When i was shooting some photos earlier this evening, a lady walked by and as she passed me she asked, "Are you taking a photo? How can you shoot when it's so dark?" I said there's light here and I'm shooting with a long exposure. She looked at me suspiciously. I asked, "Would you like to see what I shot?" She said, "Yes."
I showed he the photo I had just shot and she said, "That's amazing. I didn't know you could do that." The she asked, "What kind of camera is that?" I said, "It's a Nikon."
She replied, "That's a really good camera." Then she walked on.
It was funny. No acknowledgement of my role in creating the photograph. To her it was all the camera, I was just a person pushing a button.
The lack of technical knowledge and common sense of the government is frightening. Since they don't have a clue and haven't bought one yet. Maybe they could try rent-to-own a clue. [shakes my head in frustration]
