2 barrels and a sidewalk


Just because I felt like it*, I rented a camera for a week, and to feel like I was getting my money’s worth, I took it everywhere. I used to do that with my regular camera, but got out of the habit.

I went to the park (which you saw here and which you’ll see again tomorrow). There were lots of things to see, because I was looking on purpose for things to shoot. I used to that a lot, too, but got out of the habit.

So an unexpected consequence of the rented camera was a reminder that I’d gotten lazy, and was missing a lot of subjects as a result. That made a week’s rental an especially good bargain.

*or, to translate into Texan, I had a hankering.

  1. I’m thinking of renting in the fall, too. Something small and lightweight but flexible. Thinking about a Sony or a Fujifilm camera. It wouldn’t replace the Nikon bt augment it instead. Was your rental a Leica? What was your impression at the end of the rental period?


  2. We here in East Tennessee have hankerings. Texas and Tennessee have long connections . And hankerings.


  3. Your aficionados like me have a hankering for your photos that always seem to point at more than they show.
