For my very first trip to Europe in 1970 my uncle gave me a used and beaten-up Nikon camera. In those days you had to manually set the lens aperture and the exposure time. I knew nothing about photography and just guessed at what to do. Without the instant images we now have on digital cameras, I didn't even know if the photos came out until I got back home to Toronto 4 months later. When I saw what my camera had produced, I was hooked!
I learned to develop and print black and white in the darkroom, something I actually miss today. But at the same time, I love the flexibility, the immediacy of digital photography and the power to play with your images on the computer.
I hope you enjoy browsing my shop as much as I enjoy putting it together.
I see you've added quite a few great items!!! I remember your Norway ones, and yes, as Marie says, they are wonderful -- that light! I also love your stained glass mousepad -- could you perhaps make it without Christmas 2012? I want to include it in a blog post on mousepads.
Thank you so much for your visit. Your store is full of some great photographs - my favorite is the Norway Reflections. That is beautiful. I traveled to Norway once many, many years ago and it is a beautiful country. I'd love to go back one day.
I really love your photographs, and the messages that go with them, awesome!
I have an old Nikon from the 70's too, and I love it, it is my favourite camera even now.
I think I know which abstracy horse design you said you liked on my page, it was one I made by cutting out one of my abstract paintings on the computer.
