It has been on my to-do list for a lifetime. As soon as I get compulsory expenses out of the way and hopefully save some dollars, I will get a nice camera and take a short crash-course on photography to get my photography career started.
No more trying to squeeze amazing views into a tiny mobile phone. No more wondering if my crappy little digital camera will decide to work today. I want to take photographs, real ones. The one below, I took with my crappy digital camera, which I will refer to as CDC from now on, could have been much better if I had a better camera:
My father used to have a powerful manual camera, at the time it was top of the line, one of those professional-photography-only cameras. He had different lenses and he used to take magnificent photos, which then got put into slides. He had boxes and boxes of slides, which I believe are in the downstairs spare room in my parent’s house still, safely tucked away – I hope. Life took this hobby out of his hands. Let me rephrase that, he let life get in the way of this wonderful hobby of his. Work took precedence and sitting in front of the television became his thing after a long day of business hassles. That’s a shame. I hope he gets back into it one day, and remember the fun he had taking the photos, working on them, making them into slides, and the fun we had sitting on the big couch waiting excitedly, as he clicked the slides away.
There are blogs I visit, with photographs that blow my mind and inspire me. Should I win any awards with my photographs one day *chuckle*, I know who to dedicate my award to!
