One of my all time favorites
I started taking pictures when I was about 10. I received a Kodak Instamatic camera for Christmas that year, and my father had a simple darkroom set up in the garage. At times in my life I have been very active as a photographer, at other times, not. Digital photography has renewed my interest, being able to shoot hundreds of images and select only the ones I want to share. I have something over 36,000 digital images on my computer. Between the two houses there a a few thousand prints from the film era, and unless I tossed them in a moment of madness, several thousand black and white negatives. There are some gems hidden in the negatives.
Out of all of this there are a few dozen all time favorites, ones that I have printed and framed. The image above is one of them. This was taken on a mountain in Juneau Alaska. I love the way the water is beaded up on the leaves. There is a print of this hanging in my DC area condo.
Where did you take your all time favorite photograph?
