Photographers are always searching for the perfect lens. The lens that has the right "sharpness." It's a futile search, one that's not worth the effort.

Abandoned farmhouse and buttercups.

Every camera is a miraculous thing. A connection to your soul. A device that allows you to slice a part of your perception and share it with others.

I love the angularity of farm buildings. Planes rush toward each other. There's an artistic geometry.
