Sometime in the last few months, I subscribed to the Analog.Cafe newsletter. Analog.Cafe is a weekly film photography blog with essays on art, travel, and culture, analogue cameras, film, history, and photography techniques. The photographs in a recent article by Stefano Fristachi, an Italian photojournalist who lives in Barcelona, reminded of the British West Indies.
I enjoyed reading Taking the Perspective of a Casual Photographer, an old f-stoppers article by professional Nicco Valenzuela. Nicco describes the casual photographer as:
These are hobbyist photographers, often with an unrelated day job, but would always seek opportunities to go out and take pictures. They may not be taking photos professionally but many of them are actually more passionate about the craft than most.
I think I fit that description.
Tonight’s dinner and company at the Brick Farm Tavern was excellent as usual.
