There was a time when I thought there was nothing more annoying than someone with a camera slung around their neck photographing everything that crossed their vision. Till Sarah Palin came along to let me know what annoying really is, and digress from the topic in my usual way.
So, back to the topic of photographers and all things related. On my best days AND with the best camera and resources I admit to being a crap photographer *Enlightenment Alert! It may come as a surprise to you but there are faint traces of humility still holding on to my supercilious soul*
Yes, I can do the people-standing-in-front-of-monuments type of touristy shots brilliantly! Just between you and me, I have even managed to make scary people look, well, less scary by photographing them with shadows almost covering them AND have been applauded for the results *now you know why it’s so damn difficult to retain the humility bit* But when it comes to anything else I am a complete klutz; a sunset shot ends up looking like paint spilled over a canvas, for instance.
So, on a recent holiday, when I managed to click a few pics that stunned me into 5 whole minute of silence *a personal best/record* I had to share them with you.
Before my swollen head bursts open, I’ll admit to realizing that there are times when Mother Nature, in all her spectacular glory, agrees to pose patiently so that self-admitted klutzes can shoot her and have their 5 minutes of stunned silence!;)
