My Second Chance Journey With Dan ~ Interlude 212

When the journey seems endless, show me there’s a reason for perseverance.

  1. As this photo so beautifully shows… it is all about Perspective! 😉

    It can be our natural tendency to get stuck seeing things in a certain way and we forget that there are many different, but equally valid, ways of looking at something. We can ‘zoom in’ and focus on fine detail – or we can pull back and see the big(ger) picture! 🙂

    Photography has taught me a lot. 🙂 ( well – helps me remember what i knew but was forgetting sometimes!)

    Keep on taking those photos! 🙂

  2. One thing I find fascinating (and sometimes frustrating) is that there are many times when the camera simply cannot capture what the eye sees. But, the challenge keeps me going.

    Thank you for your encouragement. It really means the world to me!

  3. Our eyes are miracles of Nature (some might say ‘Evolution’ 😉 ) Our man-made cameras are doing their best to catch up but as we both recognise, sometimes don’t always measure up. (On the other hand i have seen things caught by my camera when editing on my computer that my eyes never noticed, so i guess things balance out a bit?) 😉

    Another thing is that sometimes what we see with the eyes is ‘interfered with’ or added to by the brain and perhaps the camera can give a less ‘adulterated’ version of what is really there. Our emotions affect our vision (and ever other sense also).

    I find it a challenge to understand and use all the many many features of my Nikon – one I am unsure i will ever master fully – but it does add some interesting elements to my life and gives pleasure in addition to the frustration! 😉

    Teaching me some ‘self-control’ is but one more benefit i’m learning through Photography! 😉

    Hope it’s a good week for you. 🙂

    • I agree with your assessment of the limitations of both eye and camera. I’ll never fully understand my Canon, and unfortunately, it’s looking like I have to save up for a new one. Lately, mine puts a line a little left of center on each photograph, depending on the light. I can erase it post-production, but it’s a bit of a pain. I thought the trick might be to buy a mirrorless camera until I saw the prices. Looks like I’ll have to do some extra photo editing until I hit the lottery. 🙂 I hope your week is fabulous. Thank you again!

      • Sorry to hear about the Canon. 😦

        I suppose the warrantee has expired?

        It sounds like it may be a sensor issue or some other hardware fault – good luck withthe editing. 🙂

  4. Warranty is long gone. I’ve enjoyed this particular camera since 2011, and it has gone on many trips with me. I checked it through on a trip to Canada in October 2017 and that’s when the issues first started to occur. Not sure if it was damaged in transit or if it was coincidental, but for now there’s a solution (editing). 🙂
