Rainy Day Goodness

Edge of pond — Poolesville, Maryland

I don’t normally like going on extended walks outside on rainy days, but took exception on this occasion and found a beautiful scene worth recording. And? I think it’s not too bad for an iPhone shot. One thing I’ve found over the years… digital imaging technology sure has advanced since the dawn of this century.

I was brought up on film; I had my first Kodak box camera when I was just a kid, graduated to 35mm when I was in high school back in the 1970’s, stayed with that through college, and kept with it professionally through several jobs in the creative field — which I exited in the early 1990’s. But I still shot with film for years, until finally seeing digital images that appeared cleaner than film for the first time back in 2000.

Then came a rapid succession of digital cameras over the past 20-years — Canon, Fujifilm, Olympus, Leica, and culminating with several models from Sony.

As of this writing, I still have a full-frame Sony camera, but I rarely use it — preferring instead to shoot with the camera included with my mobile phone. It’s true that the best camera is the one that you always have with you, and with the incredible computational power in the smart phones of today, beautiful images are well within the reach of everyone.
