Ready to Take Off?

This is Gail...dressed to impress and rarin' to go! I call this shot "the Snooty Flying Nun", but that's the way it is in church productions aimed at the younger set---don't give an inch or they'll run you down! Gail spent years in Jackson, MI, my home town, as a sort of performance roustabout: when I first laid eyes on her she was on stage giving a "tribute to Spring".

A mistress of disguise, Gail also sang parodies about the computer age with a group that called themselves "Nerd Perfect". They let me be a fan, but that's about all, so I started calling myself the "Imperfect Nerd". Such is show business...

Now Gail sends me stuff from near Eureka, CA, and it winds up on the blog, as you have . If you wander on in further, you'll see that among her many varied talents, Gail shoots a mean picture but still claims she "doesn't want to be a photographer". Too bad, Gail... it's too late---you are!

Yup she is. A good photographer, too! :-D

In spite of protestations to the contrary.

She has a great eye.

She is very intent on getting "just the right thing" at just the right angle, and not overshooting. That comes from working with film, which makes mistakes expensive.

Yes, she's good that way. One of the reasons I switched to digital.

Digital is impossible to ignore, but don't some purist type photogs who make their own prints still swear by film?
