This image flashed across my monitor today as part of my screensaver. I had not seen it in a while, since it was taken on November 11, 2004. The image made me smile at a moment that I needed it, a harried 45 minutes where I could not find my favorite lens.
A lens that has taken just under 30% of my 50,000 digital photos that I have taken that are in my database.
A lens, that if I had to replace it, would cost me a bicycle.
And I don’t buy cheap bicycles.
Long story made longer, the lens was right where I left it, although it had slipped behind a flap in my camera bag that never gets moved.
Except once recently.
I’m still trying to work on detaching from objects, but for something that has brought me so much enjoyment…
So back to November 11, 2004.
The progression of expressions makes me smile.
And no, this was not an image taken with my favorite lens.
Some train station on the Tokaido line, Tokyo, Japan.
