Thanks for the amazing support yesterday. It kind of blew me away. We may not all know each other but we all share the same feelings about blipfoto.
I sometimes use metaphors when I speak or write and a lot of people, especially around my town, don’t seem to grasp what I’m saying.
A couple of months ago I was tired of all the whining going on about a local issue. In a letter to the editor, I wrote that “the snowbirds don’t seem to realize that around here, they are the sun and the rest of us are the moon.” (Everything revolves around them.)
So, when I said, “...when you’re a blipper, you stop chasing just the sunsets...” in the news article, I meant that we’re not always looking for the perfect shot, the proverbial cherry on top of the end-of-the-day cake. Much of the time we blip what we see.
Wouldn’t you know it, a day after the sunset metaphor was printed, I ended up with a photo of a sunset between the houses across the street. And in exactly the way it was reported: while walking through the neighborhood.
(Anyone know why sometimes a photo taken and posted directly from my iPhone, with no editing, fails to identify the phone and meta data?) here?)
