Travel and Taxes
What’s that old Ben Franklin saying? “… in life nothing is certain, except death and taxes.”
And I always feel annoyed about the “unavoidables” around this time of the year…
In the USA, April is Tax Month. Our own wages, investments, and losses are all up to the scrutiny of the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) and due by April 15th, every year.
Yet, for photographers, April is also a good time to be travelling. Spring blossoms are beginning to bloom in the northern hemisphere while fall colors are becoming vivid in the southern hemisphere.
Either way, the earth is just that bit more verdant and ruddy. And it should not be spoiled by thoughts of death or taxes.
However, I’m traveling in April to South Africa, so my taxes must be submitted before I leave. Hence, this post and a fervent hope for a better next year.
