Everybody loves elephants, you know.

What has that got to do with taking pictures?

2
Well, since you don’t do as much ‘as expected, from past history’ photography, your likes are down.

1
Well, it really doesn’t matter, you know.

Oh sure, everyone looks at their numbers and if you would Photoshop in an elephant or two, in an empty space maybe, your ‪likes would skyrocket.

1
Listen, it really doesn’t matter, though yes, I have seen the numbers go down over there and go up here, at least sometimes.

Not every post, true. Our most liked post here was called ‘Shaped by Participation’ or some-such. People are still liking it and it was #19 and you are on #43 or something.

I know, it was just something I dashed off one day. I didn’t put a lot into it. I could have made it read better. Made the point better.

Yes, but it hits a chord with some, apparently. We do so many things because others expect us to. In personal relationships, families, groups, WP, everywhere.

I think we should just be ourselves, pursue our ever-evolving vision (whatever that may be) with respect for others.  That is what we do here all the time, you know.

Yes, I think so too. Now, about this New Mexico thing.

Remember when we moved there we were awed at how many people we met that had never crossed the state line, some not even gone out of county on purpose (pretending Sandoval and Bernalillo counties is one big county, seeing as how Albuquerque butts up to the line and it would be hard not to cross it occasionally, accidentally).

2
Yes, I remember and we meet very few people who are from there anywhere else in the world. But today – ta da!

Yes, he had a Zia sun tattoo on his arm so it gave him away. (The Zia Pueblo sun symbol is also on the state flag)

So we chatted for a moment. He told me he and his mom went together and got them, which is cool.

1
Yes, that is more likely in some cultures that are not uncommon in New Mexico, a sense of family as an organic being.

2
Good old New Mexico, comprised of three different cultures which are considered important. Woe to the politician that forgets that. Haha on them. Oh! I got a photo too, but no elephants because we don’t have Photoshop to begin with.

1
Well, that’s alright then.
