Hi Guys-
Looking forward to seeing everyone and some new work. As John mentioned, we made a trip to the "flats". I've been down a couple of times, and plan on continuing to work down there with the 8x10. As a Cleveland area resident, I'm a little embarrassed to admit I haven't really explored this part of the city. There's lots of change/construction going on down there, and I'm personally challenging myself to find some visual calm in a sensory overload of subjects. Here's a link for those with facebook to a few of my first efforts (work prints). I'd be happy to accompany anyone who wants to work there.

Peter,

Those are great. Our day together there was fantastic. Many great pictures to be made. My negatives are up. Prints to follow. Don’t know if I can agree with calm. Explosive pandemonium seems closer.

I may have to go to my boyfriend's art opening in Pittsburgh at the Silver Eye. They're having a competition for the Assoc Artists of Pittsburgh area. If not, I'll see what I can do.

Thanks John for the heads up :)

I will, but not for this one. We are traveling the very next week and I must work to get things done around the shop.

I am excited as well. We will be there!

I have been busy taking photos with the handheld cameras, just trying to get better at capturing people at parties, ..

Also went to the Aperture photo walk last weekend - it was fun, met a lot of younger film shooters, which is good. Very few had heard of APUG. Also helped my friends at Labwork obtain a bit more Internet presence. In addition to making a facebook page for them, I helped them become an advertiser on APUG.

I know this upcoming gathering is busy, but I am always up for going to the flats at other times.

See you soon.

Jeff

Jeff,

We just missed an opportunity to go together to the flats and shoot. Dolly and I went this morning (Thursday). A place to avoid on weekdays is the base of the new bridge paralleling the Rt. 71 bridge, out of down town, crossing the river toward the airport. We were escorted away from the base by a lady in yellow vest and hard hat who is the “public relations person” for the project or construction site. She wanted to protect us from the inherent dangers. Fortunately she does not do that on weekends. We went on from there to spots where no one present seemed to care.

Dolly sketches about as fast as I take 7x17 pictures. It is a slow but happy process.

I'll be doing a Lith print demo. There should be a lot of discussion about Lith printing and we'd love to have your contribution to the topic.

Looking like the Lith demo will be Sat. AM. I'll take each participant individually through the exposure and then development of one or 2 prints. Perhaps 15minutes per participant.

Those of you with Lith printing experience please bring your prints, secrets, and opinionated viewpoints on the topic!

Compliments to Dale. Off line he has really been organizing this presentation. I think it is really going to be great. Charlie has been so generous to contribute his traveling darkroom. This should be a demo we enjoy immensely.

It looks like it will start Saturday morning after we meet at 9:00 AM. Since the demo will be one on one with Dale, those not actually in that specific demo can stand around and harass (kibitz) or drive the 1.4 miles to the farm museum, shoot and come back for their turn.

For those knocking their knees together, squirming and worrying, the Porta Potty has been ordered. Contributions to the Porta Potty Fund Jar will be appreciated. Mat you do not need to pay the whole $111.00, but the gesture was appreciated.

I've not done lith before, so I'm also looking forward to the demo.
