When I look back to when I was a little girl my favorite present to ask for was a camera. That is what I usually received. Back then the cameras used film that had to be loaded. Then after using up every shot the film was taken to get processed. The fun part was waiting to see how the photos turned out.
Throughout all these years my excitement with taking photos never waned. Now I have cameras that you load with a little disk that can hold thousands of photos that can be developed-some or all of them at one time. They can be sent away to be developed or printed on the home printer. Now the photos can be adjusted before printed. Years ago you actually received what you photographed. My phone also takes wonderful photos and I use it often.
There are some photos I like just the way I shoot them-in the raw with no adjustments. That way the people looking at them really get to see what I see instead of what I embellish.
No matter what the end result is I still love my cameras and my photos. I will just say I’m a Street Photographer.
The bird feeding is one of my many photos.
