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.
With all of the garbage that we seem to be constantly bombarded with in the media these days, haven't you ever wished that you could just get away from it all? There aren't too many times when I am envious of someone in this world, but I have to say that when I went to Brigus, Newfoundland, and saw this house sitting all by its self across the bay, it gave me a total body ache. How this person found a way to build his home in this remote and profoundly beautiful place is an example of what some folks will do to gain total peace and quiet. If it were me, there would be no TV, no computer, no phone.....just the wind, the ocean, seagulls and a boat of course....put on the kettle, it's time for a "mug up". (cup of tea) Sit on the veranda and watch the sun drop down into the bay... Oh yeah! As many of us old photographers would say, "keep it simple" and "less is more".....makes sense to me.
