How Much do I Love This?


 Hola, hola, hola. I take so many pictures. I really am sometimes totally out of control. As I have mentioned I am a wussy photographer. I don't like to get in anyone's space. I often try a secret my youngest little brother, who is a very famous Hollywood camera man, taught me........keep your camera at waist level, stay in the background and click away. Well, when he does it his photos look ready for GQ, but when following professional advice like his, mine look like crap...........sorry, mom, i know i am not supposed to say 'crap'..........

But, LOOK! How much do I love these two photos? So much I can hardly stand it. Waist level, clicking away, staying in the shadows and look what I got. While the bride is messing with her dress back, the photographer is taking photos of the groom. I should win some kind of prize, don't you think?  LOOK at her flip flops, on the ground by the photographer. Really two of the best photos I have ever taken, following some good advice.


I just got back from my yearly walk to La Aduana. I went with a very sore back and returned with a very sore back and a really sore hip. Maybe it's my last time to walk for 2 hours in the dark with a dying flashlight, one hour on a road that is beginning to need new asphalt because it has acquired some new holes and another hour in a deep sand and sometimes rock strewn arroyo. I don't know. I love going so much. I love watching the church procession come in and the deer dancers and the music and and the ladies I walk with and all the people and I love the corn.
Here is a link to my post about last year's walk. At least I think it is a link. It looks suspicious to me. I think it is supposed to have a blue underline. Maybe you will have to paste it into your browser if you want to read more. I could post all my pictures from the morning, but if you read the blog, you have already seen the pictures because they look an awful lot just like last year's. So, try this page or link to see them again.

But here is the corn. The lady pulls an ear from a simmering pot of corn and slices all the kernels off and puts them into a paper cup. She adds a tiny bit of corn juice from the pot and some butter and sprinkles cheese on top.

Then I take it and fill the cup with lime juice and picante sauce and chili and spices and whatever else she has out on the table because I like it all and then after I eat it I want to have another but the ladies I have walked with are heading for the churro stand. So I have a bunch of churros instead. 

Okay then, I am totally pooped and I am just fixing to get out the heating pad and put it on my hip and take a nap.
Hasta luego! Linda Lou

Sounds like fun and good food also.
I never would have been able to walk back after eating all that without a nap lol.
I beat the hot food tasted good after the cold walk.

Great photos! I'm going to try the 'shoot from the waist' thing - thanks Paul!

I also don't like pushing my way forward to take a photo but I do have a problem with camera shake and even on a high shutter speed find I need a tripod these days, so surruptitiously taking photos from the waist won't work for me - which is a great shame because you've proved it captures some very natural shots. There is nothing worse than trying to get a relaxed photo when everyone sees the camera and poses.

My favourite 'casual' photo I ever took was on holiday in Half Moon Bay, near San Fransisco. There was an elderly gentleman taking a well earned rest on a street bench - and I managed a quick photo from behind a large tree. Loved the result.

Yennifer, you need NO advice on phototaking, you could be giving it. LL

Jacqui, my Sony cyber shot has a camera 'shake button'. I could not take any photos like that without it, and it works pretty good.LL

Oh, the 'tricks of the trade' :-)

Congrats on such great 'waist level shots"....good advice from Paul after all! What a beautiful wedding gown....and that corn looks muy bueno! We went to a garage sale once & the lady that lived there was selling corn in a cup just like that....we've always wished we could find another corn lady :-) Hope your back & hip are feeling better! xoxo
