Welcome


 

With a camera and laptop in my hands, I’m recording some of the things and moments in my life.
Present moments become past, old friendships dissolve with distance and time, new acquaintances become friendships, the cityscapes of the places I’ve lived in blur, life changes and evolves.  Photographs and recorded memories help provide me more solid bases to spring off,  heeding the admonition “those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it”.

Welcome to my photo gallery.

About a hundred and fifty years ago I was in my High School Photography Club.  Back then we used 35 mm film cameras. Films were rated in ASA  and  Plus X was king.  We dabbled with foul chemicals in dark rooms every now and then, it was a whole lot of fun.  We were young students, explorers, and experimenters.  I actually may have known what an f-stop was before cameras had the handy “a” for auto setting.

After high school other things took priority.   Life happened.  Fast forward a bit.  They took my Kodachrome away. Fast forward a lot more.  Digital photography is here. OMG, even my telephone takes pictures and movies.

Last year I got myself a Canon T3 and photoshop .  I’m learning about white balance, ISO’s and a few other geeky technicalities.  The main thing will be to teach me to “see” and record those visual impressions.  Right now I’m a student, explorer, and experimenter all over again.
