With all of this staying home stuff, I’ve had some extra time to start looking through some of my older images. This was taken more than a few years ago (2007) when I was contemplating whether I wanted to venture into digital photography. Yes, I can hardly believe that something that I love now was met with having to be dragged… kicking and screaming into the new age. I so loved my Minolta SRT101 at the time, which by the way I still have keeping company on the shelf. You know just in case I may need again someday. So being cautious about my investment, I bought an inexpensive FinePix A340 just to give it a go. By now, I had almost forgotten about this camera until I pulled up the file information on my computer linked to this image.
This jellyfish was shot on a quick road trip stop at the Atlanta Aquarium. I was greatly surprised by this image that was captured. Just proof that some fun things can happen even when you are first learning and really don’t know what you are doing. That is not to say that I have stopped learning as that will never happen. So keep on shooting and happy exploring, but with camera in hand.
