DMC-365 focuses on creative photography equipment, techniques, and approaches.
I believe that equipment is part of the creative process. I use Leica, Panasonic Lumix, Nikon and other cameras, both digital and film.
On DMC-365, you can expect to see a lot of my own work, as well as work by others that I find interesting. I share methods, equipment developments, and creative approaches to photography.
Diversion From Lumix - Pentax MX, Spotmatic Cameras Go To The Car Show!

Pentax Spotmatic, Pentax 35mm f3.5
Last Saturday, I loaded up my Pentax Spotmatic and MX cameras with iso 200 film, and headed out to meet my friend James McKearney at the annual car show in Leesburg, VA. I also took along some Pentax lenses, the 35mm f3.5 and 105mm f3.5 for the Spotmatic, and a 50mm f1.7 for the MX.
As I've mentioned, this is a repeat event for me, so I was challenged to find something new and interesting to bring back. To start with, I decided to shoot some of the cars as they rolled into town. The shot above attests to the beautiful weather we had, and I think has that classic car and small town feel to it.

How often do you get to see a line of Cobras like that? Not often.
The locals seem to love the show, for example this restaurant crew that came out to see the cars...
