Considered by some to be little more than commercial pap, I happen to like taking quality pictures. Art is simply reproducing life, eh? I have neither the time, nor the patience to work in oil paints or to gingerly etch the the image of reality from within the confines of a stone.

Thus, I take pictures of what already exists. With careful attention to the light, the shapes and the lines, something of quality can be produced.

Rambling about Photography

Moving on, being that this is the Internet, the humble viewer is most likely either looking for equipiment reviews, stuff for sale or pictures. I haven't any images scanned in for your perusal, and if I own something, I am either using it, or plan on using it sooner or later. But, in terms of equipiment reviews . . .

I started out back in 1986(?) with an Olympus AX2 point and shoot that allowed, er, required me to manually focus, set the shutter speed and aperture. It was a nice bit of aperture-priority kit, and I learned quite a bit from it. Suprisingly, you can still get them from B&H, used for about $99 in 9+ condition,with electronic flash. Good starter camera; I'm going to order one for my wife.

Next, I migrated to the usual succession (or should that be suck-session) of fully automatic point and shoot boxes. I got smart after the 3rd one died on me and purchased a used Minolta X-700 and a couple of lenses. It worked. It was basically bullet-proof. I had it for ten years, through college and over 30,000 miles of driving.

Anyway, I just traded that in on a slightly newer Minolta 5xi. I don't have a whole lot to say on this one yet, so I'll let others speak for me.
