The image on top is what the camera saw; I only pointed the camera and chose when to push the button. Nothing more. Some call this "digital capture" or "straight" photography.

Not for me. It is more like the charcoal sketch the painter makes on the canvas before applying the oils. It is the background, before the expression is laid on.

Canadian Sunset



Just past seven in the evening yesterday, sitting in the backyard with a glass of red wine, watching the sun set in the West. [We are 75 miles south of the Canadian border of British Columbia, where wildfires have burned over 600,000 hectares of land this summer, making it the second worst wildfire season in the province since records started being kept.]

The picture was made with a 300mm Kilfitt lens that I purchased new about 1961 at a department store in Lincoln, Nebraska, for $130. It has been mounted on Leica, Hasselblad, and now a Pentax K-1 digital camera. [Only manipulations were made by nature, not computer.]
