My Gear

Gear is something many photographers covet or merely use as a means to an end. The chase for better cameras, lenses, and gadgets rarely leads to better photographs unless the photographer gets out and uses them. If I were a rich man I might have a more diverse bit of gear and certainly newer digital gear. But I find I only shoot occasionally so I do not need to invest in latest and greatest. If a wealthy benefactor would like to bequeath an inheritance, I would not turn them away.
