This is a blog dedicated essentially to photography. I would love to converse intelligently on photography as art, or any art for that matter, but I would just as soon have the photos speak for themselves and leave all that philosophical stuff for the other bloggers. I will do my best to avoid controversial subject matter not relevant to the photographs, not because I’m adverse to it, it’s just not the type of forum I had in mind. I have a humorous side that may, at times, infect this blog, rendering it “fact free”. You are hereby forewarned. Feel free to click the “Leave a Comment” button at the bottom of each post and tell me what you think. I promise I’ll get back to you since I don’t think there will be an overwhelming number of responses to the posts.
My background in photography goes back to the mid-’60s (that’s 1960’s, ahem) and I had the pleasure to use a variety of formats on a regular basis. I gave up film shooting 4 years ago but miss it terribly, and so I shoot digital now, which I love. We live in a digital world and I for one do not want to be left behind. Yet.
Technical Information: I don’t keep track of camera settings or any photo specifics but I will say that most of the photos taken between 2008 and 2012 were taken on a Nikon D80 (mostly with the kit lens) and more recently with a Nikon D600. Most photos are now edited in Lightroom with some Photoshop edits when necessary. File metadata is my accidental record keeper. I rely on my steel trap memory for any other relevant photo information, but this is good only for a short period of time as some days I can’t remember if I ate lunch or not. However, any request for info on any published photo will gladly be shared.
