Topics I've Started

Help Mr. Igo

or anyone else with experience in motion photography.

 

I know Arsen had a thread about getting a new camera and I could have posted there, but I'm actually looking for a bit more info than just about a camera.

 

I want to get into doing some amateur photography and I'm wondering what I really need to get started. I want to do some nature photography, leaning more towards animals in motion, and possibly doing some photography at the grandkid's games. I know there's a lot of high dollar high tech equipment out there and I could drop thousands, but what do I really need to know when buying equipment?

 

I would like to keep it around a grand, with any bags, stands etc I need at least to start with, but also a platform I can expand off of if I decide I want to do this more. I don't know if it's possible in that price range, but any info you have would be greatly appreciated.

Inspirational quotes

I'm looking for some quotes for the walls of my office. I read a lot of quotes, but I thought some of you might have some that I haven't heard before. The one currently stenciled on one wall is,

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. - Bill Cosby

Did I overreact?

So last night I go into the grocery store to pick up some stuff to make dinner. I'm in the produce section and a family comes walking in with their dog. This dog is filthy dirty, and every time they stopped, it sat down and started scratching itself. 

 

Here's the more interesting part to me. As I'm leaving, someone else asked an employee why they didn't say anything to them. They were told if they say the word service pet, they aren't allowed to do or say anything else to them. Two of my family members have service animals, one for getting the attention of a deaf family member and one for detecting epileptic seizures before they happen. 

 

So here's my question. Should people with service pets have to have them tagged? The best way I can think of is with a working pet jacket and a service pet card, something you would get from your doctor. No need to ask what the nature of the disability is, but just to a card in a sleeve on the back of the vest as identification that this is in fact a working service animal. 

 

Anyway, I left the store and finished my shopping elsewhere. I didn't want to continue shopping around a dog that looked like it had a really bad case of fleas. I realize that there are disabilities that can't be seen and the need for service animals is very real. I just don't understand why anyone is allowed to say the words "service animal" and any verification has to stop right there.
