Today is the last day in May, and that gives us a five weeker for the Photo of the Month. This photo, I was photographing the Dover Rowing club, standing on a stone Jetty, and these three lads came up near me and I heard them talking. One of them said about vaulting the fence, and another said they couldn’t because “he is taking photos and we might get in the way” so I stopped and told them they were fine. All three thanked me and went and sat down with their legs dangling.
The photo struck me as a “Moment of Summer”. All three seated there, talking about tombstoning – and they decided against it, saying there were too many rocks. I was impressed with the politeness of them, and their intelligence – or lack of stupidity – when talking about jumping in the water.
I did want to photograph the fair (or carnival depending on your country) last night with my shutter open for a couple of seconds to give the impression of speed. I arrived there at 10:02pm and it was closed. Not just closing, but completely shut down, so they must have closed at about 9:30pm. WHat kind of fair or carnival closes at that time on a Friday night?
… Then When You Know Better … Do Better ~ Maya Angelou
All we can ever do is our best. Whether that be driving a car, taking exams, photography, storytelling, sports, or just being us. Eventually, we will know how to be better than we are today. When we learn, we start to know that our best wasn’t that, it was “okay”. SO the more we learn, the better we do. This is true in all walks and in all areas of life.
We learn how to deal with grief better. We learn how to take better photos. We learn how to be better friends. We learn more of the right things to say. We learn better ways to act. We learn more ways to cook, to walk, to talk, to run, to smile, to be …
Always do your best, it is always good enough.
