Jazzy Beachy Sunday Morning
I was outbid on the Leica. It's o.k. It was silly. I have all the cameras I need. That was just. . . I don't know. . . desire. It would do a better job at what I want to do, but not that much better. It is simply--I think--that the Leica Ms look so cool. They shouldn't cost so much, but then again, I saw a Mazaratti and it was beautiful and shouldn't cost so much, either, but if you want one. . .
I took the picture above with the Nikon V1 I bought on eBay for under $200. All I'm doing is walking around and shooting inconspicuously from the hip. Do I need a $7,000 camera to do that?
I took this picture with my iPhone. Low-fi. I'm a low-fi guy anyway. Some weirdness in the picture, distortion, banding, but I think it is cool nonetheless. That is not really how the beach looks here (it is where I am now). It is not a bay but a straight out Atlantic Ocean beach. But it was practically free.
Breakfast is ready now--blueberry pancakes and mimosas. It is a jazzy, beachy Sunday morning. I am being called. C'est la vie.
