Past spring

This is a picture from my archive taken in 1996 of wildflowers in North Carolina. It was shot with a Canon DCS5000 digital camera. One of the first of it’s kind. The revolutionary 3.4 mega-pixel camera retailed for almost $12,000. It used a CCD sensor that was a little more than 1.6x and a fisheye lens was required to get any kind of wide angle shot. I would have never imagined 15 years later my camera phone would produce better quality images.
