Following Boys with Big Cameras

February 26:

Jimmy and Wirfs decided to explore downtown with their large equipment.  I just tagged along and soon discovered that they wanted to use me as their subject.

Once again, I was not prepared.

For some reason, I have no desire to own my own SLR... I guess the multiple features and functions overwhelm me when all I want to do is capture the moment because it goes away.

Eventually or probably now, they have cameras close to SLR quality and that's good enough for me.  Plus I think it's such a waste for me to possess something so expensive and not use it to it's full potential.

Please see Jimmy's finished products HERE and HERE.

I like this one because it looks like I'm in Vietnam again.

Wirfs!  Where are yours?


Afterward, we got to visit Wirf's humble abode where he showed pictures and told stories of past loves and travel adventures.  It's interesting how much I don't know about my friends.  For the 20 minutes that I was in his bedroom listening to him talk, excited to have guests over, I had learned more about him than the months I've known him while he attended my parties.

That's what I need to do more of... actually follow through with people I meet.  (Make new friends and connections.)  I may know a lot of people... but in general it's hard to really get to know them.
