Those of you who know me well know that I like my camera magazines. A lot. Reading them is one of my favorite things to do when I am in full relaxation mode. And my favorite magazine of the many that come to my doorstep is Digital Camera World. So, I was thrilled to see one of my images published in the latest issue! Even better, the image that they chose is among my favorites and hangs in my living room. It is of a busy Manhattan Street outside of Radio City Music Hall on a soaked and blustery January day. Looking at old pictures always triggers memories for me…almost as much as listening to music. I love that I can remember exactly how I was feeling and what I was thinking while I was trying to get that shot (it took about an hour to get right). Thanks to the folks at Digital Camera World for sharing the image with their audience and continuing to publish such a fantastic magazine.
About two weeks back, my dad cycled from Portland to San Francisco. On his last rest day we caught up on the Embarcadero over lunch and under sunny skies. I feel really lucky to have such a healthy and happy father who can still bike circles around me. I also really like showing him off on the blog, because dad gave me my first great camera, a Nikon film SLR, way back when I was in college. It’s really cool that now I get a chance to help him out with his Canon G12. But I still cannot explain the shoes. Maybe I’ll appreciate them more when I’m older. But I doubt it.
