Welcome to the many good people who have added me over the last few days. I do hope my photos do not disappoint!
This is one of my all-time favorite photos. It was taken quite a while ago, during the summer of 1993 with the venerable and beloved Canon AE-1 given to me by my father, along with its 50mm f1.8 prime lens. I packed that camera all over central Japan for two years. It was heavy, manual focus, manual winding, manual ISO, and absolutely bulletproof. ^_^ I think this explains why I don't often rapid-fire photos with my current Canon 50D. My fps with that beast was about 0.5! :D
Unfortunately, the details as to f-stop (probably 1.8), shutter speed (probably very long) is lost. I believe it was taken on Kodak Ektar 100 film, but I don't have the negative with me at the moment to verify. I recently had the negative rescanned at high resolution by the good folks at Nichols Photo here in Salt Lake City, Utah. I highly recommend them for their excellent service and professional results!
