old cars ... familiar, settled, comfy; like a really worn pair of sneakers or the holi-est jeans; sunken in; inhabiting it's surroundings; there to stay.

- lucky girl back from 8 1/2 years living in asia with my husband and three children, happily delighting in the visual treats offered me. I shoot film with a very old Nikon N65 held together with rubber bands ... Freshman year of college I finally got contact lenses. I was awed by how clear the stars looked during an astronomy lab. I have always been visual, but the ability to bring things into focus is such a delight. And when I capture that clarity on film I am so satisfied. It might be a piece or segment of something, the juxtaposition of textures or colors, or the light and atmosphere in a place that attracts me. I find film lends itself to revealing a real, complex, sometimes slightly flawed nature of things. I really appreciate the depth and tangibility of film. I am living in Hong Kong and am constantly exposed to an abundance of visual gifts. ... see more on my flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/film-fineartphotography/
