The weather has cleared and I have had a chance to test quite a few cameras recently. My table has about six, and there are others lying around somewhere. Cameras are seeping out of my nooks and crannies. I have found a couple that I really love and feel eager to just stick with these ones. So I seem to be speeding through the not-so-great-but-worth-a-try ones.
Recently I read a great blog post about camera blogs and I realised if I post all the cameras I have tested recently at once then the few loyal readers I have might feel a little overwhelmed. Plus I have noticed when I do post a lot at once I get bored with typing or writing and turn into a ‘just get through it’ mode, there is more tech and less heart. But if I don’t write about them then I forget what I was feeling or thinking about while using the camera. And then it dawned on me…drafts, drafts. You can write the post, but not publish it…durh, simple.
It is strange to be thinking about readers. My reason for making this blog was for me, not readers. It was a way to remember the different cameras I tried, like a scrapbook or virtual photo album. It was also a way to improve my knowledge and skill, and to avoid flooding my Facebook feed with photos. Finally, it was a way to say what I wanted to say without driving all my none-camera-loving friends nuts..which I still do. And then came readers. Golly, people are reading what I write, how weird is that?
Gosh…better add a photo…Here readers, a present…me in an inflatable dinosaur on the Tokyo Subway….Halloween, ‘nough said.
