I'm back! In the flesh, that is. This year, Santa spoiled me rotten with a new camera and these photographs are my first attempts at an improved aesthetic. I opted for a black and white ensemble to really see what this baby can do because let's face it, any old camera could capture a red sweater and the brightened complexion that goes with it (which is why I own several such sweaters). Some landscapes will follow but until then, what do you think of these, friends?
