California got some weather this week.
First and third shots are camera jpegs, just cropped and exported with a little sharpening. Second is raw with RPP64's Iodocont blue paper emulation; wiggly stars from handholding it on top of tripodded film camera.
Exposures were 30", 15", 30".

On the wing.
This week marked 6 years with Fuji.
After more than 10 years on film with an Olympus OM-1, 3 years of Canon P&S followed by nearly 4 with one of their DSLRs, and 2 years with a Nikon, these little Fujis took me back to the joy of photography. What had become drudgery became a joy again.

Read it and weep.
I see a face with an unhappy expression reading a book, with hands at bottom right holding the book. Perhaps a reflection of our present time: seems the more we learn about humanity's tendencies and behaviors, the more reason we're given to despair.

With summer officially here, I'm missing the spring weather a little.

I appreciate the warm welcome I've received; it's a nice vibe here and I hope to stick around a bit.
