Over the years I have taken some wonderful pictures with very inexpensive cameras. I have never considered myself to be a photographer. I always think of a friend who told me the gift is in the eye of the photographer, not in the lens of the camera. This same person stated that I have a talent for framing. That still doesn't make me a photographer. I just enjoy taking pictures, especially of natural things like clouds, trees, water and rocks. This morning a quote attributed to the late Leonard Nimoy caught my eye. It was: "A life is like a garden, perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory." The quote was accompanied by a beautiful picture of a garden on the edge of a body of water. It not only caught my eye, but reminded me of this photo I took, probably ten years ago. It is of the Animas River, flowing through Farmington, New Mexico and is probably the most perfect picture I have ever taken.
