    I have enjoyed seeing your beautiful pictures and especially reconnecting with you this year. Happy Holidays. Hope to see you again soon.

    • Thank you, Gretchen. I think it’s really really cool to be connected again as well. When we gathered after the opening in Rhinelander, I looked around at you and Den, Josie and John and thought wow! We go back a loooong way. Incredible.

    Beautiful sentiments and image – fascinating reflections 🙂 Always good to strike a conversation with you. All the best Andy Kidd. PS. Santa bought me a new lens 🙂

    • Oh, thank you, Andy. I always enjoy our exchanges…sometimes hard to restrict to just a few lines. 🙂
      New lens! What did Santa bring?

        Santa’s Helpers must have seen me try a Fujifilm X-T1 with Fujinon XF50-140mm f/2.8 weatherproof zoom. Whilst I loved the clarity, camera and variety of lenses, it dawned on me that this is not the camera for me – yet. I love my Fujifilm X -100, two generations old now. Santa’s helpers therefore knew that with Granddaughter visiting, the lens for me was the tele conversion TCL-X100. this gives me 50mm equiv as well as the fixed 35mm equiv. Andy Kidd is SO old school!!

    • I cannot tell a lie, Andy…I had to go and look up both your camera and your lens converter mainly because I speak Canon. (Should have turned on the closed captioning for our technical conversation.) I have several lenses, but my second favorite is my 50mm prime…that works so beautifully for close-ups and wonderful depth of field. Will your granddaughter recognize you without the camera in front of your face? 🙂

  3. And thank YOU for your content, I’m really happy I found your blog and look forward to a new year of visual good. I don’t know anyone who so gently and respectfully can bring life in old barns, bring us so close we can almost tap on the windows or hear the wind pass through the tired walls. That’s quite something.
    My very best wishes back!

    • Well, you just made my morning and quite possibly my entire day. Thank you for such kind words. I cannot tell a lie (well, yes I can, but I’m not right now)–when I am taking the wood or the windows or such, I really do feel that connection between me and my subject and I truly want you to make that same connection through the picture.
      Okay, that either makes total sense or you are backing slowly away from the computer screen as you read. 🙂
