The photograph itself doesn't interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality.

Zoning Out, Sorry Ansel...wrong Zone...

Its an amazing that is. Going through the formative years, then you get married, have a child, your child has a child making you a grandparent! EEEK. Where did the time go. Ok the prior was a tad cliché to say the least. What am I getting at is that I think for myself that living the past 57 years, and having been involved actively in photography for 47 of those have made me possibly a tad more observant than someone who has not been blessed by being bitten by the photography bug. I tend to stare a lot, gazing quietly…some may take this as A) He has had a seizure, B) He has dozed off and forgotten to close his eyes…again, or C) He is in the “Photo Zone”. Well folks MOST of the time it is C as the correct answer. (At times I will admit it might be B.) I observe! At times wishing that I had a camera with me. I think of how cool it would be to have a chip implanted and a USB port in my ear to plug the PC into to download the images I see throughout the day and have captured through my eyes (which are actually Schneider lenses!) Wow, would that not be nifty…ahhhh..dreamin again. For those that say; “Hey you’re an old film/analog dinosaur, well you are correct but the door to open and insert film sounds too painful, whereas a USB port in the ear…kinda like brain tickling with a q-tip..just sayin.

Yes, you are a dinasaur, but I would ask for your opinion on a piece a work before many others. It's because, Schneider or not, you got those eyes!
