This photograph is one that I used as the model of the digital painting of the same name. You can see it on the Art page, Images 2004.
That painting was one of the first that I attempted. For some reason, probably symbolic, I added a flower growing out of the sidewalk. A digital camera would be ideal but my equipment philosophy is buy the best. Right now I want the Canon 11megapixel camera which costs nearly $6,000.00. Needless to say, I'll be patient. In the mean time I get by.
This photo was taken with my 50 year old Leica 35mm rangefinder camera and processed in Photoshop. It's a great camera, With the lens collapsed it fits in my shirt pocket and the shutter is nearly soundless.
