RUSHING IN – 11-10-19 In my not-so-long ago of learning how to fly the drone, I one day took the drone to one of my favorite locations (Butcher Bay) to go capture the early morning sunrise. On getting there, I realized I had left the cable that connects between my phone and the controller. The scene was beautiful and I had already envisioned the drone shot and angle I wanted to capture from. Returning back home to get the cable was a no no. Distance and time would let me miss the scene. Good thing I went along with my DSLR even tho it was extra weight. I pulled it out and took a couple of pics to preserve the beauty. I was actually glad on seeing the outcome of the pics. I thought to myself, would I have gotten similar expression from the drone shot? Would I have been able to capture the moment? As I was still learning and figuring my way out by then. I couldn't tell for sure. Yesterday, Mr Bob said to me "Don't forget your DSLR". It was like a wake up call. I realized how much I miss shooting with my DSLR. Picking out the details in the locations to capture in my frame 😩 Going the extra mile, risking my gadgets at the expense of a shot… sigh. I've become so attached to this drone shots that I'd rather stay home, fly the drone and just have a portion of the ocean in view with either the sun setting or rising. Well, here is to a new beginning of orderliness. I'm picking up my DSLR again. Not gonna ask my friend for the drone for sometime. I need to build a healthy balance between this two (the drone and DSLR). Rushing In… My perspective of the year so far. One would say, "Gone By Too Soon." I really didn't expect us to get here this fast. But in all, I'm grateful I made it this far as well as yourself. November – My birth month. Growth… hmph! Happy New Month and GOD bless!
