The original intention of wearing a watch rolex replica is to keep abreast of the moment, even though the phone is very popular, and many people abandoned the watch, but in contrast to the phone, the watch breitling replica is still relatively convenient. For example, when you want to know the time to ride a bike, dig the phone did not look at the convenience of the watch. Perhaps some are not allowed to bring mobile phones into the occasion, with a watch replica watches to grasp the moment has become inevitable. People who wear watches will also give people a strong sense of time and power. Time and strong sense of dealing with people simply make people work more simple, successful.

Photography

 

I have been seriously interested in photography since buying my first camera (a Russian Zenith 'E') in the early 1970's.   I still have the negatives from the very first roll of film I shot - in black and white using Ilford FP4 film - the prints processed in a local photographic shop.   I moved on to better cameras - a Canon TLb and Canon AV1 - and, after acquiring the basic equipment, learned how to do my own developing and printing in a tiny makeshift studio in my little flat in Central London.   Many important lessons were learned, the hard way!   Initially I worked in monochrome (including Ilford XP1 - remember that?!), then moved on to colour negatives, slides and, ultimately, producing Cibachrome prints from Kodachrome slides.   I still have every negative and slide I produced over the past thirty odd years, and it is a retirement project to scan and index them all.......   Digital technology may have taken over from the old chemical processes, but those slides and negatives are part of my creative development - my 'back story', if you like.

 

In 1997 I was one of the early adopters of digital photography, buying my forst digital camera - a Sanyo VPC1 - which was pretty advanced for the day, having 640x480 pixel resolution (one third of a megapixel!), but no screen and no memory card or removable data storage.   I am now on, I think, my 10th digital camera, a Panasonic Lumix FZ100.   The camera plays a very important part in my artistic endeavours - I use it as a kind of scrapbook, to record scenes and ideas for later working in the studio.  Some artists I know despise the camera and refuse to use one, because they feel it artificially influences their work - I think that's a bit Luddite!   I also use a scanner extensively in my work, mainly to digitise my artwork for the web and for reproduction.
