Have we really come all that far?
Oct 1, 2008

The following image was one on display at one of the old historical sites in Grand Teton National Park. As I stood and looked at this amazing, large print on the wall, I was struck once again by the fact that it is the photographer that makes the image -- not so much the equipment. Judging from the old vehicles in the background, this was probably shot around the early 1920's. The photographer was able to catch the action in this scene at a peak moment -- using 85 year old technology!

So I have to laugh at all the constant complaining and bickering on these forums about what is lacking from our current equipment, and wouldn't it just be great if we had this or that feature, etc., etc...

Talking doesn't produce images, using your equipment does. Regardless, this is a striking image in my opinion.

God Bless,
Greg
