Papa’s Shoes

 

As a child, I found my grandfather’s shoes always told wonderful stories.

Photography’s Hidden Costs

Nikon D300, ISO 320, f/8 at 1/640 sec

It really doesn’t bother me that people look at me strangely when I suddenly lay down on my stomach on a public sidewalk to be able to get the angle I want for a photograph. When you’re serious about photography, you do what you’ve got to do to get the shot. We’ll ruin shoes, clothing, withstand inclement weather, get up at ridiculous hours, drive for miles, and even sit patiently waiting in the hope some perfect moment occurs.

Sometimes it’s worth it, sometimes you go home disappointed. But you keep doing it because you love it.

So here’s a plea for some honest feedback:
Today’s shot came at the cost of a close encounter between well-camouflaged, fresh, organic, canine variety fertilizer and my favorite comfortable shirt.

Was it worth it?
