Why We Take Photos

Hepatic Tanager, Female, (c) Photo by Steve Kaye, in post: Why We Take Photos

Hepatic Tanager, Female

Here’s the reason why we take photos.

Someone sent me an e-mail asking if there was any way to improve a “blurry” photo (which was included in the e-mail).

I wrote back a few suggestions.

And she replied with thanks plus a comment that touched my heart. It was, “I laugh each time I see this photo.”

There’s an important message here.

Everyone likes their photos. In fact, everyone finds a special message in them.

So the next time someone shows you a photo, be kind.

Admire it. Praise it. Enjoy it.

In fact, imagine that you took that photo and that you were showing it to a friend.

What would you want to hear?

I’m sure it’s praise.

For example, the above photo is the best one that I have of a Hepatic Tanager, Female.

And yes, I know it could be better. Okay, it could be a lot better.

But I’m keeping this one because I laugh each time I see it.

Much success,

Steve Kaye
