On the solstice, I walked the Flume Trail above Dzantik’i Héeni, flounders creek (Gold Creek). Enamored of my newest tool—a 3MB digital camera with 10x zoom, I took about 50 photos (around 5 times more than I’d have been willing to spend on film), selected the best, and spent the next couple days drawing. I intended partly to demonstrate that old and new technologies could coexist. Granted, they can, and probably do for many artists. For me though, the ratio of drawing to photography has continued to decline.
