Now that Blogging University – Photo 101 is coming to a close, I offer a thought that we are all triumphant in our endeavor to complete this course. For myself, I’d enjoyed the comments, the photos , the artistic endeavors, imaginations of all the participants. A parting word:
The little dissatisfaction
which every artist feels at the completion of a work
forms the germ of a new work. – Berthold Auerbach
So keep on imaging, keep on clicking, keep on blogging. Enjoy.
Life has meaning only in the struggle.

My first camera was a Kodak 110 camera. It was a great camera for a ten year old who just wanted to point and shoot. I really didn’t get serious with photography until I took my first photography class in high school. Even then I always wanted to take pictures of people on the street and I didn’t want want them to know so I didn’t get close to my subject.
Fast forward many decades, my camera has zoom and also I did get a zoom lens with greater capability. Still, I really don’t want to get close to my subject and I really don’t want to take pictures that everybody else is taking. Case in point, like this photo of other people getting close to the baby to take the picture.
However I got over my dislike of getting close to my subject. I just have to go about it differently. Here is a box of lucky money they were selling for Chinese New Year.
Glass is very interesting. You can see things very differently from glass. Then you can also see things clearly.
Reflections are even more interesting. In response to the assignment today, I give you reflections.
