    My previously home-based business, has moved to larger quarters. The office is now my dedicated studio.

    Not having to move the living room furniture around, and set-up and tear down all the time will hopefully make up for getting up earlier and packing a lunch on work days.......

    A dedicated space is a special thing.

    One of the things I enjoy most about a dedicated space is the ability to experiment quickly when an idea crosses my mind.

    Weird, eh? It is correctly oriented if you click on it.

    The first i-thingy snap I uploaded was sideways in the the thumbnail, and right side up after clicking, but stretched and distorted.
    Took a new i-snap, and it's upside down in the thumbnail, but correct after clicking, with no distortion.

    Don't tell me how to fix it. It illustrates why I stick to film and the darkroom. When something goes horribly wrong in analog, I can figure it out (doh! Don't turn on the lights when the box of paper is open!), or come on APUG, ask, (why are my negatives all mottled?) and get an answer, quickly, that I can understand.
    Once computers and such devices are involved, even once I find someone half or a third of my age to help me, I can't follow their explanations, and NO LONGER WANT TO.

    Computers are the only thing that have made me weep with rage since all the nastiness with my ex 20+ years ago. I stopped giving computers that power a couple of years ago. I stick to basic stuff, and if something doesn't work, I drop it. If it's important, I seek help. Seems like less and less of it is.

    Time to get up and burn some film!
