I loved JoAnn Hart’s piece about walking at Niles Pond. I, too, enjoy walking there, and as another walker said to me on Saturday morning, "it renews my spirit, and we need that today." As I walk, I find heart shaped stones-they fairly leap up at me, reminding me of the love underpining the universe. I set them along the path, in my own little public art displays.  I hope they speak to other walkers. Here are my two grandsons, Eli Hughes and Logan Do Carmo, checking out my work.

Chickity Check It! “The Photographers You Idolize Are No Better Than You” By Lee Morris on FStoppers

The Photographers You Idolize Are No Better Than You

an excerpt-

The Unnamed Trait
The most important trait is something that I don’t think I can fully explain with a couple of words. This trait has nothing to do with photography specifically, it has everything to do with success in general. Successful people are “Do’ers.” By that I mean successful people accomplish things. In many cases it doesn’t even matter what they do, they just have to do something, anything, over and over again. “Talented” people take initiative to do, create, or start something. The average person doesn’t actually do anything themselves; they go to work, they do what they are told, and then they come home and watch tv and get ready for the next day of work. Successful people see a problem and then fix it. They have an idea and they create something. Think about the people that you look up to in your life. You probably admire them because they have done something unique or different or they do something specific very well.

The average person is a talker. They claim to be smart, they claim to be talented and they claim to have great ideas. But they also always have an excuse about why they aren’t doing anything. Don’t you know a person that is always planning something big but their big ideas never turn out?

YOU could be the next model rep for Oasis Rockport!  I need Brand Ambassadors to help represent Oasis Rockport and recruit new Seniors for their senior portraits.  I’m currently taking applications for the Senior Ambassador program for the class of 2014!  If you’re currently a junior at Rockport, Gloucester, Manchester/Essex or Ipswich High School and you would describe yourself as outgoing, fun, motivated, fashion-savvy and stylish, then we want you!  We’ll be selecting only a few Ambassadors from each school, so spots are limited.  Those who are selected will receive a complimentary senior portrait session and the chance to earn valuable print credit towards their portrait packages and additional Visa gift cards!   You will be representing our studio as a Brand Ambassador throughout 2013 and your images will be seen on our marketing materials!  You can find out more about the program by clicking the “Senior Ambassador” link on www.oasisrockport.com.  There, you’ll also find the link to the application as well as details regarding the parent/student contract.  Interviews are being conducted now, so apply today!
