    Photo From the Neighborhood

    I have no idea who took this photo, but I grew up a block away from Moon Street...

    Well you can't beat that
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Talk about being in the right place at the right time and also having the forethought to have a camera at hand.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    When you are a real camera nut, that kind of pic is not a coincidence. I remember making a trip 4 times to a neighboring city to take pictures of the railroad tracks as they curved under an over pass and trailed off into the sunset. I knew the time of day that the sun would reflect off of the rails in the way I wanted. However, due to local clouds at that time of day; no pic. However, due to no train on those tracks for quite a while, rust on the rails ruined the reflection I wanted; no pic. However due to moisture on the tracks; no pic. Then finally, before the season changed enough to put the sun in the wrong place at 4:20 pm I got my pic.

    It won top award in a photo contest.

    Then there was the time I had a pic of tall eucalyptus trees near a path with someone on the path. It was too late in the day for the light I wanted. Went back to get the pic and the eucalyptus trees were all cut down. Etc!

    Enjoy,

    When you are a real camera nut you know your camera so well you can change the f-stops, shutter speed, etc. in a flash without even looking at the camera. I don't know about today, but back when I was a nut all photojournalists, press photogs, and similar had that ability. The new cameras have a lot of "brains." You might not get the perfect pic; but you will get a quick very usable pic.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
