Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.
– Etty Hillesum
When I have a toothache, I discover that not having a toothache is a wonderful thing. That is peace. I had to have a toothache in order to be enlightened, to know that not having one is wonderful.

I am feeling very foggy brained today and have nothing to offer except this: I figured out how to make a gif out of a live photo! AND I can use it as a featured photo on WordPress!! \o/
I decided to move the Postcard swap over to Elfster for the time being. I was having some glitchy issues with Google Forms. We used it a few years ago but left for reasons I can’t remember. But now that I’m back I kind of like it. There is a way to communicate with everyone in the group, questions can be asked and answered group-wise. There is also a place to share photos of the postcards people receive, which might be fun. So anyway, if you are interested in signing up, go over there and fill out the form! We would love to have you! And please invite your friends! The more the merrier!
If you are wondering what this is, we are a group of photographers who exchanges postcard prints of our original photography. We are film and digital photographers. The only real rule is that the photo must be your original work.
There is only two more days to sign up for the December post card exchange! The last postcard exchange of 2016.
This month I received a post card from my friend Gretchen. She is one of my fellow #PinholeMayhem crew. We’ve had lots of fun shooting together over the past couple of years. She is an amazing photographer. Please visit her website to see more!
The postcard that she sent me is one that was chosen by the BBC for an article about pinhole photography. It’s beautiful and I’m going to frame it.
