a little over a year ago i invested in a nice camera, with high hopes of becoming something of a photographer. as it turns out, i’m terrified of taking photos in front of other people…sooo, as you can imagine, that plan is going really well.
anyway. i packed my camera for europe, determined to get some shots i was happy with over the course of my trip…people or no people! i was off to a great start when i realized in the cab on my way to the airport that i had left my memory cards at home on my desk.
luckily, the airport is teaming with stores that carry memory cards for forgetful travelers such as myself. i tracked one down and made my way up to the checkout to ask where said memory cards were located. the lovely gentleman in front of me in line informed me that he had purchased the wrong memory card for his GoPro camera, and if it worked for my camera, i was welcome to have it.
score! sometimes people are really awesome.
fast forward a few weeks. roughly one thousand images from my ‘fancy’ camera sitting in lightroom. and perhaps a handful that i am really, truly happy with.
my favorite shot of the trip was actualy taken with my iphone. a zoomed in, symmetrical pov of the eiffel tower. not your typical take on the iron lady, but very me. i sent the file off last night to be blown up, printed and framed.
i cannot wait to get this up on my wall.
