“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.” – Charles R. Swindoll
I often find myself searching for that quote that sums up the mood I am trying to capture and convey with the image. Sometimes its spot on, and sometimes its just a great freakin quote that has nothing at all to do with the image at all…..and tonight, thats the case. When I spotted this one, I just had to share it tonight. How true it is!
Anyway, I took what could have been a 3 hour beeline up the coast of Maine from Boothbay Harbor to Bar Harbor into an 11 hour crawl thru a few towns and photo stops. When I finally arrived, the last bit of color was just escaping the sky over Bar Harbor as I skurried to get the kit out of the car for the days final capture. Its a bit over saturated and baked, but so was I as I pulled into town! Tomorrow, the National Park called Acadia awaits m arrival. More on that later….
