From a Box Brownie, to the latest digital gear, it is all just tools, or a means of stating who we are, at various points in time. The sophistication of our images has more to do with our personal growth, than the equipment that we acquire along the way.

Alone in the City....
This street scene was shot a few years ago with my trusty old film camera on Black & White film. It was one of those negatives that for one reason or another, never got printed. Tonight while I was digging through a bunch of old files I happened upon this one, and decided to post it here. The lady could possible be coming from a shopping trip, or possibly a Doctor's appointment. Her gait was somewhat labored, and my guess was that her feet were killing her. She appears to be all alone in the world, and somewhat vulnerable. At any rate, I liked the perspective of the scene, and she helps to lend scale to it all. For me, this sort of shot is a nice departure from the usual flowers, birds and scenics that I have been photographing recently....hope you like it also.
