Something to share in every single week throughout the year

Week 11 – Invisible Connection

A week ago (on Saturday), about the same time of the day, between 3 to 4 pm, I was taking a nap on my bed while Helen was heading to the place where her parents live; between 7 to 8 pm, I was standing in front of the lake watching the scenery while Helen was enjoying her tea time at home, etc…

I and Helen had planed to do a full day of photo shooting on a same date, starting at seven o’clock in the morning on March 10, 2012, then share the photos on both of our blogs.

Now, the photo project is completed, and the experience leads me to some thoughts about a magical connection between people who are thousands of miles away from each other, and have never met in person, but share the same interests – photography and blogging. And, it is these common interests that link people together. What a wonderful thing in the world!

  6. Excellent points, ristinw.
    It’s nice when the things that draw us together are stronger than the things that keep us apart.

  11. We can do so many wonderful things with technology now…
    it’s almost easy to take it for granted… but it really is incredible when you stop and think about all the possibilities / opportunities, isn’t it!?

  12. That’s a strangely thin looking keyboard. It is amazing that the internet connects people around the world with common interests such as photography. For me it’s cartooning. Once unless you were well known there was no way people around the world would get to see your work. When I used to do sketching many years ago before the internet was thought of the only person to see my drawings was my wife.

    • That’s my favorite keyboard πŸ˜€ and it always reminds me of white chocolate. I totally agree with you. Without the internet, I would have never seen your work. πŸ˜€
