My 1000th Post

This post is the 1000th on my photo blog since its inception, so I wanted to pick an image that fit the occasion. This image from recent day in Banff works for me: it reminds me that photography is a journey as much as a destination, and that the destination will always be partially hidden, awaiting discovery.

Banff 4: Black and White versus Colour

When I was in Banff in terms of film I was shooting black and white, not colour; the only colour images I shot were with my iPhone, so here is a comparison of almost the exact same image, one taken with my Rolleiflex, the other with my iPhone. I know colour is more popular these days, but there is still something about black and white that makes it my “mother tongue” as far as photography is concerned.
