A camera can mean many things to many people.
For me, my camera is my…
Constant companion, always with me when I want to capture what’s before me in more than just my memory.
Magical tool for helping my eyes see more than they ever did before.
Gateway to creating beautiful art, and one that for me is far more accessible and usable than equivalent tools for drawing, or painting, or sculpture.
Memory maker, or perhaps memory enhancer, providing a back up to the family events I recall seeing with my own eyes, and to aid future reminiscences.
Calming influence, as when I’m out wandering with a camera, I’m nearly always in a peaceful state of mind.
Grown up toy, something I can play with and enjoy and not look to outsiders like the eight year old boy that wants to play with Lego and Star Wars figures in an adult body I actually am.
