In 2002, I was shooting 35mm. I hadn’t even considered bringing along a digital camera, since I didn’t bring a laptop when I originally left with the Peace Corps. So all the photos posted on this blog were taken on 35mm and scanned at various points in time.

I arrived in Nepal with a Canon EOS Rebel 2000 and promptly lost that—or rather, had it taken from me. I replaced that after a couple of days with a Nikon F60 and a Nikkor 50mm f/1.4, a combination I used for 80% of the photos here. Here and there, I picked up secondhand cameras (a Canon AE-1 and a Pentax K1000 to name a couple) from time to time, but finally sold the F60 to purchase a Nikon FM3a, which continues to be my favorite SLR.
