Were you the happier man prior to, or post that Damascene moment?

Rob C
At the time I think I was happy that my cameras could last that long and still shoot well. Then I went over to the Dark Side (i.e., D*g*tal), and soon realized that by the time one figured out how to use a new camera, it was already obsolete in the eyes of the Pixel Peepers.

Now I'm quite pleased with my Canon 5DII and my Canon S95, and I don't miss the 8x10 view camera, or even the 4x5 at all. I still sometimes lust after the Mamiya 6 (my last real film camera) or even my Kodak Retina 3C, but I have no desire to go back to sloshing films or prints in toxic chemicals.

Spooky image, Doug; are you sure this shouldn't have been posted in the 'Cars' thread? Have to admit, though, I can see a Pontiac absolutely nowhere, so I might be mistake about that.

Given the "noir" feel of the image, I'd say it's more likely there's a Packard or a Pierce-Arrow hiding in that fog.   ;)

Sa Pobla main square; you hear as much Arabic as Spanish these days. I wonder what the trees think when they leaf through the years... repetition of history, no doubt.

They didn't say...

Smetime late in the pre-digital era I realized that not one of the six or so cameras I then owned had been in manufacture for at least thirty years.


Now THAT is old. Eric by "old" I meant that my stuff is about six years young, in the digital age they are dinosaurs and open to comments like " shucks are those still around?" and " you know there are cameras with two million percent better DR and ISO capabillities etc waffle waffle.."

The cameras are appliances to me, wish I could contribute in the other thread about character but I have no knowledge or experience with cameras that could instill the sense of pride that I see everyone writes about. I could write lots about a 1947 Series 2A Willys Jeep, '76 Landcruisers but nothing about a recent model Toyota Corolla.

And you survived? Well, obviously you did. Did you fit a total roll-bar?

Roll bar?? What is that? If you wanted "protection," from bugs that is, you would flip up the the flimsy windscreen.

Words fail me!

If ever there was a need for a name-change this must be it.

On the other hand, could it be brilliant, unforgettable marketing?

Rob - thanks for the comment. Good to know I do something well!

Could you elaborate on what you mean by 'this style' - I think it's of a kind with something I posted in the Trees thread (reposted here for comparison with the espaliers photo), that is a semi-abstract, picking out patterns etc, but I'm aware you might have something else in mind

That's exactly what I did mean, Bill; for me it's what lifts landscape from mere shot of beautiful view. It adds something by taking away. I suppose it's a sort of extreme cropping of the existing environment, a cutting away of the extraneous and concentration on the essence of whatever by making it something other than what it basically is.

I better be careful here: easy in this context to slide dangerously close to that word c********y, and that would never do!
