A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

Sometimes these days low tech is a relief. Everything is everywhere all the time. The Metropolitan Museum, home of ancient Egyptian and Summarian peoples, has a historical costume exhibition where the whole point is to blog, on the spot, about what people are seeing/thinking/narrating.
Today I've included a photo taken from my window with a lens I built myself, from components I got from Edmund Scientific. Admittedly it is now mounted on a digital camera, but there is a comfort in the idea that we still might be able to do things all by ourselves without assistance and certainly without blogging about it. Oops...
