(That Thing I Do)

Simple Camera, Fancy Camera

It’s almost hypocritical how I always tell people good photographs are not born of expensive gear. Even the humblest camera is capable of taking a good picture. Yet I walk around with a big clunky camera with all the bells and whistles, thinking about buying lenses I can’t afford.

It’s sort of like how fried rice is capable of making a good meal, but I still walk around thinking about having a steak sometimes.

It’s not always about good and bad, fancy and simple, expensive and cheap. Just as how the right meal is only right when it fits the appetite and the right mood, the right picture is only right taken with the right camera and the right lenses.

It’s a paradox of photography.
