no one was a more reluctant digital photographer than i was. i hated the idea, in large part because it meant reinvesting in gear and starting at the bottom again. when my film camera broke , i went without a camera for two years. when my husband gave my my first digital camera ,it sat untouched for another year. finally i took a class online and began again. i am grateful for all that the digital age has allowed me to learn. the instant feedback of that LCD screen was what i needed to take my photography to the next level. i have easily taken 70,000 shots in the last 3 years, something that would have been impossible with film , and i am grateful . however maybe because i am old fashioned but the loss of film always tugged at me . i am excited to be going back ( in part) to were i came from.
Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won
Take the sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ve made it now

i tend to rush things… look forward to what is ahead rather than enjoy what is here. that is especially true this time of year. i am desperately looking forward to warmer weather and signs of spring. however i have to admit that cold afternoons can have their charm , especially when paired with the right things…. warm bread from my oven, homemade jam from last summers bounty, some spring purchased at the local grocer and a good magazine. every once in a while i manage to live in the moment!
