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.

Summer....Where Are You?
Tired of Winter already? This is the time of year when you can just barely notice that the days are starting to lengthen out a bit, and the sun is actually starting to have a bit of warmth to it, especially when driving in the car on a sunny day. Tonight, I was foraging about in my files from last Summer, and came across this one. I had used my old Minolta 100mm Soft Focus Portrait lens, and that old lens has a really nice warmth to the colours and tones. The old Minolta glass was well known for that feature, and that is one reason that old die hards like myself, can't even think of parting with them. Anyway, I digress. This image just takes your mind away from the reality of dirty snow, and freezing rain, and helps calm the nerves whenever you think that in a few months, we will be able to go outside and shoot more roses, or whatever kind of blossoms that are around.....can't wait.....
