Photography has the ability to not only capture a moment in time, it also has the ability to soothe the soul. There were countless times when I was in a dark place in my life, where I thought that things would never get better. In those moments, I would grab a camera or three, jump in the car, drive as far as I could go, and take a picture of something spectacular. A waterfall in the Adirondacks, a sunrise in the Helderbergs, something, anything.
Some time ago, I was in one of those dark moods. It was a Sunday morning and I wasn’t in the best frame of mind. Still, I decided that a trip to Congress Park in Saratoga Springs would help make things better. I’ve done this in the past – there’s a flock of ducks that swim in the ponds and streams along Congress Park, and they don’t seem to mind being photographed.
First, I took some test shots with my BlackBerry PRIV camera phone. Have I mentioned how much I love my BlackBerry PRIV camera phone? No, I mean recently, have I mentioned it? 😀
