I am not a compulsive person, nor do I tend to jump up and out of my seat because I get a good feeling. However this is precisely what I experienced recently.
Most of the photo’s that I have been posting recently have been shot on my point and shoot Nikon1 J2. While this is a perfectly good camera, I forgot what it was like to carry around my SLR and take some really good photos, change the settings to suit the shot and really create what I wanted. The SLR also allows so much more creativity in the edit, I love a good edit almost as much as a perfect unedited picture.
I was attempting to write this very blog post, Daily Photo Challenge #40 when I experienced something really awesome recently. I felt as though I was being told to take out my SLR, so I did as I was told. I then, just so happened to look out of the window to find golden hour had hit and before I knew what I was doing I was standing. I do not exaggerate when I say that without knowing what to expect or what I was looking for I was out of the house and walking.
I took the best shots I have taken in ages and while those wait for you and you’ll see them soon, I took this shot on my compulsive little walk and wanted to share it with you. Many to come…
If you ever get the irresistible urge to do something, do it… please.
Remember, work hard, have fun, make a difference!
