Sadly, I have joined the ranks of (insert plural pejorative noun of your choice) who carry a phone with them everywhere. To add to the insanity, the hubs put an SD card in the thing so I can take pictures at will with no concern about storage. Snap happy, that’s me. Back in the day, a roll of film did focus the mind. The usefulness/wisdom/point of taking all these pictures is debatable. And the hubs is no help. Take a picture, he says, You can put it on your blog. Sho ’nuff.
What is sure, my future as a nature photographer is nill.
Cases in point: Three pictures that barely capture the intended subject but continue to take up digitial space.
Exhibit A: Black squirrel at rest stop. Center, below the tree and above the side view mirror. Zooming in doesn’t help (any of these) as these are zoomed as far in as possible here; any more and the image falls apart.
Exhibit B: Deer in the clearing. Again, center of the image. At least I know how to center the subject in the frame.
Exhibit C: A twofer and probably the most worthwhile of the lot. A leaf suspended on a spider web so it looks to be hanging freely in the air.
Well, I’m glad I got that off my chest. Now, if I could only bring myself to get these off the SD card.
