Ode to Medium Format Foto
The opening of a viewfinder...
The click of a shutter...
the sound of a winding reel...
All those late-night wanderings
of the briefest of moments,
frozen into the focus of my lens,
now imprinted on my film
make love with my scanner...
The romantic timelessness
of medium format film photography,
accented by its meditative approach,
brought my love of photography
to a whole new level.
The connectedness to surroundings,
deepens my sense of oneness
and having just 12 images on a roll of film,
fine-tunes me into seeing "that something."
back there, even further, beyond the obvious...
