There's a simplicity to life that we choose to ignore for sensationalism. People sitting for hours glued to television news, absorbing hour after hour of tragedy. Our society a toxic stew that doesn't seek common ground, but draws lines in the sand, ready to do battle with friends and neighbor who don't hold the same point of view. This is a recipe disaster, all amplified by technology, and there just may be no turning back.
I tried a different camera on this year's boat parade and it really did a good job. The camera was a Sony NEX-7 set on twilight used handheld with no flash. The images aren't perfect, but the images are much better than anything I've been able to capture before. Camera technology just keeps getting better.
