“Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself” ~ Zen Proverb
I was supposed to be back on Tuesday but sliding down rainbows was too much fun. Of course, taking photos can be fun, too, especially when you meet people like Buddy Jones.
I captured Buddy doing what a lot of people in Crisfield do when the weather turns nice - just sitting - enjoying watching people walk, bike, or ride by in cars or on scooters. We are a friendly town, and people really do like to talk. I have found out some fascinating things about people after taking their photos.
Buddy, who will turn 80 this year, was sitting on the bench in front of Sea Mark Marine in Crisfield, where he used to work for 27 years. He told me about his years building and working on boats. I could have talked all day but there were places to go and things to do. At least I know where I can find Buddy on nice days. If you are heading into Crisfield, just look for Sea Mark on the right. And be sure and wave or honk at Buddy.
