Ever set time aside to take jaunt through your own photographs? I like to do so when I'm working on a new style, a new project or a new book of images.

An old favorite camera; consigned to history, coupled with an 85mm Cine lens.
A camera from that too short era when Sony made really fun cameras.
You know, before they made crappy cameras with good sensors inside.

These are fantastic. The OM-1 shot is my favorite. That’s the camera I should have used all along.

I love this post. My favorite(probably)is "Out on the Back Porch." So very Texas.Your Lady B. has such captivating eyes. I do have a question: what is your favorite focal length for portraits, and at that length, what is your favorite aperture? Thanks for your work and your blog.
