Photographer's Note

I joined the TE community at a very difficult time in my life. A dear friend of mine pushed me to sign up. She had been telling me for months about TE by the time I finally accepted to join. I got a lot from it. I didn't really get what I was expecting but I did get more than I could've hoped for. Sometimes I am annoyed about this excessively friendly atmosphere and often about the fact that so many of the pictures have nothing to do with the TE mission (mine are not an exception). I'm saddened when I read over and over in people's notes or comments that they came here hoping to improve their photographic skills. I'm still hoping that we will not forget that TE is a place to educate and become educated about the world around us. That's why I decided to join when I finally did so. I was sitting in front of the computer and read pretty much everything there was to read about TE before I joined. Of course, by now, I forgot almost everything I read a year ago, but not quite everything. I did learn a bunch of new things about this world of ours but I also improved my photographic skills, I must admit that. I also learned a lot about cameras as now I'm trying to figure out what camera, a good one, I can afford to buy. I've been trying to figure that out for more than half a year now... I'm hoping by Christmas, maybe.

I guess today's picture is a good example of why I want a better camera. The large barrel distortions are easily visible on this architectural shot. I shot this based on the idea I got seeing this picture Isabela posted last year. It is a shot of the new John Hancock tower, the tallest building in Boston, with its top disappearing in the low level clouds.

THANK YOU, TE, for everything you've given me over this past year.
