"Depression is connected with the past, anxiety latches on to the future, but holding a camera — being alert to the world around us — is the antidote to all that. Photography helps keep one in the present." (Quote by Karen Molson)
Several years ago, I had this zoom telephoto lens that I enjoyed using – so much so that it became a regular fixture on my camera. And then one day, while I was driving a rented car out in Alberta, someone cut me off and I slammed my left foot on the clutch. Oops, that was the brake! I was not driving my standard and the car came to a very abrupt stop. Unfortunately I neglected to hang the camera strap over the head rest of the passenger seat. End result: one badly damaged zoom telephoto lens!
I tried doing without and after two years I broke down and replaced the lens and started trying it out about a week ago. These photos are some of the results from a few places I have visited in the past week with my camera. Enjoy!
