Beginning Anew

A good photograph is knowing
where to stand.

~ Ansel Adams

I found the this quote here, as I was looking around online while I pondered starting anew. Unfortunately, the blog on which I found it hasn't been active for a year. The photography is stunning.

I am beginning this blog in part out of a desire to see and express myself differently than I have in the past year-and-a-half. (There are other blogs, under a pseudonym.) I don't know what that means yet, and I am just beginning to figure out the new camera that is supposed to help me. (OK, so I haven't figured anything out yet beyond how to insert the battery. New technology always overwhelms me, and I have to contemplate it for awhile before I begin to experiment with it.)

I presume that Ansel Adams is talking about knowing where to stand in a physical, geographic sense although, given the power of his photography, he may be speaking metaphorically as well. For me, his words speak first as metaphor.

I'm not sure that I have any words at all for the place in which I stand now.
