HELLO, MY NAME IS _____, I’M A PHOTOHOLIC…

A photoholic??  That’s not even a word!  I’m not addicted to photography!  I can stop any time I want!  But wait!  Isn’t that what all addicts say???

Yesterday, I noticed this beautiful flower as I was leaving my office building.  I immediately reached for my camera, which was in the backpack slung over my shoulder.  (Um…you might be a photoholic if you carry your camera everywhere you go) 

NO! 

KEEP WALKING! 

DON’T EVEN SLOW DOWN TO LOOK! 

YOU HAVE HUNDREDS OF FLOWER PHOTOS! 

YOU DON’T NEED ANY MORE!

But it’s so beautiful! (that’s the inner voice every photoholic hears)

It’ll just take a minute!

OK…now, you just think I’m crazy!  🙂

Yesterday, I saw this flower – I shot it, and this is the result.  That doesn’t mean anything.  Does it?

  5. No macro – I’m considering buying one – but, they can be pretty expensive. I was using my Canon 50D with a 28-135 mm zoom. Thanks for your comment.

  9. Certainly worth stopping for! It’s beautiful.

    There are worse addictions than photography. Or so I keep explaining to myself, my family, and my friends. 😉

  10. AHA! i totally understand that feeling!
    you are a photoholic! admit it! lol xD
    it’s cool in a sense that photo will remain like that (the beauty of course) until the end of the world; when the flower itself will die pretty soon 😛

    good thing you stopped for that shot!
    such pretty flower
    the flower has this “take a picture of meeeee~” aura i bet!

  17. Photoholic it a good name for what we do. I take my camera everywhere and usually very much out in the open, ever ready, scanning the lay of the land for whatever strikes my interest, one never knows when the opportunity to photograph some wonderful moment will arrive.
    The day lily is beautiful even if you have thousand before it.
    I am a friend of Terrill, I followed your trail to your blog!

  18. “Photoholic,” eh? Um, does the fact that I shot over 15,000 photos in roughly one year on my previous digital camera count? Amusingly, I found out that because the files are formatted as DSC_####, once you reach 10,000, the file names roll over back to 0001. Then I started having to actually name my files on my own.

    Er, as for carrying a camera around at all times…well, let’s just say that the pack I recently acquired has more space allocated in it to camera storage than it does to other more useful things like file folders, lunch, writing implements, etc. And on any given day, I have my camera and five lenses in there…

    Also, very nice shot. If you find yourself shooting many like it, you may want to pick up a true macro lens. The added “specialty” design of such lenses does make for some rather stunning results.

    And talking to yourself isn’t crazy…um, well, I don’t think it’s crazy since I do it all the time. You may want to seek an outside perspective on that, though…I don’t think I’m entirely objective in this case…

  19. What a beautiful blog you have here! This post is an exact transcript of a conversation I had with myself this morning! But then, you are obviously a much more accomplished photographer than I am, so perhaps you have more of an excuse! A lovely blog, I will definitely be returning!
