A bit of an unprecedented moment on this blog – the first (and I’m pretty sure only) image made on a digital camera.
As anyone who even remembers this blog anymore knows, this is a place for very specific work done a very specific way – a sustained look at the downtown of my town, rendered in black and white film.
But I’m including a shot made for my daily work, contrasted with the shot I made on my film Leica, to show the subtle differences there are when you use different tools. I really do think when you use different cameras you not only see and portray things differently, you yourself think differently before you even trip the shutter. And photography is nothing without realizing you’re using your heart and mind together, so with that I present two different views of the same moment…one on film from a small rangefinder and the other a workaday newspaper digital camera.

This is actually a picture made in 2011 (!) and remembered when I was digging through a pile of negatives recently for…ironically I don’t recall what.
It’s fitting for #TBT but also something that may happen a bit more in future weeks – not just because the winter approaches and it’s always a slow time for new pictures, but also that my filing is just woeful and I plan to tackle a large accumulation of negatives/contact sheets and put them in some semblance of order.
