Paper or Plastic?

December 28, 2010

For many of us, this question is the deepest philosophical issue we confront on a daily basis. My local market offers a 5 cent incentive to forgo the bag altogether.

Carrying things is nowhere accomplished so elegantly as through the Mercado in Granada, Nicaragua, where anything you can imagine that needs carrying is carried on the head. Headloading apparently requires far less energy expenditure than say carrying the same weight in front or even in a back pack.

This acrylic painting was inspired by memories of Granada and done in the Correctional Center with the students.

Sunshine and Blue Sky in #BTV!

December 19, 2010

Not to be taken by surprise, I have acted as if I always knew we would see a day like this again sometime.

So I photographed a few things with a borrowed camera. I’m starting to recognize the need for a higher rez camera, if I want to be more savvy about online sales possibilities.

I almost can’t stand the idea of another research project right now, that is, the necessary investigation I will need to do before making a camera selection. COULD SOMEONE JUST TELL ME WHAT TO BUY PLEASE?
