...and these footprints in the sand
Maybe nothing grand
But if we leave a mark in somebody's heart,
What more can I say
Than "I was a king for a day" ...
I've always enjoyed photography and believe that as beautifully as the words of a poem convey the depth of our emotions, so do our photographs unveil our thoughts and reflect on our souls.
My first stint at photography started in 1972 with an Asahi Pentax SP500. In later years, I tried Nikon, then switched over to a Canon A-1 which I favored very much over other cameras. I remained with Canon products and my last pre-digital SLR was a Canon EOS Elan 7 and a host of lenses and zooms. Now I use a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, a Canon EOS 40D as well as a small wonder from Sony, the Cybershot. As for the SLR lenses, I have limited myself to the following three:
- Canon 24-105 mm f 4.00
- Sigma 70-200 f 2.8
- Tokina 16-28 mm f 2.8
In the past 61 years I've been in this world, I have accomplished quite a bit, but also had my share of pains and sorrows. I have written and published a book (The Larsky Gang) and have traveled the world, but I've also made numerous mistakes and missteps and I hope to learn from them someday soon--I guess the time is running out on me as I have crossed the the 60th year of life and so I'd better hurry!
Fotocommunity has been a great place for me to not only post my photos, but also to acquire beautiful friends and friendships across the globe, from whom I have learned plenty of valuable photographic techniques and ideas.
