First Post/First Impressions

If you stumbled on this by accident or are a friend, family member, or acquaintance; this is my first posting. As a photographer I guess it is only fitting to begin with an image.

This image is a Photoshop composition I created recently. I added two doll faces to the overall landscape image but when I was finished I noticed a third face that I didn't create. It looks hauntingly like my father. Since he passed away almost four years ago I have been wanting some sign/communication from him. I'm not a religious individual but consider myself a spiritual person. I don't know if there is a god or an afterlife but I do feel a deep connection when I talk to my father. Well, for what it's worth, this is the sign I have been waiting for. Thanks Dad!

Dear Bill,
The awareness of your little eye now encompasses vistas that need
particular explorations beyond simple aperture, focus, or speed of
shutter. The quickness of your eye will now need to match with the
patience of your mind as it shifts into the analytic mode. In this
realm one never has enough needed data as one winnows facts that
uncover complex concepts. These concepts will entangle facts, values
and metaphors so that meaning becomes an archeological dig into
language. Truth often lies hidden in these brambles of reality. A
slower developing image is now needed and may be further hidden by
digital efficiency. Your acceptance of the blogger responsibility
indicates that you look forward to the analytic mantle. Best of luck
and Shirley and I will continue reading. Love Bill & shirley
