  • I have this insane habit of carrying my large DSLR with me everywhere I go. I always have this nagging feeling that I might miss something. That the perfect shot will be lost forever if I do not have my camera....

    And despite its bulk, and my often aching shoulders - it is my constant companion. So that I may transport a moment from the lens & share with whomever.

    I often see others doing the same. And we exchange knowing glances without words. The language of the lens.
