I take pictures, therefore I am

In my retirement, I do civil rights work, where a picture really is worth 1000 words. I often visit our local jail. As I left one day, I photographed the gleaming silver of the barbed wire as it glistened in the sun. There's so much to tell the world about the human condition. And never enough time. I need to do better.

Welcome aboard!! In the wide world of photojournalism a picture can indeed say a thousand words. Do you also travel to some of the worlds more impoverished nations and capture the deplorable living conditions there? By comparison, things aren't nearly so bad here in the USA. Thats not to say we live in a perfect world, just that far more work need to be done in places where extreme over population, starvation, pain and suffering, police brutality are the norm.

Welcome to your forum!
The perfect photograph of the human condition may not have been taken. Never sell yourself short. It takes many years to get the right photo. For many, countless rolls of film may have sacrificed their grain. Keep shooting till you are satisfied. They you can rest. I have many more years before I can stand on my laurels.
