A fellow blogger shared this quote with me today -

when words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs
when images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence
-Ansel Adams

It was perfect timing. My head was jarbled up with words after having to fill time for a radio spot. It wasn't even a conversation. It was "Here, you have 14 minutes to fill. GO!". 14 minutes doesn't sound like a lot of time, but IT IS! It's incredibly hard to fill that time and still appear at least semi intelligent.

So, I drove around in silence until I could focus again.

Wouldn't it be great to carry around a box of images all day and whenever you need to speak, you just through a handful of photos out. That person would carefully sort through the images and then say "Ah yes. Yes, I understand perfectly!". I think people would understand me a whole lot more clearly if I could communicate just in imagery.

I have projects planned this weekend, 2 in particular. I also have a massive amount of photos to edit (and when I say massive, I'm talking thousands). I sure do know how to procrastinate.

Oh yes, and a Christmas tree to put up. You can expect Christmas themed photos from here on out :)

-this concludes my late night ramblings-
