Cape Fear

I should probably mention my so-far-wonderful holidays ... Barb and I saw Hilton in Winston-Salem Monday night. I went back yesterday and after doing the present thing with my mother and sister, and after reading the first third of LOOKING FOR ALASKA, I went out to Elliott's Revue to talk to my ol' friend Phil. We talked about movies, theater, music, humans, philosophy, tonal consistency, poetic inconsistency, and a few other things, and it was exactly the kind of talking I enjoy.

But instead of spieling more about holidays, I'm going to mention photography. A few of my freelance articles have been published with photos I've taken. But I'm pretty sure I just got my first credit for a photo-as-photo-and-only-photo in a dead-tree publication. So if you pick up the second edition of NORTH CAROLINA AFIELD: A Guide to Nature Conservancy Projects in North Carolina, you'll see (among many other things) my photo of the Cape Fear River. It was a pro sale, even, but I chose to donate the fee back to the Nature Conservancy, who do all kinds of good things to protect and preserve nature.

No Country for Old Men? Good. I'm Not There? Not.

I never considered myself a photographer, but I thought I did OK with film cameras. I've still got my manual-everything K-1000, built like a tank. And I took some decent photos with little point-and-shoot film cameras (with nice lenses) too, although it felt weird to give up focus and exposure control. So why am I having such a hard time adjusting to digital? I've got a Panasonic TZ-1 and the results look way too ... mushy. I can't quite wrap my head around why that is, though. Sure, it's not some swank high-end digital SLR, but.

This post brought to you by the terminal but.
