my thoughts for today

taken August 8, 2019
no details

this is a longer read, being at 862 words…

I don’t know why my computer didn’t record the details for this photo. It was taken on my other digital CANON camera, not my CANON EOS Rebel T6 but the CANON EOS Rebel XT. But it is what it is.

I’m going to share my thoughts for today early today. There is so much going on around the country (USA), that it’s hard to focus. I can, and I do, walk away from the news – every day. It’s the only way to function, or at least keep a clear head and not get so stressed about everything.
Some of it is a little political with a touch of religion and totally only my opinion, just a warning. I’m not preaching, just sharing some thoughts. If you just want to look at the photos I’ve included, that’s fine with me.

So, what’s going on?

  • the Corona Virus – part of me believes that a good part of this pandemic is fearmongering. Don’t get me wrong, I believe it is a serious thing. But there are so many other variables that something doesn’t add up. For me anyway. There are too many unanswered questions, or ones that don’t have a really good answer. Why is it safe to go to Wal-Mart to shop, but not Game Stop or Kohl’s? And now that the country is slowly opening back up, there are new factors. You have to wear a mask when ever entering a store or restaurant, but people with lung issues (asthma, COPD, emphasima) shouldn’t wear masks. And, if you’re eating in said restaurant, you have to take your mask off to eat. So, now, you’ve just contaminated the area. When out and about, you can see people, driving alone in their car, wearing masks and gloves. Ummm, everything you’ve touched in the store or where ever, you have now introduced to your car. The guidelines are changing almost everyday. How is it that one could get an abortion, but not go to church? Even in the parking lot, with the sermon live streaming? Why send people sick with covid to nursing homes? Why is that yesterday they were saying children didn’t have to wear masks, but today they’re saying 5 and older should wear masks? Why close down the country, when the “normal” flu and abortions have killed way more than this virus? That is, according to which site you go to or who you believe is right as different places have different numbers. I also get that the shut down saved many lives… many, many lives. And then there is the political view – United Nations, the W.H.O, and others. One World Government, the Green New Deal…
    There is so much that at the moment, I’m leaving it at that. I will however, in the near future, pick one question or thought and expand on it.
  • riots – it really saddens me, and urks me. Protesting peacefully is one thing, but destroying property and looting stores? Not ok! So what happened to cause all this? A black man was killed by white cops earlier this week. From what I’ve seen, only one, but there were other cops around, watching or whatever. Why was he killed? He was arrested for using counterfeit money. I guess you would say he was really detained, put in handcuffs and then, for some reason unknown, was pinned to the ground by the knee of a white police officer. He was detained on Monday. The details are still vague. And, it doesn’t matter if the cop was black or white…they still cry!
    Minneapolis is being destroyed. This has been going on for a couple of days now. Some of this rioting and looting, if not most, is being caused by people being bused in. There are groups that will pay people to loot and riot. I don’t know for sure who is causing all the destruction at the moment, but in time we will. It’s not just happening in Minneapolis either. I’ve heard of riots in Denver, St. Paul (MINN), Phoenix (AZ), Louisville (KY), Columbus (OH). I understand that people are hurting and they want justice, but I can promise you that justice will be served. Patience is needed here.
    There are also people (groups) out there that will blame the president. Saying that he didn’t do enough, or he didn’t do “it” quick enough. Somehow, they will try to blame the president, and he has been dealing with this since before he was sworn in. The same thing happened with Covid-19, saying at first he was racist for shutting down travel, then saying he didn’t do it quick enough. That’s all I’m going to say on that subject, for now anyway.

well, I guess that’s only two things, but those are two things that are on my mind right now. Like I stated earlier, at some point, I will pick a question or thought and expand on it.

Never let a good crisis go to waste!

  1. Hi Holly,

    I was wondering if you have any success with PicFair.

    Did you do the free rite or pay for the more professional one?

    • I started with the free, but eventually went with the paid. So far, I’ve only sold two on picfair. It’s been said, a nature photographer needs thousands circulating bc there is so much competition. I’ve only just started a little over a year ago. Pixels within the last couple of months.
      The more exposure you get, the better. I think.
      I hope this helps.

    • I have no idea. I do know my portfolio grew and I’m not hurting nearly as bad as I thought I would be.
