As you know, I started taking pictures when I finally remembered my cell phone, which I always carry with me, has a camera. Duh! So all the pictures I’ve taken to now have been taken with my cell phone.
Yesterday, I took a baby step and got an actual camera! Nothing special or expensive. Just something that has a zoom lens. I’m sure it has other features as well, I’m just not there yet.
This morning when I was out with Mickey and Samson (Samson’s staying with us for a few days while his dad’s away), I took out my new camera and snapped some pictures.
I love the morning light as it filters through the leaves of the trees. This is what I saw as I was coming through the door of my building. For weeks, I’ve been trying to take a picture of the tree on the Broadway Mall down the street. I kept seeing the brilliant reds in the morning and afternoon light and was frustrated by my inability to capture the exquisite colors as the light danced through the leaves on the tree. I’m not sure I’ve yet been successful…thanks to the zoom lens, however, the camera is coming closer to seeing what my eyes see. And, sometimes, it sees stuff I don’t notice.
