Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

From Kokoro #015 - Freedom.pdf

I see America as a scrappy country. Throughout its history, Americans have fought to preserve not only its freedom but the freedom of so many countries around the world. This image just seemed so perfect when I stumbled across this scene in the basement of the Alkabo School in North Dakota.

For many of us, the transition to digital involved a few rugged years. This image was photographed with a very early digital camera which sported a whopping six megapixel sensor. In theory, I can make a 9-inch print, but instead I suspect this will be resigned to digital projects only. Thankfully, the technology has moved on to the detriment of all of our pocketbooks, but to the improvement of our digital prints.
