  1. I like ice cream....

    Digital is quick, easy, instant, and cheap. The image quality is excellent and the versatility of digital equipment simply cannot be matched.

    Personally, I prefer film. To me it really is more about the journey than the destination. I love the whole process. And in this fast paced world of instant gratification and instant disappointment, I find it very therapeutic to slow down and take my time to really enjoy the sunset, so to speak.

  2. It's not all Black and White to me

    by , 08-04-2014 at 05:07 PM
    A couple of years ago, I needed to replace my digital Bridge camera and started shopping on the bay for something to use. I found a nice Kodak Z981 with a super zoom that fit my needs. The problem is I didn't stop there.

    Next, I started shopping DSLRs, buying and fixing and trading up to an Olympus E-3 with 5 lenses and assorted filters, bags, tripods, timers, remotes and flash. While hunting for 'my ultimate camera' I started noticing how cheap 35mm's had become. A Canon AE-1 ...

  4. Been two years. But I'm back.

    by , 11-26-2013 at 09:36 PM
    Well, I kind of departed suddenly. Without a trace. POOF!, one might say.

    I'm sorry I disappeared. I know I don't need to apologize. But I was having a hard time after Faith died. As I mentioned in the last entry I sold all of my camera gear. Just felt the need to remove the 'obligation' I felt to use something I had when I wanted nothing to do with it. And I moved in a different direction, that being getting my family through a tough time.
