Passion has been renewed for an old hobby of mine - photography. For the past five months, I have been acquiring some gear, joining some forums, and shooting a lot of film. The spark for the renewal flared in April of 2009 when my first grandchild was born. My daughter - with a photo in mind I took of her as an infant 31 years ago, and which hangs in her house - asked me to shoot Zella in black and white a few days after she was born. So I broke out my old Praktica LTL and shot some bw400cn. Then came photobucket. Then came some mechanical issues with the Praktica. Then came web searches for a possible replacement. Then came the renewed interest in gear ... and the forums ... and dozens more grandchild shots ... and street shots ... and fish camp shots ... and now I see light everywhere.
Which goes along grandly, I recently discovered, with the Light of the world. He is so good, indeed. John 3:19.
