Sometimes, it's wonderful to find that an inspirational billboard appears on one's way to work.  I guess it would have been easy enough to drive by without registering, or registering it momentarily and then forgetting it.  But John Berger, "Understanding a Photograph," is at my right elbow as I try and throw tomorrow's class together, and now that I've photographed this, I know that I saw it: "photography," as Berger says, "is the process of rendering observation self-conscious," and that's as good a description of what I do every day as any.
