the second post (the dad)

Exactly 1 year and 2 months ago my beautiful wife Melissa created one of the greatest works of art I have ever seen, my son Elliott Scout Pfister.                                    His name was a combination of one of our favorite photographers Elliott Erwitt and Scout was my childhood nickname given to me by my dad . Well it was one of many nicknames. Most of which I prefer to keep to myself.

He is perfect. He has changed the way I look at the world. Nothing else seems to matter as much any more. I just hope I will be half as cool as my dad was.

More of this little dude and my Melissa to come. As well as a visit from our furry friends tomorrow!

On to the techie stuff.

I just grabbed a few images, from the hundreds of him. While digging, I thought it was pretty cool that I had found an image of me taken in 1969 with a polaroid land camera. I made the image below with the same camera and film type a couple months back. Mine has been converted by alpenhause kamera werkes to accept pack film and 4×5. Running around with a 4×5 rangefinder making hand held images at will…super sweet! More images from this sweet machine to come. stay tuned! The others are from the always trusty Nikon D3x or the F5. I just can’t seem to step away from that beautiful four letter F word. Details below images.

These first few posts are just meant to be an introduction. More tomorrow. Thank you for stopping by.
