This looming tower of cactus was one of the last things I saw on a recent hike at Dove Mountain. My kids were pretty amazed when I pointed out the one eyed cyclops that seemed to be blocking our path. I think this saguaro was over 100 years old, as I am told it takes 70 years just to grow the bud of one arm. I took this with my Nikon D610, and I am pretty sure I had on a long zoom, most likely the 70-200.
Photography, Lessons Learned, and Cycling.
I have been taking pictures since I was about 6 years old. I started with a Kodak Instamatic. Just holding that Kodak was fun back then. Today, the camera badge may say "Nikon", but the fun of taking someone's photograph is still there.
Times have changed regarding photography over the past 20 years. My first business was in in Corpus Chirsti, Texas back in 1992. I went under the same name, my name, David Whitney French Photography. One of my favorite photo gigs was doing weddings. Why? Well, besides being a challenge at times, with the stress of getting the right shot in the age of film, everyone was happy! It was a happy time for the groom, bride, attendants, everyone. What more could I ask for? Hanging out, with a camera for a few hours or more with a bunch of happy people.
Oh, and I like riding my bike!
