Change to 2023

Oh, what a year on so many levels.  I retired and then unretired and started down a different road taking images of a rugby team.  I had never photographed a professional team and was ignorant on so many levels of both the game and how to take sports shots.   Yet, to address my obvious deficits, I asked questions and researched.  I figured out how to make my Nikon Z7II work for me and dealt with its obvious deficits. I loved photographing sports almost as I have always loved playing them.   Some of these images will appear in my galleries in the future, for there is an art to good sports photography that I am starting to grasp.  

My best landscape photography took place during the summer when I hiked in the Catskills and pursued my Hudson River Project.  I did manage to get a number of strong images that depict that region's elegance, and I hope pay homage to Thomas Cole, Frederick Church, Albert Bierstadt, and many others who were part of that movement.  I went to museums to view their works and read books on them too.   

At the end of this year, however, while photographing in Europe, our rugby team, I suffered a fall while photographing in Lisbon and broke my ankle one month ago.  As I write this all that time later, I am still not allowed to put any weight on my foot, and the swelling is still extreme.  I have my "Walking Boot" on though it is still a non-walking boot, to be honest.  I almost don't go out, and with my metal plate and screws in my leg, I only hope that I will walk normally again and be able to carry my camera gear on my hikes.  

I leave you with one of my images from the Catskills.  Jamie, December 31, 2022
