I’ll admit it. I’m having a hard time getting used to the recent drop in temperature. We got our first blast of winter this last week and although it’s only -10 c, it feels much colder to me. Today it was a balmy five below and bright and sunny. I couldn’t be bothered to take a picture. The older I get, the less enthused I am at this time of year. I am patiently waiting for the day in mid-January where -10 feels warm. That’s what this climate does to you. It sucks all the warmth out of you and slowly gives it back.
So, here’s a picture from August when it was warm 🙂
Super saturated film fun. Which brings me to my next thing.
The Nikon hype-machine has been working full bore this last few weeks, releasing stunning teaser ads relating to their newest product. I loved the ads and hoped that I would love the camera. Those of you who pay attention to this type of thing know that this new camera was announced today and the internet is a flutter with comments. If you are curious, do a quick search for the Nikon Df. The haters gotta hate and the lovers gotta love. For me, it’s a big rousing yawn of indifference. It’s got some great features, it also lacks a place for me to load film. It’s a problem. I know that some amazing images will be produced with these cameras, I also know that I wont be one of the ones taking them.
Here are a couple of shots I’ve taken recently with my Nikon SLR.
I’m not a hater, I have a few digital cameras that serve me quite well. I just enjoy shooting film a lot more.
