The Photographer’s Dilemma!

Have you ever been faced with the situation? You arrive at the venue… camera in hand, ready to record the events unfolding, when someone spots the camera. They dash over…

“Please mister, won’t you take a photo of my little Johnny, he’s the lad with the blue top… yes, that’s him there!”

No Adrian... look, there... not where you're pointing that thing!

No, this isn’t quite the case with these pics. It was more me wanting to get photos of AM when he visited the North Kildare Cricket Club a few evenings ago. I made my way over for a chat and boy, was I rewarded!! Adrian was a mine of information and didn’t bat an eyelid at all my stupid questions and suggestions. The consummate professional ready to answer the insane barrage of questions he must surely have heard a few thousand times before from the likes of we mere morals who dream of owning such equipment!

Let me have a look... yes, I spot your little Johnny... yep, that's him!

Anyway, thanks Adrian for your patient tolerance! I really enjoyed meeting you and do hope we soon cross paths again. Yes, here’s a good reminder of simple truth for all of us who aspire to own equipment half as good. Adrian simply put it so…

“A carpenter needs a saw, a photographer needs a camera, they’re just tools to get the job done.”

Adrian Melia with his tool of the trade... he's a knack of capturing the unusual rather splendidly!

As I mentioned, Adrian was at the North Kildare Cricket Club so we may soon see some NKCC photos on his site. Do click here to visit, you’ll really enjoy the diversity and quality of creativity from a photographer who not only has a keen eye but a mighty sense of humour as well!

    It’s not the size that counts, it’s how you use it! Problem for me is that the photographers who come over for a chat when they see me poking my lens around mostly have far bigger and better equipment, and almost invariably are more adept at how they put it to use…

      You say it well!! I think you have more than shown with all your photos just how well you use your equipment. You don’t have to stand back for anyone.

      Just by the way, your photos convey a warmth… a feeling for your environment. Your photos aren’t just pictures… they’re pleasure pictures! 😉


I value your 'likes' and comments, even though I don't always reciprocate, I care. Thanks for making the effort! God Bless!!
