DAVE VORLAND: It Occurs To Me — Cameras On Parade V

Here’s the final installment and photo (above) in my series documenting the cameras I own.

This one — a Canon EOS 5D Mark III — is the best of the lot. Also shown are my favorite lenses: 50mm, 24-105mm and 70-200mm (here with a 1.4x extender).

They have given me much pleasure and are destined when I can no longer use them to go to my daughter, Kristi Vorland. She is herself a fine photographer, a graduate of the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Mont. Three of her framed prints hang in Dorette’s and my place in Bloomington, Minn.

Kristi has in addition to her own equipment at least one antique film camera I’ve already passed on to her. I used it back in the early 1970s, when as a very young instructor I was teaching a class in photography at Saint Cloud (Minn.) State University.

She will be accompanying Dorette and I to Norway in September. I can’t wait to see the photographs she creates.
