Unreliable as usual... I am unlikely to make it as things now stand here at the ranch. Sorry to miss everyone again. Hoping for good weather and good light for all.

Lee (the one with no release from Hale Forms)

I've never been to Lakeview. Is it near the flats so you can do both in one day?

Here is the address for Lakeview Cemetery. 12316 Euclid Ave. Cleveland, OH 44106

That puts you on the edge of Little Italy. Lots of interesting photography and eating. About a block from Little Italy the other direction is the Peter B. Lewis building of Case Western University, Cleveland's only and interesting Frank Gehry design.

If your not familiar with the building, here are some images.

Chris. It is not far from the Flats, but you may not want to leave Little Italy, the cemetery, the food and Frank Gehry.

I'll be there by 8 Mat! Jeff and Eva. I think they open at 7:30.



Hey Peter, what time you starting at Lakeview? Would definitely like to join you!

In other news, it looks like I may only be heading over for Saturday. :( Count me in for dinner!

Peter B. Lewis is the founder/retired CEO of Progressive Insurance where Peter works. I'll wager he can tell you some stories.

Daniel und Silke are being losers and staying home this weekend. Guess I'll have to eat their portion of ice cream.

Rsvp for dinner on Sat. And breakfast on Sun.

Will get in late on Friday, crash in Montrous. Will scope out Hale early and if it looks like a cluster of tourists, i may cut my losses. Is anyone really set on going in? That is a deciding factor if others are going.

My cell is 937-294-3117

I've done my re-enactments a few years ago. It was fun then, using 35mm but the tourists & their children are a pain. It's a difficult thing unless you can corner someone into a portrait when no one is around to stare and ask silly questions.... imho ;) and then, there's the inevitable question. what do you do with the pics? However, I may change my mind and carry the hassy free-hand with the neck strap :0 eight-one-four-five-six-six-four-six-one-eight

Chris, Thanks for offering the Sinar bits. I donít know if anyone else here has one. Mine is an 8x10 and has spent much of its life here as a very expensive paper towel rack. I had bought it to expand on the 4x5 macro work I did for two series. Perhaps the next cold winter we have that will become attractive again.

Peter, Thanks for posting work from the Flats. That area has given both of us many photographic subjects for at least a year. If any of you havenít been there it is at least worth a look. It has changed every week we have gone there and been a great subject source.

Lee & Jeff, As I encountered, Hale Farm is not very tripod friendly. The only person I know who has gotten around this is Robert Pucket, who has shot 8x10 wet plate, essentially period one off portraits of the costumed actors in each building. He becomes part of the period show and canít reprint his images. Good luck with your efforts.

I asked for myself in 2008-9 when I had my 15 month, 30 image, 7x17 show at the parent museum, Western Reserve Historical Society. They had no interest in my continuing at Hale even though they liked and paid for the canal pictures.

Dorothy, You are welcome to come, with or without work. Next time though we want to see the gum bichromate experiments. I havenít heard anything from Dan and Silke. Jeff, have you heard anything? They are always fun and welcome.

I have two UV light source boxes. 11x14 from Bostick & Sullivan http://www.bostick-sullivan.com/cart/product.php?productid=30&cat=17&page=1
and an Ameragraph V28 1200 watt mercury vapor plate burner. I donít remember which I showed you, but I will be happy to show what I have.

Looking forward to the weekend and our enjoyable visitors. You all come. I have grass to mow, a porta potty to order and doggies to pickup from the Labrador sitter.

John

I think you probably showed me both, but it will be good to see them again.

We'll meet you there around 8am then. Any particular place we're meeting? Should we exchange phone #s?
