Remember: only one image each week!Hi, Nikon folk. Last Wednesday of 2010! Have I really started 52 Wednesdays since my first? Impossible! Another grateful nod to Jose Angle, who started this fine tradition, and kept it up for so long. I normally try to post an image from the current week, but I'll take the occasion of looking back on the year to go back farther, and share one taken with an older Nikon film body. I wasn't yet digital in 2003 when I photographed an unknown (to me) tall drink of water and his Weimaraner about to head into the field at a hunt test. It was an early, foggy morning, and the handsome team's bearing caught my eye. Seven years later, I got an out of the blue e-mail from the fellow's girlfriend, asking to buy a print. His treasured canine companion had just died of old age, and she was shopping for a photo of his favorite breed to give him as a gift. And with the entire internet to search, she stumbled across this shot, of him, with that same beloved champion dog in his prime. I re-scanned the neg, printed on fine art paper, and delivered a framed version she could present to him as a Christmas surprise. Let this be a lesson: tag your photos when you show them online - you never know who will find them, and what it might do for someone's spirits. A happy new year to you all, and here's hoping you're looking back on - and forward to - a year of enjoyable photography. I hope you'll share one more shot with us, this last week of the year.
