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.

Happy New Year - 2016
This image is one that I shot in my very brief visit to Brigis, Newfoundland this past Summer/Autumn. Lately, I have found that my interests are drifting to turning photographs into various forms of art. This one has a poster edges filter applied, and I rather like the look of it. For most of my many years doing photography, the photograph was the ultimate end of the process. However, I guess I am no longer a "purist" in that regard. Many of my photographic friends spend most of their time shooting nature images, but even though I greatly admire their images, I guess I am a landscape, seascape, portrait and other "stuff" photographer. That is just fine with me, as we can't all be interested in the same things. At the end of the day, my wish is that everyone find something that makes them truly happy and peaceful inside, and enjoy the good things in our lives, be they many or few....Happy New Year everyone!!!
