    This reminds me really distinctly of a photo I took when I was 16 or 17. One I was proud of. One of the first I was proud of. Playing with the concept of thirds. Golden ratios.

    I didn’t have access to fancy filters. HS Photography class with a loaner camera. A Pentax. My first SLR!

    My foreground was early winter cattails on the edge of a half-frozen pond. I lucked out and had a perfect day with a high, thin scrim film of high cirrus clouds in front of the sun. A natural filter.

    I shot three rolls of film that day and after I developed them I had 4 or 5 solid, decent shots and one really good one. That one good one looks remarkably like this, but in B&W.

    I kinda miss analog cameras and actual film and chemical developing. That mechanical “click”. The chemical stink, the red light, those cool-ass countdown clocks.
