Makes me what to sit with your cat and contemplate life. ????

Thank you so much. Me too. I cleaned the dock off from green algae today but I won't be able to use it for a while yet. Another round of snow is underway, they say.

Fabulous shot ! I discover that we use the same camera !
lindapersson May 19, 2017
Cool! Thank you. I used to use this camera. It's my spare nowadays. I bought a system camera and the quality is hard to beat - but not all times expensive is better. It's all about the composition.

Behind The Lens

This photo was taken a summer's morning on my own private dock by the lake Ballasjön in Sweden.
Early in the morning.
It's all natural light.
Nikon Coolpix S9100
It was just the moment. I saw my cat, Lady sit on the dock by herself looking out over the lake. It was just that special and I am so happy I had my pocket camera along.
No, none what so ever. SOOC.
In my camera bag
Nowadays I carry dslr cameras. Nikon D7200 and Nikon D750. My most used lenses are the 10-24, 24-70, 70-200 and 200-500mm. This range can handle just about any situation so this is what I bring to photoshoots. My most used every day lense is the nikkor 24-70mm. Very all round.
Just take the opportunity when it appears. And photography is not about the equipment, it's what you do with what you have!
