When I retired I bought a pocket camera to photograph our grandkids but my unsteady hands (essential tremor) made the pictures blurry. Image stabilization (IS) lenses offset my shakes, hence "lensjack."
That was 2003. Now even pocket cams and smartphones offer IS. Is life great or what?
True artists roll out before dawn or forego happy hour to craft twilight magic. I prefer lingering over breakfast - carpe lardum! - and savoring sunsets with my one true love and a flute full of bubbles. At this stage of the journey, I'm more interested in collecting memories than in pursuing imagery for its own sake.
That said, I remain profoundly grateful to the many brilliant photographers who daily enrich our lives and inspire us hobbyists with their work.
