I didn’t think you recently graduated from high school, Sherry, but the first digital camera was produced in 1986 and they were popular by the 1990’s. I got my first one in 2002 and I wasn’t even into photography at the time!

Just giving you a hard time. Many people only use their phone cameras and the newer ones are pretty darn fabulous. All those rain photos I took that you liked so much? All taken with my phone. I like playing with my Canon and trying to learn new things — which I forget three days later — but I would be perfectly fine taking photos with nothing but my phone. When I took the photos at the butterfly forest recently, I switched from my Canon to my phone because the Canon was taking so long to focus that the butterflies were gone!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
