When I got my first camera around five years ago, I asked my husband to bring me to the sea to take photos. I totally had no idea that time on how to use the camera. I just wanted to capture moments and add them to my collection of visual memories. I knew nothing about ISO, DOF, and other technical terms. I just really wanted to test the camera.
Jeddah isn’t really that photographer-friendly. Street photography is almost forbidden here. It isn’t allowed to take photos of people, especially women, without permission. So the only place to be where I could freely shoot was the seaside.
I really love these photos of birds below. I remember, I was havig difficulty holding the camera with the long lens I used. (long lens?! haha and I was just beginning?!) Anyway, I had two goals that time: to capture the sunset’s beauty and to at least take a picture of a flying bird. =)
I think there’s a perfect verse that could go with these photos:
Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, 31Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 40:30-31
Camera used in these photos: Nikon D3000
