Lookin sorta sharp
I remember reading this article by Ken Rockwell, “Why Your Camera Does Not Matter” and thinking there was some truth to it.
I should take a moment and mention that going without a camera for 25 some odd days was both nice and sad. It was nice to just be in the moment and not worry if I brought along the heavy beast that was my old camera.
It was nice to find new ways to remember things. I paid attention to details. I picked up a pencil more often and used paper. It was refreshing.
At the same time though, my journaling slowed down. Taking photos has been a great and easy way for me to remember and record the day. I tend to limit how much time I spend writing an entry. Having a set of photos to cull from was a great cue.
Aside from all that, I think I’m getting the hang of this new device. I have to be more patient and take time to make sure the settings are adequate. My list of complaints is short, but I can satiate this desire to record life much easier. And this is good.
