Old photo, new photo, Ganges River, and my one-thousandth post

Ganges River
"If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera." ~ Lewis Hine 

I found this "younger-me" photo while going through slides, and thought I would use it in honor of my one-thousandth post. That's a lot of posts when each post is created from scratch, not to mention the time it takes to capture photos, upload and edit to my satisfaction, or not, if I am rushed. Still, no cuts and pastes here.

As you know, I have expanded my subject matter, now giving you a daily dose of both old and new photos taken from..., well, everywhere.

For newbies, I removed my "follow" button in the early days, but recently reactivated it. I know most people have me bookmarked, and I appreciate your daily visits. I hope I can continue to inspire photographers and enrich lives with a variety of subject matter. Though I no longer focus on Crisfield, there are numerous links throughout the site that will allow you to forever enjoy virtual visits to Crisfield, and of course, I will still be posting some of those lazy, dreamy photos that will make you want to visit and enjoy my peaceful corner of Maryland.

One-thousandth post? Do I get a cake, or something?

You can't see it, but the Ganges river is outside the window. I was relaxing after arriving for a very long assignment. I assure you, I did not look this refreshed the next evening. I hope to find a few more "younger" photos as I sift though slides and negatives, but I was never one for being on the other side of the camera. In retrospect, I wish I had taken more people up on their offer to take my photo.

And speaking of my photo, here I am enjoying retirement.

This is not the Ganges.This is from my Tuesday trip to Smith Island.
