Well it was 0 degrees, overnight during the weekend in my area of Canada. We certainly get the flowers later and snow earlier than some parts of the US. In a time long, long, ago I got started in photography with one of the first cameras with a built-in lightmeter. Later I got into the first videotape recorders with 2 inch reel to reel tape and gigantic television cameras. Then it was one of the first digital cameras with a resolution of 300 by 200 pixels. I also started creating computer animation shorts on the Commodore 64 computer. Primitive does not begin to describe some of these experiences. Now I am happy to be with multiple cameras: film and digital, computers, Photoshop and PaintShop Pro, as well as classic camera filters in the form of software plug-ins. Great to be here. skieur BTW skieur is not mispelled. It is French.
