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!
