97/365 - When Less Is More

2011.04.07

1 + 1 = 4 ............ Please enlarge

1+1+1+1 = 2............Please enlarge

Lesson Learned: Sometimes it is not HOW MANY - but HOW that really matters.

Explanation for my wacky math!!!

1+1=4 means that the two girls that are rowing that boat are doing so in a way that is efficient, synchronized and as a team. Their effort is like 4 people rowing the boat.

The 1+1+1+1=2 means that the 4 guys in that boat are not working as a team, are looking in all directions instead of ahead and so their effort equals the effort of only 2 rowers doing a good job.

jeffcornish Rowing is such a cool sport to watch and these are inspirational Dan! Lets you and I get out on that river! Hopefully we are rowing in the same direction. A lot of people aren't! :)

HoosierAtHeART To me the lesson learned is that wide-format landscape shots stink on PB!!! ( I really don't mean your shots stink!)
I wish they would do something so landscape format was just as good as portrait format!

juliearnold93 The math gave me a headache! :) Great lesson!

lookagain Cool captures, Dan....and very interesting math lesson! Like many others math wasn't/isn't my thing ;))) I do love watching these rowers (is that what you all them?) - the synchronization they display is amazing no matter how many there are or aren't! Also...just an aside...I completely agree with HoosierAtHeaRT!

Annbramwell Have you ever tried sculling? For me it's more like 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = -5..... aaaaarrrrggghhhh! SPLASH!
