New toys…

With photography as my favorite thing to do there are a lot of ways for me to spend money on my hobby. I tend to think that I take pictures for ‘free’ since I well remember the days of having your film developed for lots of $$$ and discovering that only a very few of your pictures actually turned out the way you wanted them to. And I have already upgraded my camera and bought several lenses beyond what I started with. And tripods, I’ve bought a few of those. New lenses need bigger and better bags to hold them, and I’m thinking that I ought to buy a wagon of sorts to carry this stuff with me so I can actually use it when I’m shooting. But the reality is that there is only one way to improve my photography and that’s by working on my technique and learning all that I can about how to do better. So I resist buying more stuff, usually. But the Lens Ball has been calling me for a while now. Something different to play with. So I gave in. I took it out at sunset last night, which meant I didn’t have to deal with it getting too hot to hold, a pitfall I’ve heard a lot about, and totally freaked out over the fear of dropping it. It’s heavier than I expected too. So I have only two pictures from last night, but it’s a little something different. Something to help me get through these days, one at a time…

Here’s one taken by the iPhone, and I flipped the image over. The image is upside-down in the lens as you view it to take a picture. Straiss your brain a little to work with it…
