Wielding a camera with the appropriate lens and the serendipity to witness the unfolding of the moment with an open choice to capture each sequence of the action at the push of a button seemed to be one of life’s most sought after privileges. Our science has evolved so well from just painting the reflection of the outside world through a pinhole in a closed room (camera obscura) to the moment that such metaphorical ‘box room’ with a hole on the side has shrunken in size as each photography equipment we behold. The ‘pinhole’ of course took the form of our camera’s viewfinder (or LCD screen) and a few of our kind had been so engrossed with an eye on it every now and then. I have here a few in a thousand images I have captured on my camera’s viewfinder and while I know this ‘fascination’ will not last for long it sure keeps me less worried even I maybe running low on storage space on my memory card and the tragic fact that I may get a fully charged battery when the one I’m using gets depleted but not when I’m down on the ground laying flat on my back with the last glimpse of the sky above.
