Photo101-Graduation

“Work expands so as to fill the time available for its Completion.”-C Northcote Parkinson

It’s so sad to say goodbye but we must. This is the last day of Photography 101 from Blogging University. It has been a great experience and opened the door to some very talented people in my virtual classroom. To the staff, “Thank You.” To those who follow my work or took a peek at my blog, Best To You in your Endeavors. Here’s my last homework page, a wrap-up of my favorites and that of those who commented on my site.

 

 

Spotlight-A Sign of Humanity

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the Darkness.”- Desmond Tutu

This week another story touched my heart to the point of tears. This wonderful account appeared on CNN and NBC news.

Asia Ford, a woman who lost over 200 plus pounds struggled during a 10K race. When she reached mile five, she became ill. She was recovering from pneumonia and had not eaten that morning.

Her son, Terrance steeped in and took his mother’s hand to help her but pain and anguish covered her face as she debated quitting. She was already in last place. Lt. Aubrey Gregory, who, touched by this woman’s determination, introduced himself and asked if could help.

Lt. Gregory stayed with Ms. Ford during the last 1.2 miles as they spoke of several subjects to distract her from giving up. The story was a bright spot, a wonderful change from the ugly reports of police and citizens in turmoil. It was a reminder that when all is said and done, we are all human no matter what the uniform says.

Well our Photo 101 class is almost over. Our instructor states, “Triumph denotes drama of some sort whether it’s big or small. Playing with Contrast is a great way to enhance your photos for a more dramatic effect.” So let’s see what happens. (All rights reserved. Photos are that of writer of this article.)
