Noticed this gentleman while waiting for Air show to begin… and started a process of thinking.
It was humid and he was carrying one kid on his shoulders, waiving hand to his disoriented wife and another kid, looking for place from where they can watch the show comfortably, more than the show, he would have been worried about comfort of family. Job related stress must be there somewhere in back of his mind.
Expectations of parents, complains from wife, stress of job, responsibilities of kids, bills, groceries and the list goes on… each father carries so many responsibilities but he cannot relax… he must not relax… ignoring his health and busy building future of kids…
Reached little early got a place to sit in the photography stand (last row). Got company of a group of photographers from Japan . This group of Japanese photographers came especially for this event. One of them mentioned they all retired from job and amateur photographers (they were elderly), but after looking at their instruments no one can say that. All of them were carrying at least 2 higher end (5D/7D) bodies and 500mm L or equivalent lenses. Probably they were trying me not to feel embarrassed in sitting with them :P.
Was wondering around Marina Bay Sands to capture full moon with it, but moon rose far away from it, relocating to other place was near to impossible in short duration of time. Will give it another try later.
Thinking to get rid of cropped sensor camera and buy full frame one, as I have to go behind to compose what I want and once go back it starts losing details, it sucks ! ISO, megapixels etc. are other problems. Not sure if its early to cough such a big money for it, will think … any suggestions are welcome 😀
