Camera’s & Travel Photography

Over the years I have owned many camera’s. I have always been interested in photography and also optics and computers. An optical type machine I made in 1966, a kind of kaleidoscope projector I used at the Fillmore Auditorium for one of Bill Graham’s famous concerts. The solo “world trip” in 1974-5 was shot with one of the most advanced “automatic SLR’s” of its time... the Pentax ESII. Most of these old cameras are still around, but unfortunately some of the slides that were taken then have started to deteriorate. On the glazephotography.com site I hope to show a few good shots from each of the countries I have had the pleasure of visiting. Please see the Data Track (below) section for list of countries, dates and camera’s.

My first camera was given to me, It was a Fujica range finder camera. I used it in San Francisco in 1966. Before that my folks had a Brownie Hawkeye “box camera”. Actually I’m not a great photographer, maybe not even a very good one, but I like taking pictures.

Photography

Somebody said “Life is drawing without an eraser”. Photography for me is trying to capture something about the life experience and presenting that experience. A “picture image” without the eraser. Back then with film it was capture the image and then print it.  With digital we can do a lot more to effect the original image, we now have methods we can use to dramatically alter the image. Having this ability is a considerable responsibility for the photographer; sometimes a snapshot gets the experience best. Photography may never be “perfect” but it should remind us why we took the picture in the first place.
