So I picked up this new camera strap. Basically it’s like a strap holster. The camera bobs at my hip until I see something, and then voila, with a quick grasp and click, a photo has been created. For a long time I’ve gone no-strap, totally hand held. But that’s a bit of a nuisance unless I’m out to photograph.
So now, camera eternally at my side (whether commuting, wandering, etc), the ease of use facilitates more photographic play. So many sights don’t quite warrant taking off the backpack, opening it up, digging around, finding the camera, turning it on, metering the light, etc… But those same views are completely accessible if the extent of my effort is just to reach down and lift up.
And so this is the result. Walking out of the subway, looking for a bathroom (hey Boston, where’s the public bathrooms? Seriously. If Shanghai can do it, Boston can do it), I’m struck by this “gotta shoot this” moment, and voila, the camera abides.
