fire and water

And a few other images thrown in for good measure.

Here are the photos that have been in the Pentax camera that I mentioned in my previous post. They've been there for about 4 years -- since the year that everyone traveled east for Thanksgiving at the farm, and Nick brought friend Josh along. The photo taken at the dinner table looks a bit like The Hippie Family Robinson -- a scary bunch! Nick, Josh, and Hannah all have much shorter hair now. I love the one of Sara and Grant at Sandy Neck beach. It was such a grey day and the colors were so dull that I played a little bit with black and white editing. So, we travel back to 2004....

what i found

As usual when I get obsessed with something, I read every book on the subject. I was reading The Tao of Photography this morning, and the author talked about the problem of getting overly immersed in the equipment and mechanics of photography and losing sight of the appreciation of the world you're trying to capture. Even though I'm a total amateur and don't have high tech equipment, even my inexpensive digital camera has about a gazillion settings that I can easily get hung up on. He suggested occasionally using a low-tech camera and relying on your own vision and abilities rather than that of the camera. Then the little flash bulb went off in my head and I realized I have several old cameras to play with. Remember this old friend?

I also have this camera, which I haven't used for probably 4 years. And it still has film in it! Looks like a trip to the camera store is the project for the day. Stay tuned.

lady slippers

This is a photo from my Cape Walk hike last year, but I thought maybe if I re-posted it it would bring on the warmer weather a little sooner?

a few mossy stones at the mosswood cemetery

I admit it: I am way too easily entertained...
