From The “Pasttime Pub.”
It’s amazing the pictures you can take with a cheap phone camera. This was taken from the back of a ferry around 7 pm(?).
I took this picture back in the 1980’s in Penn Station. I was into photography back then and always carried my camera with me. Right when I took this picture, the little girl turned around and looked at me.
This picture haunted me for a long time. I always wondered what happened to that little girl. She probably is in her 30’s by now. I kind of wish I could find her and give her a copy of the picture.
Would be funny if I met her and gave her the picture and she said, “I always wondered what happened to that guy who took my picture way back when.”
I used to have a Pentex ME Super at one time. With “real” film. Now all I have a little Vivitar digital camera. I plan on getting a good digital camera one day. I want one where you look through the lens instead of the viewfinder. When I catch up with some bills, I’ll see.
I used to laugh when people said, “This camera takes good pictures.” It’s not the camera, it’s the person taking the picture. (lol)
Still, when the lighting is right and the stars are in place, you can get a good picture with any camera.
I got this picture just when the light hit it at the right angle.
