"Explorage" - Is it a noun or a verb? It is kind of like storage or verbiage or maybe linkage. I think of it as the stuff I collect on my forays to those little places I never stop to really look at unless I am alone. Recording memories, views, places and the things in them that attract my eye and ultimately my camera. My study of color, shapes, things that go together, things that don't, things that inspire me to aim my camera. For me, EXPLORAGE is a constant collection of images and good feelings. Whether it is the action of collecting or the images themselves I have not decided. Heck, I don't even know if it is a real word, and I am afraid to look it up, because I might be let down if it is or if it isn't. I want my own definition. So, until it is challenged by a higher grammatical power (like my mother) I am going to use it to define the experience of gathering the images that leave a trail behind me. So here we go, my first documented "EXPLORAGE" with my constant companion, my friend, my camera.
