Have a beautiful weekend

Archival scan

These two Kodachromes date from the middle seventies and were shot upstate New York. This was a so called yard sale but most of the stuff could have been generously names as junk.

Milford, PA

Here are two more iPhone images. This is a lovely town on the Delaware River bordering New Jersey. Although no true professional photographer will ever admit that a smart phone is as good as a camera -they are not- they do provide a facility of use that beats cameras. This is in the area of portability and readiness of usage. Not even the most compact point and shoot will afford this. At any rate, when the light is not very challenging, one cam make nice images wit these phones that you always have at hand.
