Take The Shot

As a hack photographer I am blessed to have a supportive wife in this my photo blogging journey. I am blessed by those who follow, like and comment. I am blessed with having several cameras I can choose from. I am blessed at how wonderful my point and shots are. But all that means nothing if I did not follow through and do one thing: Take the shot.

The two following photos are examples of what I am talking about. One, the Rose, I took the photo in the full on midday sun. No filters were involved in the taking of this photo. I have been told midday sun is bad. Me? I went with my default setting: Take the shot.

The Thistle was taking early morning but almost facing the sun. I took it with my pops FujiFilm S700 he is loaning me. I wanted to catch the dew on the Thistle but knew my pops camera does macro only so-so. Once again I went with my default: Take the shot.

We can always wait for perfect equipment, the perfect weather, setting and such but life is oh, so very short so just take the shot.

Author: The Jagged Man

I am a 57 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 26 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.
