A photo outing? Sure! I’m ready . . . well, except that I forgot to take my camera!
But, true to form, Mama Judie’s Magic Purse to the rescue. I always carry a small, but more-than-adequate, Canon SD1100 8MP camera in my purse for just such emergencies. Fortunately, I had just checked and recharged the three batteries a couple of weeks ago, so I was good to go. This is a great camera, and I was so happy to be able to pull it out for some well-deserved exercise.
I mounted the camera on my Canon monopod and whirled through Tombstone with that peculiar-looking apparatus, snapping away. After a couple of hours, I found myself enthralled with the new perspective that this combination brought to my eye. Having only a 3x zoom was so very different from what I have been accustomed to seeing through the viewfinder. Happily, a couple of hours into the shoot, as The Golden Hour settled down around us, the buildings and other objects came to life in a way that made my heart sing.
The picture above is making me a happy camper. Was there some sort of “camera soul” at work that pulled me to this spot as a consolation prize? As I look at it this morning, I see so many components that I didn’t see when releasing the shutter – all of which add to the overall appeal.
I started this post last night, well after midnight, but got too sleepy to finish. I woke up this morning with this image in my mind, and couldn’t wait to finish the post and get it published.
For those of you who might find this photo pleasing, would you be so kind as to tell me what you see that appeals to you?
