When I was visiting a friend last month, I noticed this house next door. The light was appealing, so I went and got my camera, tripod and what not out of the car. I had been playing with her boys, so we had to take a break for me to set up my camera. The children asked me about my camera, which was a Hasselblad, and probably looked unlike anything they had seen. I told them about film, although I don't think they understood. One of them asked me, "So are you like, a photographer, do you get paid, is this your job?" I really had to laugh and tried to think of a response. The obvious is, no I don't get paid, but it is sorta my job. How do you explain that to a five year old, when its something I can't grasp myself?
