Day 43 - Homage
The history of cameras is fascinating. Once, when I was in high school, I visited a museum and saw the first photograph ever taken. You could barely tell the scene displayed was from life and not some abstract dream, but nevertheless, it set itself in history and innovation grew quickly. The search for better image quality, the search for color, the application of art techniques such as composition and lighting, all of these things helped progressed photography.
In this day and age, I carry my DSLR for which I have four memory cards that can hold 1,500 images each. The Canon AE-1 is just one film camera from a long line of inventions and innovations to bring us where we are today, and one day, a hipster, proud of his Nikon DSLR will be taking a photo of my camera, talking about how much simpler things were back then.
I will be leaving on Saturday morning for Hawaii and will not return until a week later, during that time I will be unable to post, but I certainly will be photographing!
