It was fifty years ago that I processed my first roll of film. I clearly remember being smitten by the process and the real magic that occurred in the developing tray. The darkroom gave me a glimpse of time past. I was excited by the prospect of seeing that image in the rolling liquid. The satisfaction was overwhelming.

I feel that excitement today when a big print rolls out of my inkjet printer. Forty two Megapixels, HDR, Lightroom, Photoshop, pigment inkjet printers etc. can't keep me from feeling the joy of Photography. The exhilaration in finding an image that lives up to my Vision...An image that "Works" has been my goal in making Photographs.
