Yesterday I went to the Core Creek Park without a camera just for walking and relaxation. And sure enough there was a colorful event - the 5th Annual Bucks County Dragon Boat Festival. As I found out later the dragon boat racing has become the world’s fastest growing water sport. Although, for some reason I never heard of it before, the Bucks County Dragon Boat Association was established seven years ago and is doing very well - next year two of its teams will compete in 2020 IDBF Club Crew World Championships to be held in Aix-Les-Bain, France.
It would be a pity to miss this photo opportunity but the only option I had was to use my old iPhone’s camera. Its pictures quality supposed to be a far cry even from my 12 years old D2H camera so I never tried to take a photo with it. But as they say - ‘The best camera is the one you have with you’.
To my surprise (I know, I know that the latest and greatest smart phones produce great quality images but mine is a 6 years old patriarch) the camera performed better than I expected and pictures came out pretty usable for online posting, even though not good enough for enlargement and printing. On the bright side it’s always with me and it saved my day. So here we are.
