My inner Photographer

eat your heart out
Originally uploaded by MaMa Ocean

Since adding a Flickr account to my already enormous online portfolio I've discovered I'm not at all what one would call a "photographer." I'm more of a bumlbling idiot with a camera in my hand. After years of being on the other side of the camera, I'm finding it a little strange to adjust to being behind the lens. I mean, I have always like having my picture taken and think it odd that others don't share that feeling. But alas, today I had the most uncooperative subject!

This afternoon my dad came down to the beach with this ridiculously large piece of karpuzi (watermelon) for Zhaina and all I wanted to do was snap a cute shot of her eating it but every time I lifted the camera she turned around! I'd have to pretend I was walking away and then run around her really fast and click! After a few moments I was able to get this shot, but not without the lack of trying.

But I have high hopes for my future photos and am bound and determined to let my inner Photographer out! (subjects willing).


  1. Maybe you would have had better luck if you'd given Z the camera and you the karpuzi !!
