Juzno:  And what would that be?

Churchill:  Churchill, of course.

Taking My Time

Enjoying the California weather with the New Zealand wine

Shot on iPhone 7 plus.
For the longest time I have been a red wine drinker.  My favorite was a Cabernet Sauvignon.  And then I switched to a Merlot.  Lately, I have been more of a Pinot Noir drinker.  I drink it with food or just by itself.  Then Rose brought home a Sauvignon Blanc the other day.  I always thought it was a so-so variety.  Until we tasted the Matua Sauvignon Blanc.  The 2016 is good.  It has a scent of citrus and the aroma is delightfully fruity.  A great wine for a nice late winter in Southern California.  I think I'll be stocking up in time for Spring.

Right now, the weather is gorgeous.  But tomorrow we are headed for a big storm.

Cheers.

I think it's been over a year since I last posted on Instagram.  I was tired of the you-scratch-my-back-and-I'll-scratch yours environment.  I felt that my art was being cheapened.  The same reason I have deactivated my Facebook account.   Yet I realized I needed to have a wider forum where I can share my work.  Magnum Photographer Matt Black once said that "as a photographer, you have a moral obligation to to publish your work and reach as many people as possible."  I thought about this, and I think I would be willing to give Instagram another try.

If you can indulge me for a bit, please check my posts on this link and let me know what you think. Cheers.

Loving the 2014 Pinot Noir

Another Test Shot Using the Carl Zeiss 80mm f2.8
Dear Line 39, 

Please consider me a big fan of the Line 39 Pinot Noir.  We drink the wine almost every day.  My wife and I have been stocking up on cases of this wine.  

I freelance as a photographer.  The other day, I was testing how my vintage Carl Zeiss 80 mm would work with my Canon 5d mark ii.  Years ago, I had used the lens on my Hasselblad 500CM, a fine medium format film camera.  I thought what  would be a better test subject than my favorite wine bottle of the Line 39.  I so love how the result came out that I want to share the photo that I took. I hope you will approve.  

I am aware that this may sound like a pitch.  But I have no expectation.  I simply want to share my love for your Pinot Noir.  

Keep up the good work.

Best,

Juzno Man
