I remember my first pictures were made with a plastic camera. My dad was trying to teach me how to have the correct ratio on the sides and top and bottom. Then he move me to a real camara were I had to play with the lenses to get the focus correct. I hate it I could never made a clear picture. So I stick with the plastic camera until the digital camera appears. I think is much easier to get a nice looking picture using the digital cameras.However, a photo of something prettier. does not mean that the photo is going to have meaning. The meaning of a picture can be different for every one.
I love to take pictures, I will said is my hobby but I do not have the time to do it as often as I will now. I love to take photo of anything that caught my attention. It can be rainbow, a rainy day, a fog day, the moon, the sunrise, different shapes of the clouds, my silly little cousin trying new poses, my family in the holidays, and even common thing (everyday thing) that I think are meaningful in my life. In this days a selfie is something really common and we see it at least 3 to 5 times either on Facebook or Instagram.
I take picture of anything that spark my interesting, and sometimes when I am reviewing my picture to get print, the less expected picture is the one that have something different in it. If I am walking around and I see something interesting I snap a picture with my cell camera. I do not think, I am at the semiprofessional or professional level, but I do enjoy to take pictures. I may try to start waiting for the right moment to take the picture and try to play with the setting to get different types of picture. However, I do enjoy taking picture in black and white. There is something different with the black and white picture. I think that black and white picture takes the distraction of the color and makes you focus on the meaning of the photo or object itself.
I do not have to said which monument is this. I was walking throw the grass and I saw the sun begin the obelisk and I though mmmmh. I snap a picture of it. Let me know what you think?
This photo was taken last December, when my parents came to visit me to Virginia. We spend the day in Washington DC. This picture was taking from inside the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History. I took it because I though the view was beautiful
