I received an email from a friend today who called me a lazy photographer. Well, OK, so he wasn’t really a friend. And he didn’t actually call me by name. But he might as well have. See, I subscribe to a newsletter from Digital Photography School. They emailed me an article titled “6 Signs That You May be a Lazy Photographer” written by John Davenport. Why he would not capitalize ‘be’ and ‘a’ is beyond me. But his “Sign #3 – You’re full of excuses” states: “Everything from sunrise being too early, to the weather being too cold, to your tripod being too heavy sets you back from someone who’s willing to go the extra mile to make the shot. Stop making excuses and get out and make photos instead.” Just so you know, I have gone out several times before dawn to photograph the rising sun. I have, also, never complained of it being too cold- I can handle the cold. In fact I love the cold. It’s the heat I can’t stand. Must be the Latin blood but I sweat like a stuffed pig (I know, a not very attractive image). And my tripod is not a Manfrotto but it is not too heavy for my wife to carry. She’s a good woman. I think I’ll keep her. As long as she’ll have me!
