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.

Captain Morgan's Rose.....
This one is for my friend John....sorry John, I just couldn't help myself tonight. From now on, I promise to get "serious". My wife just hates when I do this sort of stuff, but in actuality, it is just a method of "reclaiming" a very much less than perfect rose that I shot on our back deck last fall. Since I strive to keep cloning to a minimum, it is a bit of a challenge for me to take images that are blemished, and cover it all up with a few filters in Photoshop & Corel, and create something totally different or unusual. The folks at the horticultural society must just go nuts when they see such "violence" done to flowers and such. But, I have to admit, it is fun, and you do not need any Captain Morgan to get a laugh from it.....'tis all about fun from now on remember....but I'm sure some of you are saying, "go on back and hide in the darkroom old man, you are a digital disaster".....Cheers!
