In some sudden fit of temporary insanity, Liz gave her blessing--nay, encouragement!--to the purchase of an all-Mike camera, partly for tooling around Deutschland during the times where I don't get to be part of her elite viticultural circle, and mostly for trying to redevelop a long-dormant hobby.
I spent most of today going through the manual and taking a lot of really, really awful shots (digital is truly a godsend, since I don't have to spend anything to find out how much my SLR technique has suffered since, oh, 1995-ish)... But a couple turned out surprisingly well for day-zero monkeying around:
The one of Julia in the shadow/sunbeam particularly amazes me; she looks uncannily like a certain portrait of JFK. Maybe at some point I'll get some of my game back, and shots like that will be skill instead of luck.
