This week I got a number of emails from former
I wrote some time ago about the progression I took in utilizing the digital technology of the times for work I was doing. The first digital camera I owned was purchased to allow me to shoot photographs for the Spokane Police Department website, which I was webmastering at the time. I had read about something called the Epson Photo PC camera, and I went to one of my bosses at SPD to ask for a city purchase of that camera for SPD, so I could use it on the web. I was denied that request, but I bought the camera anyhow for my own personal and family use. Although the camera was cumbersome, boxy, and had little memory, its valued uses were easy to see.
Next came a Nikon digital camera (CP 900e), which was better than the Epson in every way, and using it for the websites I was developing at the time was easy for me to do. I remember shooting photos of our infamous “ice storm,” for the Spokane PD website, and it became so easy to shoot and publish online soon after an event, the feeling was amazement. I still could not get my boss to let me purchase the camera (for SPD’s website), so I bought the Nikon for myself, and for the past number of years, the quality of the digital cameras has never dropped in quality. Each year they get better, and the uses are more pronounced.
Yes, we live in a beautiful place. Having these electronic systems available for photography, makes it easy (well, sorta) to show others about our area and our community. Stay tuned, more
A very Merry Christmas to all of you visitors to the Spokane Night Scenes website!
Even though I have only visited Spokane WA. I really enjoyed my stay there. My wife's father was in the United States Air Force and they lived there for a number of years. She always wanted to go back so we went and visited in October 2005 and then again January of 2007. I actually proposed to my wife when we visited in October 2005 right in riverfront park and recently got married this past October.
The reason I tell you this is because you are right. It is great to see pictures of all the places we grew to love and we really appreciate it. Keep up the good work!
