Fun with Photography

With as many pictures as I take, and as many places as I take my camera, it's no surprise that photography comes up as a topic of conversation. I was talking with a colleague recently and we were talking about the complexity and cost of taking *really* good pictures.

I remember reading somewhere that a good photographer could pick up a disposable camera and take *really* good pictures. To test this theory, I put away my big gun, specialty lenses and accessories and picked up on old friend, my D80. I put the kit lens on it. Yes, the kit lens and I challenged myself to spend the day at the beach with this camera and lens and see just what I could do with it

I was pretty pleased with the results.

That's Olivia, Samson's bff here east of the equator.

The day on the beach with my trusty old friend confirmed the sense of wonder I feel every time I pick up a camera and look through the lens.

Cheers.
