My friend, and fellow blogger, Becky at The Dusty Cellar is a brilliant photographer. I knew Becky back in the day when we were both marching band geeks at Upper Moreland High School outside of Philly. Becky was one up on me tho, at least SHE had talent and could play the flute. My "talent" was wearing a ridiculous gold lame' outfit with white pleather knee high boots (I feel the need to remind everyone I'm talking 1970's here!!) while waving my arms around on the field under the illusion everyone was paying attention to my band direction. Fast forward 30-something years to cyberspace and Facebook where Becky and I reconnected. Some things never change...I had upgraded my white boots and gold lame' to some serious killer shoes and more eco-friendly fabric clothing and still operated under lots of illusions... and Becky still had one up on me with her talent. This time photography.
Becky's work motivates me to get my butt into gear and start exercising MY photography muscles. She has an ongoing weekly component in her blog called "Midweek Blues" where she photographically captures "the blues" utilizing ANY interpretation of the word. She has been kind enough to invite other photographers to participate by linking their "blues" photographs to her blog. While I might have lead Becky around the field eons ago, I am now a willing follower and taking HER lead. Thanks Becky!
