Today's Snapshot of the Film Community is going to be a little different. It is not going to be an interview like usual. In fact, I am not even going to ask this person questions. I will simply let him tell his story. Let me explain. One of the first videos I created on my… Continue reading A Snapshot of the Film Community – Lee Dudley and How the Nikon F Took Him from Hell to Heaven During the Vietnam War
I have only one neighbor who puts up halloween decor on her lawn. I didn't grow up celebrating holidays so I guess you could say I am kind of drawn to them now. Not so much their meaning, but more so the traditions and celebrations they include. Nikon FIlford HP5 400 I have taken pictures… Continue reading One Shot with Aly – Halloween
