About me

i suppose you could say I'm old fashioned.i 've always been against the new technological age.looking at what's possible with new digital cameras makes the old SLR image quality look hazy to say the least.
having said that looking at images taken on these new generation cameras, often they look too perfect and therefore false.i wonder what the original was like and suspect nothing like the final all the tweaking in photo shop, etc.
it's a bit like watching Dallas.perfect hair, perfect teeth, perfect skin equals er fact i'm heartily sick of toothpaste commercials.

    My very dear friend, Mike, although I have long stopped beleiving in these FC distinctions as "favorites","appreciated" etc..., I thank you from in my heart for putting , once more,a photo of mine in competition for a place in the gallery.Please beleive me that, for me, knowing the knowledge and the sensitivity with which you approach photography, your opinion and appreciation count a lot more. And thank you for that.
