Your Pants Will Dry

with 8 comments

Wet Seat

It’s always best to check the seat before you sit down after it has rained. I say that not because I’ve heard that before but with the voice of experience and admittedly more than once. We only attain the voice experience from our trials and errors. This is so true with our photography. It reminds me of Ray Ketchams’s post where a spark of an idea and a little bit of action allowed him to light up the forest in an unusual way. He makes a couple of powerful statements in his post: “Fail, fail and fail, no one ever learned anything by only knowing success” Β and “When it comes to an idea or a photograph don’t ask someone else what it will look like, go out and try it.” So go ahead and try, your pants will dry.

  1. Excellent post, Monte. Yea, my method all these years…fail, fail, fail. πŸ˜‰ However, this particular morning I believe my pants would freeze rather then dry. Have a great weekend!

    • @Earl: Yes, we are sitting at 18 degrees this morning. It almost took my breath away this morning as I headed to the airport for a 4 day trip. Have a super weekend!

  2. Your pants will dry and your butt will warm! πŸ™‚ Hopefully you’re going somewhere that’s warm. Enjoy!

    • Our first night is in Richmond, then the next two nights are in Albany and Buffalo. Doesn’t sound too warm, does it but hopefully dry.

  3. Monte thanks for the shout out there. I pretty much have the ‘wet pants’ thing going all the time. Shoot if it was easy anybody could do it, right πŸ™‚

    • @Ray: I now wear almost exclusively the nylon convertible pants by North Face and Columbia. They dry quicker. πŸ™‚

    • Yes, those little drops, liquid or frozen, always call my attention.
