Knowledge

As August comes to an end and the new school term begins, and with September being “Education Month” in Guyana, it is fitting that I just processed this photo.

Knowledge is powerful, and while we can be intelligent and knowledgeable without being literate, it is the written word that has the power to cross miles and years to communicate ideas of forward thinking and to reflect on historical events.

Read a book, give a book, encourage our children to read.

2015 Deck – Week 48

The photo did not come out as I had hoped, despite several efforts with the phone, and even though my DSLR was sitting right there, I had my mind so set on an Instagram photo for this one that I never even took a photo of it with the DSLR.

This was probably a case of a smartphone without a smart user, I just could not get the focus right, no matter how hard I tried, and I tried, many times….   but I still like the concept of the shot.

I was sitting at the table, and barely noticed this little battery sitting on the glass table-top, I tried very hard with the phone to get the battery in focus while keeping the wall and its reflection on the table-top as a background…  but nothing I did would keep the battery in focus long enough for me to click  🙂


2015 Deck – Week 38

The Jerk Hut

With a name like that I was expecting Jamaicans, from the accent to the food.  Sadly I was disappointed on both counts when I was there.  The grilled fish was good, but with more bones than I like (quite acceptable to most people, I’m just quirky that way), but the Jerk pork was nothing like what I enjoyed in JA.  It seems I must plan a visit to my uncle 🙂  Speaking of which, trips cost mulah, and if you see something on my site you like, don’t hesitate to buy 😀

Anyway, fun aside… this place was RED, from the tent/roof, sides, tabletops, aprons… all RED.  So, it’s not that I overdid it on the photo, it’s just that the place was like that, and the poor phone camera had a hell of a time focusing because of it.  I’m glad I got the shot I did.

2015 Deck – Week 35

There are times when you take a photo and know right away that you’ll love it; whether anyone else might, that’s a different question, but so far this one has turned out to be pretty well liked.

For those of us still living here and for many of those Guyanese living abroad… this is probably iconic of some areas of Georgetown.
