Vacation

Tomorrow, my daughter and I head off to a friend’s place for a week. It’s something we do every year–hang out, play games, have fun. This year’ll be much the same, but we might toss a road-trip or two into the mix. We’ll be only a few minutes drive from a relatively large city (well, New Hampshire’s largest, anyway), and I’d love to run around it with my camera.

Speaking of cameras, here’s a photograph I posted recently over on Instagram…

I’ve been using Instagram a lot lately, mostly because I’ve been really using my shitty, smartphone camera a lot. In fact, it’s kind of become my favorite way to shoot. Part of that’s down to convenience–it’s always with me, fast to use, and doesn’t attract the attention that my “real” camera does.

Mostly, though, I’ve found that I can actually take a pretty good shot with it, if I pay attention. It doesn’t work for everything I want to do, but it does for enough that I find myself shooting most every day.

 

And on that note, I’m off.
