Artist's Description

My Nikon F bought in 1964 with a 105mm f/2.8 lens. I could only afford one lens and the 105mm was my choice as it was great for beauty head shots. Alongside it is the D3 that I purchased in 2008. It is also sporting a 105mm focal length lens. This time a VR macro. Who would have guessed in 1964 that one day there would be no more film. We would be shooting using a bit of plastic that held hundreds of exposures in it’s own memory on a camera that had it’s own computer built in.. Take that man to the funny farm.

105mm is still my favourite focal length for head shots after 44 years, so at least some things never change.
