The obvious Beatles reference notwithstanding, I do seem to be on a winding road kick the last few posts. That’s ok. A good photo is a good photo.
Anyway, right after I moved to Iowa I asked around for some good places to shoot. Backbone State Park was a common response. So I packed up the gear, looked it up on a map, and took off for the park.
This was back when I still had film cameras, and this shot was done on film. With my Pentax 67II medium format film camera, to be specific. I sold it along with all my film equipment several years ago as I felt I was becoming a “jack of all photo trades, master of none”. I felt that by trying to do too much I was losing my focus (no pun intended). Hence, I decided to take the financial loss and focus solely on digital.
I do not regret my decision one bit, but I will admit that I do miss this camera and a couple others I had. Sometimes I feel like I should buy another film camera because I feel it would help me keep my skills sharper. It’s easy to get lazy with digital.
And here I am… all digital and going through older photos and finding some nice ones that, for whatever reason, I didn’t do anything with before. I guess you could say that this is a Reader’s Digest version of my own photography long and winding road.
