On my walk down to the creek today I came across a little splash of purple. It was a small patch of Violets and it harkened me back to the first part of my photography re-awakening. I quit shooting film because I had rounded off the camera’s film advancing wheel and just never sought out another camera. Well that was till my Dad gave me an old HP 315 and from there I was hooked. The next camera was a Vivitar 8300 and that camera cemented my love for photography and more specifically nature photography.On my way back I spent some time using a blast-from-the-past, the Canon S3is, to grab a few captures. It was a challenge because my outside cat Butterfly follows me around like a puppy, a pushy puppy, but like a puppy none the less.
