Downtown Construction

Downtown Construction, originally uploaded by David A G Wilson.

I always have a camera somewhere close by. While I still miss quite a few photo opportunities (driving past some fleeting view on the way to work in the car, for example), I’ve also managed to put my point-and-shoot to good use on many occasions when I’ve had a small amount of time free and interesting light to play with. Take, for example, this shot.

Last Friday, I was early for a meeting in downtown Austin so went for a stroll with the trusty Canon G9. The light was tricky – haze and low cloud – but I managed to get several shots that I am happy with including this one and another that appears over on my photoblog. Had I not had a camera in the car, I would have been reduced to using my iPhone or merely being unable to record these images.

Looking back at my most popular photos, quite a few were taken on the spur-of-the-moment using whichever pocket-sized camera I happened to have around. Remember, it’s not the camera that makes a good image, it’s you being in the right place at the right time with a camera.
