Film is Dead

Funny thing happened as I began uploading photographs to this site. I kept looking at my film images, some of which were shot long ago with a basic 35mm camera, and had this recurring feeling that I just preferred these to digital. Yeah, I know all the debates...Film is dead. Digital has its place and I shoot lots of digital, but I was missing something that came with film. I was missing that thoughtful, deliberate shooting. 

I got rid of my film gear many years ago, which meant I had to start from scratch. My first choice became a rangefinder. This Leica (Minolta) CL, the poor man's (woman's) Leica, and my fave TriX film all went out for the first time a week ago. I'm adjusting to focusing again, to checking my metering, to slowing down until I have a shot. No firing away, just composing and shoot. 

It may be a couple of weeks before I develop the first shots. My guess is that I'm going to have a whole lotta crap before I start to get in the flow. Regardless, I'm enjoying walking about and finding my way. 


Well it's up

After much hem haw and delay...excuses set aside the website is up. There is much to do here, but it is up for you to see the work all in one place.
