Every day with a camera in your hand is a good day. Today I had my digital Canon SD880 with me. Sorry, no film camera today.
A Walk with My Wife
In the early evening on July 3, 2013, I suggested to my wife that we take a walk. After all, you can only watch so many old cop shows on NetFlix.
Let’s Go Down this Alley
We live in Chicago, IL USA on the northwest side.
We were walking along and I said, “Let’s go down this alley. I like this alley.” Honest to goodness, that’s what I said.
Half way down the alley I saw a man working on an old Chevrolet.
1961 Chevrolet Impala
I shouted politely: “1962?”
He shouted back politely: “Almost, it’s a 1961 Chevrolet Impala.”
We talked a bit. He was perhaps 15 years younger than me and I said I remembered the car. He said it was his “daily driver” for around town.
Can I Take Your Photo?
I asked if I could take his photo. He said yes right away. Nice guy.
One photo was enough, nothing fancy.
Happy 4th of July
It was the day before Independence Day and the man wished my wife and I a Happy 4th of July. We wished him well and kept on walking.
Don’t Just Sneak Photos, Try Asking for a Photo
You can always sneak a photo with a zoom lens. You can even snap a photo when no one’s looking.
Why not walk up to someone, say hello, and ask for their photo?
They might say yes. Thanks for visiting What is a Film Camera today.
