A photograph taken from today. Getting ready for the Riverdale Art Walk.

Up until this point I have been taking photographs with my iphone.   It is truly unbelievable what I’ve been able to do with a decent camera.   I don’t want to get into the whole thing about the camera in particular but it’s been amazing going around the city with it today.    Another observation- since taking this camera out on the town, it has attracted a whole new set of conversations with people I would otherwise never have talked to.   People want to talk to me about my camera.   Interesting.   Thing is, they all know much more about this camera than I do because up until last week I had no idea of it’s existence.  Either way, it’s a complete treat to have it and I cannot wait to see all the cool things I can do with it.   I took almost 900 pictures in the rain today and was able to get 20 decent images to use for paintings.   I have decided to use them as the focus for the paintings in the Riverdale Art Walk for June 6th and 7th in a couple of months from now.     The next couple of blogs will be about some of the paintings I will be creating over the next few weeks.   I cannot wait!!
