Back in the 60's, while camping out in the woods with our Scout troop, I used my cheap little 126mm camera for the first time. B&W film with only 12 exposures, and on the last day of camp these three guys suddenly came out of the dark woods on a slightly hazy morning marching like this to show that they survived their week camping out in the wilderness.
I did not realize what I had gotten with the quick shot I got until about a month later when I finally got back my developed photos. Some were good, several were not and then there was this one which I called, "The Survivors".
This was the image that planted the seed of photography in me and began my lifelong adventure in photography.
Over 50 years later, in my 70's, I still engage, to some extent, in my lifelong avocation of photography...
While resting in my reading nook I like relaxing with my feet up on a very old footrest, and having my guitar close by sure helps to relieve the stress that may come up in my life. Since that only happens on rare occasions, I just like relaxing for no reason at all.
So far I really like the look of the Americana Hipstapak. It reminds me quite a lot of the B&W film I used back in the 50's and 60's. I plan on using this pak in different lighting situations just to see how it does.
Weather, lately, has been hot and wet. Daylily's like hot and sunny times. So I was surprised to go out early one morning to find this beauty all by herself. Now, she will live on for as long as this photograph lasts...
