…happily because I have been busy with various jobs but also I have travelled to the USA for a break with my grandchildren in New York. The weather was great and the relaxed pace of life outside of the city was just what I needed…although only 50 minutes out of Manhattan, Westchester County is a refreshing blend urban style and rural charm.
One of the reasons for the visit was to attend to my grandson’s first Holy Communion. This was a joyous and enjoyable occasion, but for me the event was spoiled by the sheer numbers of parents and grandparents standing up and taking photos of their kids throughout the ceremony. Although I am a professional photographer I thought it important to wait until the communion was over. I can only imagine what results were obtained by using an Iphone/compact camera at long distance in poor light….
