Use what you have


Today I walked to the lake that is very close. A lake in the background is always nice, I thought. I had no tripod with me and also no remote control. Only my camera hang over my shoulder. I removed the strap and put the camera on a bench. I used the self-timer in the camera to take some pictures.

Sometimes a camera is enough. It’s not necessary to carry around all the fancy gadgets. It’s nice to have. Yet it’s possible to be creative with much less.

If I put a book under the camera I could have changed the frame. A book or a journal is always in my handbag.
