On the way home...

When I took my photography course way back in 2009, the realization that you see differently through a camera lens really hit home.  You not only see differently; you feel more of what is around you, you catch things you normally would overlook, your perspective changes.  It’s a cool, beautiful thing.  The only problem is that it’s often difficult, if not impossible, to carry around a digital SLR – especially as you move through the work day.  So, in place of my D5000, I’ve been using a point & shoot and having a ball.  Granted, many of the pictures are or were crooked or blurred but it has certainly made the drive to and from work a lot more interesting and actually enjoyable.  Go figure!

Here are some shots of the view on my way from the office.  Maybe this will push me forward to tackle street photography, something I would love to be good at.     Why not try it - look through a camera lens and change your perspective.
