I have been thinking a lot, lately, about the digital photography “trend” of upgrading cameras, just as you would with computers and smartphones. And that led me to a broader consideration of how much we tend to not use things to their fullest potential (lifespan).
During our walk I took to noticing streaks of sunlight making its way through trees and buildings, and seeing how it reached the ground. That, and I was constantly watching the ground for fear of stepping/tripping on anything.
A break in the rain means an escape for this flock, and lucky timing for my camera and I.
I had forgotten about this Lego ornament. I can’t even recall how long we have had it, only that it came free with an order for a gift one year.
On these cooler evenings, this provided much needed warmth and comfort. It simmered in the slow-cooker all day; nice and easy.
My office mate does nothing but steal my chair to stare out the window.
The sun was out so I opted to sit on the patio for this conference call. I liked the way the sunlight was hitting the succulent pot, and how there was still some rain water stuck between the leaves.
I snuck away from my desk for a midday walk and stumbled upon this at a local park. I wish I had a basketball with me. Looks like fun!
The house, now decorated for the Christmas holiday, feels cozy and, well… like home.
Sometimes, it’s the simple and familiar sights that bring comfort to me. Like, when you sit down at a table and you’re given the chips and salsa basket, letting you know that good things are coming soon. So sit back and relax.
I’m coming to appreciate the different film simulations that are built into the camera, allowing me to apply those filters to the image as I’m photographing versus having to spend time post-processing.
I was one of those “why would I want an ultra-wide angle camera on my phone” people. That is, until I went for a hike and didn’t bring a wide angle lens for my camera, and remembered that my fancy smartphone might help.
