Photographer Caught Naked
Well not quite! The standing joke with my kids is "Dad is naked without a camera" and yesterday was a good example.
I was on my way out of the door. The camera bag was loaded; my man bag (with G10 & iPhone) was loaded. I needed to get something form the studio and upon my return a Great Spotted Woodpecker was pecking away on the trunk of the apple tree in the garden next door. And where were my bl**dy cameras, in the bl**dy car! By the time I'd hunted out my old Fuji 9500s, batteries and a CF card the damn thing had flown way.
A missed opportunity.
The view from my studio window. The arrow shows where the woodpecker was from the wide end
(28 mm equiv. on 35 mm full-frame) of the Fuji Finepix 9500s!
Now can you see why I always say to aspiring photographers to always have a camera with you, as you'll never know when you'll need it. Needless to say, the Fuji Finepix 9500s is loaded and sitting next to me ready for action.
