"JOURNALIST and PHOTOGRAPHER"
(that's my shadow on the wall)
"The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality, and eventually in one's own." ~ Susan Sontag
Say, "Cheese" and I'll take your photo and my friend will find 1,000 words worth describing it.
I'm sure all SmugMuggers can relate to and identify with the man on the right. Of course, the photographer in me loved this exhibit. Although this was probably my fifth visit to the museum, it was an awesome learning experience and quite visually and historically interesting. The exhibits change, so there is always something to see that was not seen during the previous visits. Dr. King fought and died for "human" rights and believed in justice and equality for all, without regard to race. The dreamer was killed, but the dream lives on. Live the dream, America!
Thanks to everyone who commented on my "Curly Buds" photo and perused the "Signs of the Times" gallery yesterday.
Have a marvelous Monday or not; the choice is yours.
