Close-up…

I’m on a little bit of a personal mission at the moment. I’m trying to keep my point and shoot handy at all times. I’m feeling the desire to shoot more and consequently the p&s is living in my bag these days.

I’m remembering that it’s about capturing the moment, rather than creating the moment. I’m remembering that 100 years ago photographers used what they had to take the shot.

So, tonight. I’m on the lawn at my parents house. I look over and see my boys under the tulip tree. I reach into the pocket and take the shot. Happy.

I get home and zoom in. And I’m happier.  It really does capture them – the wearisome older brother who really does love the brat, even if he sometimes says he doesn’t. And the future class clown, who will undoubtedly ruin a few grade photos before he’s done.

And then there’s this one. Shootin’ from the hip. And I quite like it.
