"One of a kind post!"


creekside, US
          

Hi everyone, conowingo proved to be frustrating once again, but had a good time trying to get a photo of a bald eagle. But hey, not to worry, got a whole card full of VULTURES! Now they're all my friends Hey, I want to take a poll. Here's the scenerio: I'm standing along the fence with my little 70-300 and snapping away as usual. I smile as the guys with the longer lens look at me and smile. All is well. At the end of the day, I was packing up my stuff to leave and I noticed two photographers a little ways from me, one still having his large lens mounted on his tripod, however he was sitting with another photographer and just chatting. I have always wanted to just look through a large lens like that but never really had the courage to say, "hey, can I look through your lens".
Well, I decided this was going to be the day that I took the plunge, gathered up some courage and JUST ASK! So I strolled over to them, introduced myself and my camera and my wee little 70-300 lens and asked if it would be possible if I could look through a real PROFESSIONAL lens as I never have. The man was pretty tall because I saw him before he sat down and he said sure but you probably won't be able to reach it...And he still sat..... and sat....and sat.... Even on my tippy toes, I could not see into his camera. After a bit, I felt a little embarassed because he made no attemt whatsoever to get up and lower the camera for me to see through it. So I just smiled and said "well thanks anyway, I guess I'm just not tall enough" and I humblely ventured over to my car. You know, I could have understood if he was standing there with his camera, had something really set on his focusing and did'n't want to move it, that would have been okay. But I know full well that wasn't the case.
I felt funny as I left and thought, "well, maybe asking to see through his camera was out of line and I just shouldn't have. But then I also thought, "wait a minute" aren't we all fellow photographers and it wouldn't have hurt him to lower that for me for just a minute. It sure would have made my day...But anyway, after feeling defeated, I just left and tried not to think of it the rest of the day. But I just kind of wanted you guys take on this..was I out of line? Thanks friends...
