Today I took the plunge and bought a camera (digital) for the first time in my life. The only other time I was able to take pictures for myself was back in pre-adolescence, when my mother gave me her old 110 telephoto – that soon afterward broke. I have never been a big fan of photography, preferring to record images in my head than transfer them to film. But one interesting point was made in a website I found: about the fact that looking for a good picture can sensitize you to the aesthetics of your environment, just as in the difference between hearing good music, and listening to it to find its unique beauty. We’ll see if that comes true. Until then, one of my first pictures: a long-time programming and traveling pal, Pat the Bunny.
