If you’ve read the “About Greg” page, you know that I’ve been a Canon shooter for more years than I care to remember. I’ve always loved what I got out of those bodies and lenses – and still do. However, over the past year or so I became increasingly aware that what I was seeing in my mind was not what was appearing in the image. So…. for a variety of reasons I did something about 6 weeks ago that surprised most of my peers, and admittedly left me feeling a bit like I had left my baby on the steps of the orphanage – I made the decision to leave my Canon days behind and switch to Nikon! I can already hear the breath leaving the bodies of those friends and photography peers that have known me for some time – the ultimate brand loyalist has left for “the Dark Side”…. Well, I will never be one of those who disses the “other brand” so I will keep my reasons to myself. But I will tell you that what I have in my camera bag now is so much better suited to my style, and the images finally are a dead reckoning for what I thought I saw when I pressed the shutter.

I recently traveled to visit my mother, who at the age of 91 has begun to give way to dementia and was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I have some images from that visit that I may share in a while, but for now I need to keep them close to my heart. But needless to say, the job done by the Nikon D700 and the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8G brought a lump to my throat.

I wish you all a wonderful holiday season with friends and, most importantly, family. Peace….
