I have begun an adventure in publishing some of the images I have collected and amassed over the last few years of this analogue ride. I was looking at some images tonight and remember that first thrill of developing paper negatives and film. The business of life and left field balls have jaded that somewhat....though I am still reasonably prolific and passionate. It will be nice to clear the decks somehow........to get that fresh feeling back.

Pentax 645n, album created on March 9, 2019
A dear friend literally gave me her beautiful Pentax 645 n. And some gorgeous lenses. I am a bit disgusted with myself about how nice it feels not to have to meter outside the cam. Exciting journey beginning as I get to know this camera.
March 12, 2019I have long held to the belief that there are seasons to my inner life just as there is a force that changes the physical seasons of my outer life that are way outside of my ability to control. Winter 2016 has been quite analogue. (the 2019 update is below :-) I have not sat long hours at the computer but more stood in my darkroom and played, cutting paper and working out how to use a new Goosen light meter. I would like to share some of this winters playing here as the world wakes for spring.
October 28, 2015There are times in the ether of cyberspace I have posted images and comments on those postings told me people had not really seen or understood what the image was, how it was made, and what it was made with. The digital life or myth pervades earth to the extent that people think you can't get film anymore. I don't mind, because they give me their beautiful old SLR's, so I go and shoot paper in them.
