Not much time for photography these days — but yes, I am still alive. Taken on expired Ilford XP2 Super with the Rolleiflex.

Photography and Painting
Another great post at The Online Photographer — this time showing what photographers can learn from landscape painters. Worth a read for anyone interested more in form and composition than in megapixels or line pair resolution.
