Life’s Simple Pleasures

I have become more and more tired of the hustle and bustle of the Philadelphia scene.  High population density, oppressive traffic, extreme light pollution and constant noise has been part of my life for 12 years now.  I loved it during college, and I loved it even more after a turned 21, but it has been grating on my nerves lately.

I am lucky to live one block from an entrance to the Schuylkill River Trail.  While it is a far cry from peace and quiet – any time the weather is good it is swarmed with bikers and joggers, and it runs right up against very active railroad tracks – if you traverse about a mile in either direction of my home, you can reach areas where there is little to no development.  Very few people actively use these stretches of the trail, and you can venture off into the forest if you wish and trek alongside the Schuylkill River.

New Years Resolution 2017

My New Year’s Resolution this year was simple: get closure to nature.  To accomplish this, I purchased my first real deal camera.  I settled on a Sony A6000 mirrorless digital camera.  I didn’t want a DSLR.  They’re just too bulky.  New mirrorless cameras were the answer for me.  They provide the same fantastic image quality, rapid photography (they’re actually faster) and features of a DSLR, but in a much more compact form factor.  With the kit lens, I can fit the camera in my pocket comfortably and go hiking and exploring.

Life is better when you have a great camera.  You start noticing things you have never noticed before – sunrises, sunsets, cloud formations, starry skies, trees, birds, even complete strangers.   A photograph is nothing more than a moment frozen in time, but that moment says more than any human could ever put into words.  Life is so relentlessly busy, especially in the big city, but photography makes you stop everything, stand completely still and focus on what’s right in front of you in that single moment.  It is a calming experience like no other.


Pennsylvania weather is rarely pleasant.  Climatology data shows that more than 50% of our days are overcast or mostly cloudy while only around 25% are clear or mostly clear.  The other 25% are some mix in between.  We haven’t seen the sun since Wednesday, but tonight, it made a brief appearance around 4:30 PM, a mere 45 minutes before sunset.  It was a welcomed sight peaking through the clouds to the human eye, but to a highly advanced camera with variable focal lengths, it is a whole different experience.  Completely maxing out the f-stop left a sight to behold.


I will leave you with this image of tonight’s sunset: one of life’s simple pleasures.
