This weekend my wife and I were in Newport, Rhode Island with some friends. We had a very relaxing time and visited a mansion we hadn’t been to before. Nearly everywhere we went I saw pro-level lenses and bodies. For the most part that is to be expected.
However I started to see older folk whipping out 5D Mark II cameras… people you wouldn’t expect to see holding a point and shoot camera, let alone a DSLR. I swear I saw an older woman pull one out of her purse… I have no idea how she fit it in there.
I came away with some decent photos of my own (although there was a lot of fog on Saturday), but also a serious case of camera envy.
