You Don't Take a Picture...

...you are given one.

The ubiquitous camera.  Just think how, just a hundred years ago, cameras were for the wealthy only.  They were so rare that many people never saw one in their lives.  Today a photograph from a cellphone can have the acuity of a very costly camera.  Optics and lenses are available to the layperson for a very affordable price.  

I don't have a single special lens, I have never taken lessons, and I often take pics from a moving car and still I have taken some spectacular shots!  Every one of these is mostly just point and shoot.
Have a look.

I have hundreds of others!  My point?
Technology ROCKS my socks!  I have been given the opportunity to be there for each of these shots and to actually TAKE THEM.  Or...I have been given them...
