A snowy day in blue…

Here’s the promised picture…I have been experimenting with the ‘manual’ settings and I shot this one at 1/1600, f5.6, and a film speed of 80 with the ‘sunlight’ setting. I took about 20 pictures at different settings until I got this one right.

I am looking for a new camera, however. This little Canon A530 only has two f-stop settings-2.8 and 5.6. That severely limits some of my potential.

Still, I like the shot.

She is happy as a lark and is surrounded by a crew of sober women which gives him the freedom he needs to get out of town. When he is not at home in Somewheresville, he is searching out the proper path to travel for happiness and joy. He is a photographer who believes in the digital age, but feels that film is still where its at. He has a darkroom and works in it. He is single and is in remarkably great physical condition for all the damage he has submitted his body to. His cardiologist is very happy. Johnnyboy is over the age of 35.
