Well, my new Nikon camera is making me feel young again, in a way. I’m re-discovering the joys of SLR photography.
On June 11, I started to play more with the “second” lens, a 55-200 mm zoom lens. One of the powers that photography has is to freeze a moment, another is to draw attention to a part of a scene, something that you see, but don’t notice. That power is magnified with a lens that magnifies, and I think my fingers photo of young Amelia makes that point.
I also like how I caught dad Wyatt and grandson Tristan with the same expressions.
In the “freeze-action” category is the bee photo.
Well, it’s always fun to look at the world in a new way, and I hope these images are a bit interesting. I suppose I went way too far on the video—not being choosey enough with photos. I’ll try to edit more in the future, but today I was just playing to play.
Finally, I don’t have any Kodachrome film—it’s been taken away by digital photography. But, like Paul Simon, I do have a Nikon camera and I love to take a photograph! Video of that classic song.
