NOW WITH PHOTOS!! I went to the Allan Gardens Conservatory and brought my own camera. People stared. What gives?
Lots of photographers get tired of the winter landscapes after a long winter and are dying to shoot something brighter. I decided that today was the day to head out to a botanical conservatory with the family. Once there I realized that other photographers had the same idea. Big lenses on big money digitals on tripods and cell phones. Without exception, EVERYONE noticed my pinhole blender 120. You’d think they’d never seen a cookie tin with black tape on a pan head tripod before. A handful of people were overcome with curiosity and asked. I smiled and explained. A few even expected instant results. “Can I See?” (-: Sure you can. Just maybe later.
