Digital Historica

This Digital Historica now dates back over the past 13 years.  In the digital age cameras come & go along with the programs which process their files.  When new, these files were processed with Nikon Capture, Kodak Photo Desk, as well as Adobe's Camera Raw before printing.  Now there is quite a bit less printing as images are viewed on one screen or another. The image files shown on this site are newly processed with Aperture 3. Each of the cameras used over the past 13 years have their own positives & negatives.  This sojourn will explore each camera randomly.
