    Dear Sunim,

    So happy to see these images. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to share them with us.

    So cool you have such a nice rig (Nikon d300) to make your images with too. Even when you were using the point-n-shoot though you still captured some compelling images.

    I hope you are well and happy.

    • Dear Roy,

      *grin* Always good to see you…and yes, your mala is *still* in the making. I need to finish the knot work.

      A note about cameras, because I currently have four in my locker at school: the old Powershoot (loved that little butter brick) is nearly dead, perhaps from over-(ab)use, but was the best 100 dollars anyone ever spent on a gift for me. The Nikon D300 is the school’s junior photographer’s camera; I’ll be stepping into the D700 in about two months when I move into the senior photographer position. My sense is that both the D300 and especially the D700 are more camera than I’m worth right now, but hey: our seminary needs shots they can blow up for the cover of the school magazine, and that D700 does the trick. The Baby, a Canon 500D (sold as one of the Rebel series in the US) and “my” camera, is one I get to use less rarely because right now taking pictures is a job, and I have to produce a lot of images for the school–that means using the school’s camera. The last is my dad’s 1970’s Nikkormat, the one I learned on back in highschool and is, in some ways, my favorite of the four. I have a roll of Kodak b/w in it right now as a test roll. It has a 50mm prime lens, which lets you get out of people’s way but still have a degree of personal intimacy in the shots; in short, a beautiful lens for portraits. The Nikon has an 18-200mm zoom, which does some quirky things, very few of which I enjoy. (What I want isn’t a 200mm zoom, but a 200mm macro…) The Baby boasts a quiet, fast 17-55mm, which does everything I could hope for except take macro shots.

      I might be the only one who cares about all this stuff; my classmates have told me so on more than one occassion. But if anyone else is interested, them’s the hardware I’ve got.

    Sunim –

    Thanks for the rundown on all the rigs. Pretty sweet if you ask me. A D300 *and* a D700 *and* a Canon *AND* a Nikkormat.. yoiks!

    I am doing well to contain (and conceal) my hardware envy.

    Regarding the prime lens… doncha just love em?? I have a 35mm prime that I really enjoy.

    Be well – and thanks again..
