Looks great Dale. Hard to believe we live so close to something so beautiful. Is this the white cotton of one exposure you were talking about or as we were discussing, did you try multiple exposures totaling a bit more than the desired exposure time? It is hard to see that much detail on a small screen.

Thanks for pointing it out, due to the circuitous manner to reach the place from River road, I had never explored the place.

Technical aspects: About a 5x7 center crop from the 8x10 negative (worked out just right with the 210mm lens.)
Single exposure f45 at 28 seconds. FP4 film in T-max developer 7 minutes in the Jobo drum. The 11x14 print was 160 seconds green and 6 seconds blue on Forte. In the future I'm going to develop the negatives for less time as I would prefer to print more on the blue end of the scale.

I printed my first 3 images from the event yesterday. I only had time to scan one before work this morning. You can see it in the Standard Gallery at the link below. If you're not a subscriber I'll post them on my website sometime tonight.

I just posted one of my first attempts at printing images from the gathering. This one was from the trip to Lakeview Cemetary. Jeff and Eva saw this one on the ground glass.

Looks good, Peter. I'm a little behind you guys. I finally developed the first batch of 6 sheets tonight - the rest will be done tomorrow, I hope. The roll film will be waiting for a Hewes reel and some practice.

I'm sorry Matt. I thought I posted a response. We loved having you here and seeing how many people were enjoying the the place. At one point there were four view cameras set up enjoying this little 1/3 acre pond. Dorothy squawked about brush in her way and I fired up the chainsaw. No effort is too great for a good picture.

We are staging a rematch: October 17, 18 and 19

The big maple tree to the west of the house is beginning to turn dark red. Dolly, Cindy, Savannah and I went for a hike in the park today. The girls (yellow Labradors) said, hey, when are all those neat people going to come back and throw apples for us into the pond? We forgot to tell you about Sylvan pond in the park, a half mile walk in, a mirrored lovely pond surrounded with deciduous trees. Those are the ones that turn colors aren’t they?

Well, we are going to stage a rematch at the Powers pond and house. All you folks that came a few weeks ago and those that wanted to, but couldn’t that weekend, come on over October 17, 18 and 19. Campers welcome, but no porta potty rented this time unless we get enough people on short notice to pay the $110. Campers can come in Thursday night if they like.

Come shoot the color, or if you are color blind like me, come shoot the stuff you shoot all year. Show up each day at 9 AM and 5 PM to plan, talk or go to dinner. Bring prints to show if you have any this soon. There will be a bonfire in the camping area. BYO chair and beverage. If you are camping bring “warmies”. The last three nights have had frost warnings.

In our debriefing after the first gathering, Dorothy had an idea we can implement if you like. I hiked the early comers all over the place showing them beautiful places to shoot. Panting, Dorothy suggested I pick a place, take you there for a few hours and concentrate on that. Those that don’t want to, can go where they were going to go in the first place.

For those that were here, I will select the Park parking lot in the town of Peninsula. There is a big open swamp on one side, the Cuyahoga River on the other. There are OH & Erie Canal Locks all around, a lovely foot bridge crossing the river, and vertical cliff sides to the river. If you can’t find something there, the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic RR leaves from the one room station next to the parking lot. You can catch a ride and find what does appeal.

Let us know who is coming. If you are new to the group PM me, and I will send you a questionnaire so we know where to send the bodies after the event. Come on by. We had a ball last time. We have never had guests who took such good care of the place and enjoyed themselves so much. We miss you already.

John, Dolly, Cindy and Savannah Powers

John,

Thanks for offering this. I'll try to make it for at least part of the time, but need to check with the rest of the family schedules.

As added incentive, there is a camera show (used gear sales and swap) at the Quality Inn at Exit 173 of the turnpike, I-80, on Sunday the 19th from 10am to 3pm. That's the exit folks used for John's place. The show is shrinking lately, but bargains can still be had. I didn't buy, but saw two large Packard shutters there a few shows back. Had to pass on a Leitz V35 enlarger with Focotar and both color and B&W modules for $400. Got an Isolette I for $7 in excellent condition. http://cleveland.craigslist.org/pho/863003427.html

I've had the usual unexpected delays in processing film, so haven't gotten any from the gathering done yet.

Count me in. On the 19th I'll be checking out the Photorama as it is still mostly analog. We have about 25% color change in the leaves.

I might make it. That weekend and the week following might be taken up by a trip with my sweetie. If it looks like that will happen, I might just go over by myself to do some shooting anyway. I'll let you know!

Nice invite John, but will have to pass as I'll be on my way up to the Ottawa River Valley in Ontario to meet with Joe Cornish, Sandy King, Les McClean and Bob Carnie for the Elevator "Invasion" (http://www.elevatorworkshops.com/) workshop. (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) :)

Here's hoping you all have a great time. Someone have an ice cream for me!

doggonit! I just got a job that requires me to work on Sundays. I may have to just come over for one day. We'll see how it goes.

Is anyone interested in an 8x10 enlarger or film holders? I could bring those along as well - (pm me)

the chain saw? that was great, John!

Eva & I are trying to work in a visit - we would love to see the fall colors of penuchi, black cherry and mint chip again!

I will report in as the schedule firms up.

John-According to my Palm-Pilot your Museum show starts Weds 15th?(Elaborate) It either moved or my Palm-editing is not as good as it used to be. Found this Online:

Friday October 24, 2008
Opening: Building America's Canals
East Boulevard Complex

Come in and learn all about a historic form of transportation with this hands-on exhibit for children and families that explores the history and technology of transportation canals that were built in 19th-century America. John Powers uses a special 7”x17” camera to create stunning studies of the Ohio & Erie Canal today - on display at the WRHS from October 24 to mid-January.

Thanks Paul. Not your fault. There was a miscommunication with the museum. I had been told the 14th. It was not to rush my work, because my thirty prints were due and delivered on Oct. 1. I saw that posting one hour before we sent the show card to the printer. A little fast shuffle and back in business. Show opens Oct. 24th and goes to Jan 15th. There are events linked to the Canal exhibit all that weekend that I want to attend. That was another reason for scheduling this event a week earlier.

The show itself is really three shows. There is a touring museum show about canal building. The Western Reserve Historical society is going to show historic photos from their large collection. Then they are going to show my thirty 7x17" images of the canal and its environment today. That is part of the same series that I have been working on to build a 100 pictures for a book through the University of Akron Press. I am at about 70 images now after about a year and a half on the project.

Sick and busy at work.... No time to read this. I'll double check the dates for the "reunion" and your show, john - when I have some time tonight or tomorrow night. Both sound great! All the best. Shawn
