Everything will be okay.

Social distancing has actually made my neighbourhood feel a little more… neighbourly.

Memory Lane.

My wife was tidying the file cabinet this evening, and she came across a folder with some interesting contents in it — contents that I had long forgotten about.

Specifically, there were some receipts and warranty cards from Nikon, from 2004.  Your see, in that year, I bought my very first digital DSLR, the Nikon D70 along, with its kit lens, the 18-70mm.  That started a crazy journey for me that I’m still on, and — interestingly — the path has recently wound its way back to Nikon.  Through it all, I never sold my beloved D70 and 18-70mm combo.

They are, in fact, the only pieces of photographic gear that I’ve never sold.
