Garden of Ideas

September 9, 2017

Returning to Garden of Ideas today, one of my favorite local places, I am amazed how easy it feels to become completely absorbed by photography. With my Nikon D7200 camera, and Tamron 90mm lens, almost everywhere I turn, something calls out for it's photograph to be taken. This particular lens, I think, has a very special quality in that it helps you to really see things that ordinarily pass you by. I look through the viewfinder, focus, and then all of sudden I find myself saying, "Oh, I didn't realize that was there!" Then I shift the focus, and because I am either inches or feet away, sometimes the lens pulls me to something I did not intend, and I find myself saying again, "I didn't realize that was there!". 

 

My teacher John Diamond,  M.D., a pioneer in modern photography, says that for him photography is seeing beyond the obvious. It is easy to see the beauty in a sunset, in a mountain, but to see the beauty in the little things, like a blade of grass, that is truly special. And I think this lovely Tamron 90mm lens on the Nikon D7200 can help the photographer to do this!
