Is It the Camera or the Photographer?

Or maybe it’s just timing.

I took this little gem with my really old Kyocera flip phone, through a car window on a rainy evening.  I call it “A Nation Weeps“.

Do you like?

(Yes, I know the period is supposed to go inside the quotes, but I like it better this way, and it’s my blog.)

What do you think of my new photographer’s moniker?  I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my mom, and it just seems fitting.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

  1. Not bad, especially considering the age of the camera.


  2. It’s very effective

    Somehow I get the sense you took that photo on November 9th, 2016.

    I the photo, I love that the studios have Teddy Rosalie’s name! As far as I am concerned you can put the full stop wherever you choose, your blog your rules 💜💜

    I like the image.


    • But not the moniker? You can be honest. I’m trying to figure out if I should keep on with it.

        Depends on the purpose. If you’re using it to defend rights, you might have to register it somehow. If just an identity thing, it’s fine, I like it.


        • Thanks, Dan. I’m hoping to use the name for business at some point, in which case I’ll get a DBA. I already did all kinds of searches to make sure there’s no conflict with “real” photographers. The first couple of names I tried (for instance, CMStudio, which I really liked) did, in fact, belong to existing businesses or were so close as to be confusing. What I did like is that when I googled TeddyRosalie Studio, it linked to couple of the posts on my own site, and didn’t link to anyone else. I think it might work.

  6. Sometimes the accidental shots are the best. I love it!

    My stomach flipped when you described what according to you, this picture is. How appropriate. Sad but true. As for the new photographer’s monike, I’m not sure what you mean. 🤗
