A Thousand Words AND Pictures

- POSTED ON: Feb 17, 2011

Remember that old saying, “a picture’s worth a thousand words”?
Text people normally communicate by using words. I think of myself
as a “text person”. However, I am enamored with emoticons-
which are, of course, little pictures.

My normal lifestyle doesn’t involve cameras, except on special
occasions. I own a digital camera, with mega-memory,
that downloads or prints easily, but I seldom even remember
to take it with me when I go on vacation. When I do take it, frequently
I return from my trip with blank memory cards, because I was too
absorbed in experiencing the Now to record it for later.

Sometime in the 1990s, my husband gave me a video camera for Christmas.
I’ve used it less than ten times, and one of those time was at my daughter’s
college graduation ceremony. Although it still works, now it’s obsolete.

My-son-the-web-genius has convinced me to enter the world of pictures.
DietHobby has the capability to share Videos, in the link VIDEOS under Resources.
and it also contains a Gallery for still pictures.

I’ve already put up some videos that I find relevant to DietHobby,
and I’ll be experimenting with that section until I get a better “feel” for it.

Recently, my son came to my home with his professional camera, camcorder,
and lighting equipment. He took still-pictures of me, and filmed me cooking
some of my low-calorie recipes. I haven’t seen any of these pictures or videos yet.
It’s been years since I’ve seen a “home movie” of myself,
and I really have no idea how I will look or sound. He says I’ll see the videos
after he uploads them to YouTube. However he’s kind enough to let me see
the still pictures first so I can choose which ones I want to share here on DietHobby.

So, DietHobby will be A Thousand Words AND Pictures.
These will involve different aspects of Dieting, will be related to that Topic,
and most videos will be created by other people.

That said…here’s an Off-Topic video that I find fascinating.

I love your emoticons. You use many, but they are never overdone, and are spot on. I think it personalizes your written statements. I am not that savvy when it comes to technology, but I have a twenties daughter who helps me out when I can corner her. I will look forward to your photos and videos. You are brave! TexArk

             TexArk, Thanks for giving me your opinion about this. I don't know if I'm brave or if I'm just foolish, but I'm really having a great time doing this.

Note to Marc....in trying to reply to your comment, somehow I deleted it. I am just learning how to use this site, and we are also trying to work out any glitches that exist. I'm really happy you registered and that you posted, and I look forward to seeing your future comments.

I have always enjoyed your emoticons. I look forward to your cooking videos. Tomorrow, I will fix mock pancakes with ricotta cheese as a comparison to the ones made with cream cheese.

             Thanks Karen. I can't believe how fun making those videos was.

I appreciate the organization of the videos, especially the informational section. I have tried to keep them organized on a check-in thread in a forum and on my own computer in a folder with various headings. Seeing them on a site is quicker.
