Taking photos and flooding our favourite social media is so easy with the camera on our mobile devices. But, what if I restrain myself by sharing only one photo a day? What benefit(s) would that be? That is what I want to find out.
I like taking photos. I take photos every day. Whatever catches my attention. I have no specific preference as to the type of photography. If there is, I gravitate more towards landscape and travel photography.
I don’t have a favourite camera. Ok, I do have two mirrorless Sony cameras – one full frame and the other a crop sensor. I also carry a mobile phone/camera. I do believe, however, that the best camera is the one that happens to be in my hand when I want to take a photo.
A case in point is this shot I took from inside the plane as we were about to land at the Toronto Pearson International Airport. Our catholic parish of St. Josephine Bakhita is currently constructing a church in north-west Mississauga. We are a flight path and I quite anticipated that there is a great chance I will be able to see our project from the plane. But even in that state of anticipation, I forgot to bring out my mirrorless camera, which I could have easily been able to access considering that my bag was just under the seat in front of me. What I had in my hand was my mobile phone. To cut the story short, here is what I was able to take.
The church under construction can be seen towards the left side of the photo, coloured yellow (because the brick walls have not yet been installed), and a protected woodlot behind it.
In the past, I used to travel with two camera bodies and several lenses. Lately, with all the airline weight restrictions, I am becoming more intentional with what I put in my bag.
I am just a hobbyist. I am not a professional photographer. I rarely sell my photographs. I just like to share my explorations and my passion.
