“Today, as every May 25th, geeks all over the world celebrate Towel Day and carry a towel in honor of Douglas Adams. The popular author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy died in 2001 at the age of 49, but his work lives on. According to the book, a towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Hence its symbolic role in this celebration. This year, for the first time as far as we know, Towel Day is being supported by the British publisher of Adams’ books, who organizes a photo competition.”
For a photographer a trip to the Great Falls Park in Virginia leave one spell bound. It is a great challenge to capture a good image, trying to hard to get it all dilutes the power of the falls and leave one struggling to get image out of the awesome place. Lots of visitors asking questions and taking selfies makes for a distraction from your real purpose which is to capture the essence of the place. I remember just standing there and taking it all in. I would love to go back.
