I Forgot The Battery

On a whim, I headed for Floyd Lamb Park once again today but forgot to get the battery for the Nikon from the wall charger. Call me senile? I also forgot that it’s Sunday which means that the park would be super busy which it was. Usually, I drive right to the entrance gate and booth but not today, I was at least ten cars back from the booth.

Driving through the park I noticed multiple groups of people all near the ponds, the geese, and other birds scattered among the hundreds of people. I hopped out of the truck and had a short walk but decided to head back to the truck and home. These days, everyone carries a backup camera with them in the form of a phone camera.

Frankly, I use my iPhone as a camera, as a social media device, and to arm and disarm my home alarm system more than I do to text or call family members. So on the way to the park, out comes the trusty iPhone, always ready to capture the photo. These photos aren’t Nikon quality so don’t laugh! I do like the simplicity of the camera though.
