Tightrope Walkers
As I was looking through the pictures I shared this week, I had the realization that “Joy is in doing” — it is the process, the experience that is important, not so much the product, the result.  These young people, I imagined, are not doing this tightrope walking for money, to compete in an international Olympics, or to get social acclaim. They do it because it pleases them: to fight the gravity, to get better in balance… to fall, but not to be defeated. Why don’t we do the same with our photography or poetry, I asked myself. “Joy is in doing,” after all, isn’t it.

I took these pictures in the JFK Park, in Cambridge MA, in September and November months of the year 2018. The first time, I had my “point-and-shoot” fixed lens FUJIFILM X100T camera, the second time I had my “system” camera X-T2 with two CANON FD manual focus vintage lenses of 200mm and 135mm focal lengths. 
The pictures I shared this week can be seen in these albums:
