Koyaanisqatsi

It must have been four months. Four months since I stumbled on this word. It’s Hopi, means “life out of balance”, and its existence so neatly packaged our – my – impression of being. Though it outlived my memory of the article that bore it I filed away somewhere, dormant – until I made this picture.

The D40 and I

My “user” is a Nikon D70. It has its limitations, but years have slowly put them into the “Understood and Anticipated” category. Lately however, I’ve been looking for a high-quality low-light kit – a digital body that approximates the best from the rangefinder world without breaking the bank. My D70 won’t do – it’s lacking on a number of fronts.

Henry’s

Henry’s is the largest photography chain in the GTA, making it a convenient venue to test drive various lenses and cameras. High prices excepted, I’ve found the biggest turn-off to be the sales staff’s spotty quality; in many locations I’ve visited I’ve received poor – often wildly incorrect – information about Nikon equipment.
