I was excited to find what remained of the gold rush era Swerer's Store when we first visited the Tuttletown area in 1975. We found portions of the front and a side stone wall standing, and we made this image from what had been the store’s interior.
What is one of the most prized possessions for most people? For many it is their family photographs. I recently read a blog post by Rob Pike about how most digital images today are not printed. He talks about how important it is to print the images you care about. Quoting from his post:
We, like most artists, started our journey of learning photography by photographing in the style of those who inspired us. Of course, like all artists in all mediums and genres, at some point we needed to break away from our "teachers" and find our own vision.
