Tonight I decided that even though Apple has never put much thought into the development of their iPhone cameras I still appreciate that the camera is there. I have been trying to keep at least one of my Canon digital cameras with me whenever I leave the house. I mean unless there is some extreme reason that I shouldn’t bring a camera I really have no excuse. I even have a “beach” camera thanks to the lasting impression a professional camera repair guy made when he spoke about the damage beach sand can inflict on your gear all those years ago in Walt Silver’s color slide class at SVA.
I try not to be a tourist, or rely on the law of large numbers, by photographing everything & anything. I know that at some point I will see something I need to capture, so I keep my camera with me. Well I try to remember to keep it with me.
All day today I had my camera. We never made it to the beach, because it rained pretty hard most of the day. I took a few shots of the kids at the house. I even took it with me when I went shopping. I didn’t take it with me when I ran out to Rite Aid with the girls tonight though. The strange things is when I pulled over to get this shot I thought I had it with me! While I still wish my Canon was with me I am grateful I had my iPhone, because honestly 34 (yikes!) years ago I would have missed the shot completely.
So in awe of this cast. I have so many images to edit from this event & the week. My schedule is so messed up though. I caught a nasty fever virus right after the concert & we ended up leaving Boston early. Add in getting bursitis in my hip from sleeping with a 103 degree fever on 2 seats with a metal bar between them on the Amtrak train back home while on chemo really messed me up. I guess I have some issues!
In any event this was the second time I was able to spend time with Cherish the Ladies. Both times were fantastic for different reasons. The 1st time my oldest daughter was invited to dance with the cast at a concert in Philadelphia. The photo above is, of course, from the Worlds in Boston. Both times the show was fantastic.
