Just Fun

So sometimes (read as “most of the time”) I take everything too seriously and get frustrated that I’m not taking the “perfect” shot.  Which leads me to feel like I suck at photography, which leeches all the fun out of taking pictures.  As it turns out all I needed was an evening out with a fun friend and my camera to turn it all around for me.  Meet Angela, who is telling her ghostly self off.

OK fine so long exposure night shots like this aren’t high art, or even middling art, but they are an absolute hoot to produce.  Angela helped remind why I got into the whole photography thing to begin with.  Because it is fun.

So we wandered Grant Park for awhile and made it down to the Agora installation (which I love more than “The Bean” a.k.a. Cloud Gate) and Angela decided to play a game of tag with herself.  Which you can do in a long exposure.  I was laughing like a giddy school girl through the whole thing.

Screw making “art”, I’m out to have some fun!
