A camera is *NOT* just a tool

It has wisely been posited that a camera is just a tool. I'm here to expose it for what it really is.

While it may masquerade as a tool, a camera is:

  • A projection of my personality
  • A reflection of my attitude about quality
  • A tactile experience--what camera do you want to do it with?
  • A partner to my favorite lens
  • My ticket to shooting in the dark without flash
  • A fashion statement
  • My partner in stealth
  • The second stage in my Lightroom workflow (vision being the first)
  • An extension of my eye
  • A trusted servant
  • (In my case) A battery hog
