I’ve begun taking photographs.
…Wait. Arg. I’m taking pictures, but I never liked the generic feeling of that term. But no film is involved, so it’s not really a photograph, is it?
Anyvay. I’m taking pictures, I guess, with my Kodak DC-5000. It’s a decent digital camera; 2 megapixels and a 3x zoom, but the picture quality just isn’t as crisp as I’d like.
But I’ve begun taking my camera around with me everywhere, with the intention of photographing anything that looks interesting. I took it out with me the other day when I wandered around Old Town Alexandria, and plan to start posting the pictures here.
I’ve found that I pay closer attention to my environment when I have a camera with me. I don’t get distracted by my own thoughts; I see my world.
