Has anyone ever asked you “Why don’t you take a picture, it will last longer”? Well, I’ve been asked that and discovered it to be true. Fortunately, I also discovered that I really like taking pictures. Who knew? today I rarely miss a day without taking anywhere from 1 to 1,000 photos. That statement might have you thinking “Wow, stop the bus” or in my case the #train. I’ve lived on an acreage outside of Saskatoon for 10-years and have to cross a CN mainline daily to get into Saskatoon. I decided to document my #train encounters on Instagram and I get lots of opportunities to use that hashtag. The 1,000 photo days occur when I am solely focused on photography, and sometimes puns.
Some people have suggested that I have a unique, alright weird, perspective on things. Just so happens that can come in handy for capturing interesting photographs. A friend and mentor, who I won’t mention by name, but his initials are Greg Johnson (A.K.A. the Tornado Hunter) encourages people to get out of the “No No Zone”, the eye-level view the way the world sees everything. I took the photo below, from my knees, with my #googlepixel3XL and the #sunrise in the background.
What have I learned?
