Whining - only a little though
You know what really gets me? What makes me laugh, but with mild frustration? Well, I'll tell you. It bugs the fa-zizzle out of me when someone looks at my pictures and says, "Your camera takes good pictures."
I want to respond, "Actually, I take good pictures. But, thank you." Too tacky, I know. So I just let it go. I smile uncomfortably and wonder what to say. The good camera helps, of course it does. But, the best camera in the world can't create composition or knowing just which moment to capture. That, my friends, is all up to the photographer. If you doubt it, visit my friend Susan, who has a very simple camera.
How should I respond to comments like that? Come on. Let me have it. Tell me what you think please.
