My Sony 210

John Fraim A Short Reflection by a Past Regular It’s funny how things change. When I was a teenager, in the era of muscle cars, I might have retitled this article “My 350 Corvette.” I was into cars in those days. Now, I’m into cameras and lenses. I inherited the camera bug from my father […]

Hereditary, Final Scene

One of the most powerful scenes in recent film memory. The perfect match of the genius of Colin Stetson’s music of “Reborn” against the brilliant film footage above from the film Hereditary. From the movie soundtrack. Basic premise here, a new king of a religion is being crowned with the king slowly coming in realization […]
