40 Years Later

About 40 years ago, I bought my first 35mm camera. It was a Yashica with a 50mm f/2.0 lens. Had you told me then that one day I would walk into my backyard after work, take a few pictures with a popular consumer camera with a zoom lens and a teleconverter, process them on a desktop computer, and then publish them for the whole world to see – and all of this before dinner – I would have thought you were tripping on acid. Sure, technology has led to problems, such as phones that are smarter than their users, but overall, I think we’re living in wondrous times.
