“I never have taken a picture I’ve intended. They’re always better or worse.”

“I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do – that was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse.”

 It snowed on much of the eastern part of the United States yesterday. To hear people freaking out you would think this has never happened before. One long ago example…New York City schools closed in 1982 on April 7th when close to 10″ of snow fell. Still it was an odd way to celebrate “pay your rent” day (taxes were due yesterday.)

On April 16, 2012 I wrote the following…”It was a beautiful summer day. True it is only April but I don’t know what else you could call a sunny day with temps in the mid/high 80’s.”

On April 6th, 2014 it was close to 70 degrees.  Many people were doing naughty things…
