It is with great sadness that I report that my camera is at Nikon for repair (nothing major, just me being picky about dust underneath the LCD and focusing screen). Before I sent the camera in, I managed to take one last beach trip over this past weekend where the temperature reached the high 70s. It was so incredibly nice that I spent most of the time just taking it all in. In between tanning I managed to take a few interesting shots of perhaps my favorite bridge which leads from Duxbury "mainland" to a little peninsula that is Duxbury beach. Only Duxbury residents are allowed to cross the bridge with their car and park it by the beach. Us po' folk who don't live in Duxbury must walk the mile or so that it spans in order to reach this holy grail of beaches. But as with most things in life, the journey is half the fun. This day was no exception and so without further adieu, here's to the journey.
What is a destination without the journey that leads the way? What is a marathon without the 26.2 miles of pain and sweat - what worth do those final tears of victory hold if they are cried from a destination which is no different than its origin. If helicopters could take climbers to the peak of Mount Everest, would they conquer the mountain just the same? If The Discovery Channel aired the climb, would you sit on your couch and watch instead? There are too many shortcuts in life and not enough savoring of the roads less traveled by. Lingering by the shore has given way to running through the mall in search of the latest swim wear complete with a "free gift" (emphasis always on free) of wasted time. Those who manage to buy something they actually like rather than what they have been convinced to like by magazines, TV, and the like, are one step ahead. Those who walk in the mall instead of run are two steps ahead. And those who go to the beach instead of the mall, with a 5-year old t-shirt and shoes that are falling apart, don't count their steps because, well, it's hard when you have to stop every few feet to empty the sand from your shoes. My wish for all of you is that you always find sand in your shoes, for it will make the journey much more enjoyable, and the arrival so much sweeter.
Point and Shoot
Some of you are aware that my LCD screen decided to go white a few weeks ago, and after a very brief stay at Nikon rehab with the prognosis being that the repair would cost more than a new camera, it has returned home. Having only used the bottom-of-the-line Coolpix (and happy with it), I find myself in the position of trying to determine whether I should just replace it or upgrade, and if the latter, to what. I still haven't decided.
While this very haphazard investigation has proceeded, I have continued to take pictures using my disabled camera, thus giving true definition to the term "point and shoot" since I have no definite idea of what I'm shooting...or even precisely where I'm pointing. The experience is much akin to being blind, especially in macro mode which I can find only by recalling the sequence and sound made when I push the buttons...remember, no screen at all. Fortunately, that's the only function of the camera I ever used anyway aside from zoom which is also now a guess based on duration of sound. Watching me, one might find it odd indeed to see me with my ear pressed against the camera as opposed to my eye.
Actually, it's been somewhat interesting. I can now look around and enjoy the scenery without having to worry about focusing my attention on the subject actually being photographed. Somewhat unique to photography I would guess. Plus, it's a bit more exciting to see what in the world might pop up when I upload the images to the computer. While 90% of the images resemble nothing much at all, those, of course, are the ones that lend themselves quite well to creative processing. ;-) Remarkably, some do turn out, actually providing a greater sense of pride in the achievement. Here, a Yellow-Legged or Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum) accomodates the crippled but unyielding photographer.
Sometimes we just have to make do, nay?
