Black & White

Colorado 

I have over 20,000 photographs stored on my computer hard drives. I sometimes think about what I want to post, I had an idea for today and then I started editing some photos I took in Colorado in November last year. Before I know it hours turns into many hours and the day is nearly gone. Between reading photography blogs, looking at others photographs and spending time learning Adobe Photoshop it doesn't take long before the day is over.

Those of you that follow my blog I'd like to say that I'm very grateful, I'm trying to post more regularly. I work a four day work week. Not exactly as easy as it sounds, last week was 54 hours. Saturday is my recovery day, Sunday my do things around home, and Monday all photography. Of course every minute I have free in between I am always doing something photography related. I'm definitely not complaining as I see myself as very lucky. This is not an easy field to break into with the thousands of photographers around the world doing the same thing. I just wanted you to know that I am grateful to have a fan base. Keep watching, my passion grows stronger by the day for both photography and the beauty that surrounds all of us.

 From the time I became interested in photography at age 8 until around the age of 15 all I took was black and white. That's about all I could afford as a kid. While my father was in the United States Air Force and stationed at Fuchu AS, Japan I learned how to develop my own film at the base hobby shop of Kanto Mura military housing complex which is no longer there. I had an old Kodak Brownie box camera, a Minolta 16 Model P subminiature spy camera which I loved and wish I still had & a Minolta 35mm Hi-Matic 9. This gave me three film sizes to learn with, 16mm, 35mm & 620mm. That should about date me! lol

I have always loved the look of black and white or monochrome as some call it. Thanks for visiting!
