Kodachrome..

There was an era of fond memories for me that I experience in Kodachrome. There was no better rival to this day, the way it captured that golden hour light.

Better Homes & Gardens was always on the prowl for opportunities to get their photographers out there. They had geniuses, just like at Life. Geniuses who wanted to work. Their garden and architectual photography through the fifties and sixties have been my constant companions.

There is just something about light that is so hard to put your finger on.

There’s something very special that first really cold day of the year. When its minus 20 at the edge of nightfall and the light is fast slipping away. You stand with the wind at your back and still you feel the icy chill right through your clothes. The pale weak light of the afternoon gives way to an inky blackness and a swirl of snow and you begin to notice how fast the temperature’s dropping once again as it makes its way to minus 30.
