The real voyage of discovery

Great Ape Thinking

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Author: Marcel Proust. I once sent this image to a hiring manager on a post card with the above quote at the bottom. I had my subject holding a film strip in his hand that said “Jim for Hire”, as a final touch. The manager called a few days later an offered me the interview. When I arrived for the interview the post card was propped up on his desk for everyone to see. Yes, I got the job. So, a little self promotion rarely hurts if you are creative and subtle. Tech: Old Nikon 35, color film (400 ASA), Vivitar 70mm-250mm.
