oemal is a Creative Traveling De-Clutterer
I bought my dSLR about 2.5 years ago. It’s probably not fair to compare it to the 2.5 years prior to that in shooting with my regular SLR because (a) film costs money and (b) I was in grad school, but I really do take a lot of pictures of things I want to take pictures of. I was recently out of town and snapped hundreds of shots. I enjoy photo editing a lot more with digital, too. I know the contact sheet is a special thing, but I sure do love seeing files bigger than an itty bitty thumbnail first!
All in all, I think I’ve reconnected well with my old college major, but in a visual diary sort of way. I make pictures I want, and I make them pretty well. I bring my camera with me most places (and when I don’t, I have my phone). I’m pretty pleased with coming around on this goal. Done!
