Roberto Begnini's character in Down by Law, a drifter from Italy with a limited grasp of English, spends the movie repeating his favorite phrase in this language: "It's a sad and beautiful world." When I get it right, that's what I hope my work is about.

Thanks a lot for visiting! I'm still learning from the great artists I'm encountering here on flickr, so thanks also for your comments.

Technical geekery (gear acquisition syndrome):

I shoot film because I like the look, and I love how it makes me slow down and think about the shot I'm taking. And while I used to spend much more time on RAW processing and editing, now most of the processing I do is to get the scan to look like the slide.

These days I do most of my shooting with a Nikon F100 and a 28mm lens. I especially love slide film. Day to day I tend to have my Olympus XA or a Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim with me in a coat pocket or my backpack.
