After A Long Silence

Going Slowly Down Dark Stairs

I haven’t posted for a long while and I apologize for my silence. The truth is my photography method and output is starting to change and I’ve been wrestling with this evolution. First, my love for the fanciest camera gear is waining. My Fuji T3 and lenses have been put up for sale and in its place I’m using a small EOS M6 II with just one lens. There is quite a relief associated with this change. It’s probable because there is more time to think about what I want to say and less time worrying about what gear to use.

The photograph above is an example of this evolution. It’s not a street photo. It is posed and edited to convey the feeling of old age. I don’t plan giving up street photography entirely but I’d like do do more work like this.

Nice to be back with you!

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

  1. It’s always been about what you want to say and not about the gear John. Sorry to hear that the Fuji system didn’t fit your needs. I don’t know if you are on Facebook John but if you are email me a link to your page and I will invite you to the Fuji Buy/Sell group. I’ve had a lot of success buying and selling in that group. BTW great image.

I'd love to hear from you
