While I was looking at the Irving Penn show at the Met NYC museum recently, I realized I was not all that interested in his Rollei. I was pleased to see he used a Tiltall, like the one my dad bought me in about 1970.
I have not been on the RFF for a very long time, Stephen was kind enough to write and ask if I was OK.
I am, but I have recently been working on a 3D virtual story, and reshooting my architectural model of the area where I have my studio.
I probably owned more Nikon rangefinders than would define a sane man, but two Christies catalogs ago, they were all gone. I tried to fit into the forum, but ended up making the fussy members very angry because I kept deleting my posts when I later realized they were absurd.
I love images, as some of you know I have an MFA in media, and a BFA in painting. I got the big grants like the NEA, but now I am disappearing for a time into the real world, leaving this so-called Real Life and its leaders out of my brain.
I will miss many of the lovely people I have met here, and drop by if I need advice or thoughts on equipment. But I probably will not be reading "I will avoid Leica NJ from here on...
". I fell into it yesterday (first article I had read in months), and realized it was like my trying to read Fyodor Dostoyevsky in Russian. So much detail, I was impressed, but confused.
Have fun, trust me, you won't want to look back on not having fun. (I promise I won't delete this post until everyone has had a chance to view it.)
