Retail Tales – Filters

I used to stock a serious amount of filters. Cokin, Tiffen, Schneider B+W, and Satter econo-line. I would guess that in the hey-day I probably stocked 200+ different filters of all styles and sizes.

I even had a customer ask me to match a filter to the dark area at the top of his cars windshield! He liked how the sunset looked through it.

I will be working on a theme for this as I go along. But there is a strong possibility that this will have no direct stream, and just ramble aimlessly. And thats fun too!
