O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
above the heavens.

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?

Psalm 8:1,3-4

Beautiful! Haven't been here in a while, but I have enjoyed going through some previous posts and photos. Didn't know that about the meaning of Kung-fu - used to love that show also!

You are a true artist, still using film. There are some things that digital just can't capture.

Oh - and your wife - a keeper for sure, going along with you on your VERY early morning jaunts!

sunflower, welcome back! Kung Fu was a must-see for me back in the day. You knew that David Carradine was going to wind up cleaning someboday's clock before the show was over.

I've partly stayed with film because of the more intense color saturation and sharper detail - that's just part of the style I've developed. The other reason I've stuck with film is the initial cash outlay to purchase digital equipment. I know that digital saves money in the long run, but that first hurdle can be a big one.

I will say that digital does have an edge when it comes to night photography. It's not subject to reciprocity failure on long exposures like film, so calculating exposure time is more certain.

And my wife volunteers to go along with me and I readily accept!
