I’m smitten with my camera. That’s probably pretty obvious. Yesterday, I spent a few minutes actually contemplating purchasing a police scanner. And then it occurred to me that I prefer taking pictures of people and happy times more so than death and destruction. Unfortunately, it’s death and destruction that viewers and publishers generally gawk at. But no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to comprehend or accept that. Occasionally, this grim reality sucks.
Anyway, I’m smitten. I carry it everywhere. And slowly, I’m getting to know it. I read the manual on the subway and anytime I find I’m waiting. There’s a lot to understand and I made a promise to myself that I would get to know this camera like I’ve never known one before.
I snapped this recently on the subway. I had it over a Flickr but I really wanted the ability to show it larger. If you click the 500×335 thumbnail, it will enlarge to about 1010×676. Big is better. Sometimes.
For some reason, I really like this shot. Perhaps it’s because I wasn’t supposed to be taking it. Perhaps it’s because no one caught me (except for maybe the guy on the far right, front) until after it was too late. Either way, I like it and I want to share it.
