It's the Camera

How many times have you heard your work described as being good or some other positive metaphor with the added comment that "it's good CUZ... they have a great camera."

I believe it is the individual using whatever camera that achieves great results. I know some photographers that use 'point and shoot' (compact) cameras that produce great work. They have an artistic eye and understand how to get the best out of their camera.

Whatever camera you are using, make an effort to learn everything about your camera.  I am positive you will be pleased.

Surfs Up

DOL-A-0126
Lake Ontario

Something I've never tried, but it seems to be an activity that is becoming more and more popular. The young lady in the above photo certainly appears to be healthy and strong. Nevertheless, she did get knocked off a few times while I watched her battle the incoming surf.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Columbus Day!

Northern Mockingbird

It seems I only see these gorgeous birds during autumn.

Happy Thanksgiving!

P.S.  My knee is still sore, but on the mend.  Thank you for all your well-wishes!
