Not long ago, I took my camera with me on an early morning walk along the river in Tuscaloosa. I regularly see the UA rowing crew out practicing, and occasionally see someone in a single shell. I spotted him that morning, and I’m especially happy with the way this shot turned out.

I recently picked up a Minolta Hi-Matic 7s rangefinder camera, and I’m having fun taking photos with film again. There’s a bit of a learning curve, and focusing is still hard with the dim old rangefinder, but I like the results I’m getting. (The photo in the header was taken the same morning, and you can see the rowing team going by.)
