A HOLIDAY STORY.....December 16, 2014 https://www.rjgleason.net/blog/2014/12/a-holiday-story-december-16-2014

A HOLIDAY STORY......... This week I was at my local medical group for my bi-weekly (Pro-time) blood test. Unusually crowded, I took a seat next to this woman, and I noticed she seemed quite anxious and upset. I asked her if everything was okay and she said she was waiting to be called for her bloodwork and was waiting for what it seemed to her as a long time. We began talking and she asked me my religion....I said "Catholic" and she told me she was Jewish.... Somewhere in our continuing conversation, we moved to the subject of Israel and I mentioned that I was a supporter of Israel. We continued our banter and came to our joint agreement that our same GOD is worshipped in many ways, by many religions, but always to the same end.

Still, she kept looking up, checking each time the nurse called a name, but Annette's name not yet called. (we exchanged names somewhere during our conversation.....OH, and she told me she was 89 years old)

Then, my name was called!!! I got up, turned at looked at Annette, and grabbed her hand and said....."We're going in together and I'll tell the nurse you are taking my place" She smiled and gave me such a sweet but hesitant look, but said, "Are you sure it will be okay and we won't get in trouble?" (paraphrasing) "Annette, I said, "What can they do? We're Senior Citizens and We Have The Power!" (Now her look turned to pride and confidence) She then said, quite loudly, as I recall, "LET'S GO!"

Tests done, we both walked out together and I wished her a "Happy Hanukkah" and then, unexpectedly she reached up with both hands to my head, signalled for me to bend down a bit, held my head and kissed my forehead and said...."Merry Christmas, Bob...May Our God Bless Us Both....."

My Christmas is Complete.

Guide for determining print size vs resolution https://www.rjgleason.net/blog/2013/11/guide-for-determining-print-size-vs-resolution When someone says, I have a high resolution camera, that hardly means much, when it comes to the finished product, meaning "will my photo print at the highest resolution"?   For example, if you crop a photo, you can lose resolution and if your intent is making those extra large prints, you need to know just how big you can go.  If your subject is shot from a distance, and you want to crop just the subject and eliminate all the insignificant "additionals" in the scene, your crop will lose resolution.

That's just a very basic understanding to consider, but here is a guide you may want to keep for referral.

MY QUESTION AND MY ANSWER......More Musings https://www.rjgleason.net/blog/2013/10/my-question-and-my-answer-more-musings “How can we hold onto those fleeting moments in our lives? Hold onto the moments that otherwise evaporate into the forgotten past? Or moments that become faded and morphed into our own version of reality as they sit in the corners of our memories, losing their truth and shifting focus? The only way to hold onto these moments and share them for years to come, in all their beauty and truth and glorious imperfections, without losing accuracy is through a photograph.”
