In last week's blog, I asked you to share your "six word memoirs", and as expected, there were some six word wonders. Everyone, at one time or another, is a writer, whether by putting pencil and pen to paper or typing, on computer or in text form or just putting words together in your mind. We all do it and have the potential for greatness. Given the theme, I spent some time setting up and photographing pieces of writing from past and present, with natural light, fill light of different sources, including in-camera flash, muted house lights, and candlelight. Shooting from as much as twelve feet above to three feet above, or almost at ground level, challenged me in very good ways. The three images that follow are each slightly different, and offer a number of moods.
So here are the jewels you were kind enough to write and allow me to use.
"Family is the most important thing."

"Yes, when things feel more safe."
"I think positive and test negative"
"Love's the key to all locks"
--Jean and Sam
"You are a writer, and fast."
"Read their list, admired everyone's talent."
"Now yours just as well, hmm."
"I'm still pondering my slow reply."
"The sun burns through the fog"
"When her laughter fills my heart"
"Listening and learning a stranger's story."
Thank you so very much for writing and to Char, Suz, Carol and Larry, Wayne, Barbara and Clyde, and Debra for your comments as well!
until next Monday,

I really enjoyed your concept, Daryl. It was fun to dash off a few "memoirs" in six words. It harkens back to something we discussed awhile back, that of crafting the perfect phrase. When you nail one it's a delight. I'm not sure mine were memoirs but they were six words.
Thanks for sharing these.
Nice shots, I like the second one the best.
It is so much fun to experiment in photography.
