I’ve got the shutterbug

Lissa and I took our Canon SLR to Paris and took some photos. I’m hoping that there are some interesting shots that I can post next week. I would love to get a digital camera and be able to experiment more and possibly create a photoblog on Bombippy.

In the meantime, I’ve been researching digital cameras, visiting way too many photoblogs and taking more pictures than usual. I woke up at 5:30 AM this morning so that I could watch the sun rise over Lake Ontario from the Scarborough Bluffs and take some photos.

The light is incredible at this time of day and makes everything look interesting, including the guy that was driving his Hummer like a maniac across the public beach at Bluffers Park. He was a little startled when he saw me with my camera and took off.

It’s funny how you start to look at the world differently when you have a shutterbug. I’m constantly looking for something that would make an interesting photo—landscapes, light, clouds, buildings. Everything starts to look interesting and if it doesn’t I try to look at it in a way that I haven’t before.

I’ve been inspired by the photos at Fearfully Human and A Walk Through Durham Township. Hopefully in the next little while I will find the time to continue taking pictures and share the decent ones with the rest of you.
