Trading headphones for lenses

arrow roadAfter more than two years of being all about radio, I’m trying my hand at something different with photography as the last course of my degree (whaat?!).

I’ve wanted to get behind the lens for a while, but was still surprised by how much I am enjoying it. That is, once I got over the initial amazed bewilderment that something with lots of buttons can give you.

Now that The Camera and I are better acquainted, I’m really enjoying looking at life through the four corners of a rectangle. It’s a far more palpable and instinctual form of documentation than sticking a recorder in someone’s face. You do get in the weirdest positions and can look rather creepy at times (telephoto stalker lens, anyone?) but that’s its own kind of fun.
