Capture the Moment Monday

Dave Berry, Director of the Photography Department at Computer School for Seniors will share his insightful Photo Tips with you on Capture the Moment Mondays.

1st Photo Safari with my Son!!!!!


My son Brian called me right before Christmas and expressed an interest in getting into Photography. I have been behind the lens for over 40 years but I have chosen not to convince my children to share in my hobby unless they wanted to be involved. When he called and wanted my recommendation on buying his first camera I was thrilled to say the least! After giving him my recommendations, his brand new Nikon D90 with two lens arrived on Christmas Eve. I can't tell you how thrilled I was to give him a crash course in Photography over the Christmas Holiday. A couple of weekends later he called and wanted to go shooting.

Even though it was in the low 30's that weekend I suggested going to the Ft. Worth Zoo....

I must say we had a Blast !!!!!!.


When we got home my wife said to me, "Do you realize that was the first time you have ever taken your son to the Zoo?" I thought about it awhile and she was right. I had been so busy in my career when my kids where young I had never taken them to the zoo.


What I haven't shared with you is my son Brian just turned 31 years old last December. It was one of the best days I've spent with my Son and to think it took photography to bring us together for our 1st Father/Son trip to the zoo. I guess you can say it's never to late!


Hear are some of our pictures from our 1st Photo Safari. Hope you enjoy! Until next week Thanks for dropping by. Meanwhile go out and...
