My Photo


  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

Thanks for the thanks, Claire. Bridget's awesome. She's cool and very poetic. She always makes me want to continue to write. To open my mind up more.

"I did not always enjoy the photos I was coming up with - they sometimes felt forced and trite - but I have become so much more at ease with my camera. Where before I was often hesitant to freely take photos, I am now more confident with my camera in my hands."

Glad to hear that! Although I never would have guess in a gazillion years that you weren't completely comfortable with a camera. I am always in awe of your photography.

Thank you for the photographs, Claire Helene.
Don't know how you do it. I was recently telling a handful of "graphic designers" (NYC and environs bristles with them) that I'm not a visual person: I don't have a talented "eye." But for once after whining about my lack of abilities, I thought of the upside. It's that old inarguable, "I know what I like, though," response. Visually, I know not only what I like but what I love.
Wishing you joy this season and far beyond...forever really.

Aw, thanks ladies. You're the best. I'm more comfortable using my camera - especially in public. I think before I started this daily photo thing I was more covert about my hobby. Now I embrace it.

thanks, claire. i've enjoyed your project 365! you're almost there...

Thanks Claire! You're a sweetheart. And forget trite. Trite is like, the new black.
