I'm expecting a package today. Actually, two packages... first, the present for my wife for Mother's Day that is five days late even though I paid for next day shipping; and second, my new camera. This could turn out to be a pretty fine day... unless UPS messes up again.

My previous post of the "Veiled" woman was shot with film. Some days I have trouble deciding which medium I prefer. On this day I wanted to shoot both just to see which result I would like better. The film process takes time. Shoot... lab... wait... pickup... scan... done. The digital process is different; quicker on the front end but extremely time consuming in the post production. You can work on a digital image endlessly! So which do I prefer? Each medium has its merits, and it's impossible to declare an undisputed champion. Each medium is a tool to get the job done. In the end, it's up to the individual to decide.
