere – I saw a rock in need of a selfie… *
 
I raised my camera thing… I aimed… I clicked the shutter…
 
And…
 
My rock was digitally immortalized… 
 
Then I thought, “With what shall I do this photograph, its preservation to ensure?”
 
I thought.. And I thought… I thought and thought and thought and thought and thought. Finally, I was thought out and nothing was happening, so I decided to commence to consider…
 
I considered and considered and considered and then considered again.
 
Considering wasn’t getting me very far, so I decided to ponder and see if that might help…
 
I pondered. I pondered again… I pondered again and again and again. I pondered and pondered and pondered and then I scratched my head and pondered one more time…
 
Still nothing. I was becoming discouraged and decided to get up out of my chair and walk around while pondering to see if that might trigger an idea.
 
While I was walking around pondering with all of my might, I happened to to see Judy working a puzzle and thought, “I wonder why Judy doesn’t use her Facebook account?”
 
Upon that thought, I froze in my tracks and, right out loud, said to myself, “Hey!! Maybe I can talk Judy into posting my picture on her Facebook page and make it available to the entire world, that everyone might enjoy the awesome beauty of my rock!”
 
I was excited!
 
So, with high hopes and expectaions, I asked her if she would do that…
 
But Alas… She refused.
 
And I became desperate… What was I to do? How would I share my joy?
 
Then Judy said, “Why don’t you put it up on your own Facebook page? It will mean so much more to your friends, coming straight from you…”
 
I wasn’t sure I had heard her correctly, so I asked her to repeat herself (something she HATES to do, I might add). She just looked at me and said, “You heard me.”
 
I rolled her idea around in my mind. I rolled it and rolled it and rolled it and rolled it again.
 
“Wait a minute… I wonder if this could work…”
And then, “Hmmm… This is interesting… I think that ‘rolling’ is more effective than ‘thinking’, ‘considering’ or ‘pondering’…
But I decided that to put it up on my own facebook page couldn’t do too much harm… In fact, I went out and found another rock to photograph and include in my upload…
 
In double fact, I found several, and have decide to upload the vast majority of them for your looking pleasure.
 
In triple fact, there are over a hundred of them to amaze you! Please, take your time as you gawk in disbelief and are overcome with wonderment. 

Or, at least, try not to fall asleep…

Addendum:

* Since a rock is a rock, after all, and not an animate object, it is not capable of taking its own selfie, so I did it the honor of taking it for it.

Addendum #2:

Attention! Attention! Attention!

After a brief exchange (no, we didn’t swap underwear) with my friend Judy Eckberg Robertson, I have decided that our rocks need names. And, after further brief exchanges with Judy E.R. and Judy Kammerer, I thought it might be fun to open up the naming of our rocks to you, my adoring fans, friends and family….

What do you think? You want to help us name a rock? If so, just pick one and submit your entry.

Thank you for your kind attention… That is all…
