good news... I won third place $400! in our Erie Arts Festival for my 'Rocks & Water' print. If I don't spend it all between now & then at B&H, I may be able to swing it. Maybe I should get a AAA membership too! ;)

Also, a friend of mine in Erie is getting rid of some of his darkroom equipment. He's willing to give it away. If not it goes in the dumpster. A 'Metorette" film & print processor that goes up to 20x24 prints, a Durst continuous color processor (8x10), a Durst Autofocus 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 enlarger (for $100), and some analyzers. If you're interested, pm me and I'll give you his number.


Congratulations on the big win Dorothy. Send Savannah the money and she will hold it for you here at the party. I hope someone is interested in your generous equipment offer. Are there any other goodies there? Thank you.

Very nice Dorothy! Hope you can make it to the gathering.

Any way your friend could give you a complete list with model #'s etc to post here?

As for enlargers, there are a couple near me, including what I think is an Elwood 5x7 (B&J Solar) that I should rescue from a likely trip to the dumpster, but I don't have the room even to store in in hopes of a future home.

Dorothy,

I have sent an email to the head of the Photography Dept. at University of Akron to see if they are interested. They have a color Lab and processors. I don't know if this fits their needs but I'll let you know what I hear. Thank you. Jeff & Eva donated the Omega enlarger last month. Hopefully the power supply will join it later this month.

thanks everyone. I had no idea how much one print could take out of me emotionally and spiritually. Of the thousands of negatives I have, it's probably one of my favorites. Do you guys ever experience that? Where you get really attached to an image?

As for goodies, John, another friend of mine has a 4x5 Wisner Technical Field Camera, just like mine. I think he's ready to come down on the price. Originally he wanted almost 2 grande, but when I told him ebay only wanted $1000, he might be willing to take that. It's a really nice camera.

Lee, I tried getting model numbers but didn't get very far.

Oh, and the guy with the Wisner still has an 8x10 Ellwood enlarger.

Dorothy,
I got an email back from Penny. She thanks us for thinking of her and U Akron but she doesn't think they can use the equipment. She suggests your friend list on Graig's list or eBay. Thank you.

Considering how much space we devote to ice cream in these NE OH gathering threads I thought I should mention there was an interesting article by Vera Kuzyk in NY Times, Sunday, June 28, 2009 titled, “Moving from Wall Street to an ice cream business, and not looking back.” I imagine you can look it up on line. I will send the text to Jeff & Eva. Two former J.P Morgan employees bought two Manhattan stores a year ago and have been in ice cream heaven ever since. “Before we could complete the purchase, I had to attend Haagen-Daze University in Minnesota. And then my life changed.” It has been working so well they intend to buy additional stores. I wonder if they have considered this location.

A local event coinciding with our dates might provide some very unusual street photography. Hale Farm is about four miles from us. Everything in Hale Farm is geared to a Civil War time frame. If anyone is doing wet plate this would be perfect, but it should work pretty well in silver as well.

“The Western Reserve Carriage Association, Carriages in the Park - at Hale Farm & Village featuring horse-drawn transportation and competition, admission $10 per person.
July 25 & 26

Saturday 11:00 am to 5:00 pm
Sunday 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm

This special weekend when you visit Hale Farm & Village you will see an era before the automobile as Hale Farm & Village is pleased to host Carriages in the Park. You will see and learn about 19th Century Carriages and get carried away during this unique weekend in the valley!”

Dolly’s mother is a past president of The Western Reserve Carriage Association. She has two horse drawn two wheeled carriages and a horse drawn sleigh, that were hand made for her by Amish craftsmen. If anyone is interested I am sure she would be happy to have them photographed, especially if you gave her a print.

Due to a slight change of plans and the generalized hyperactive state of 4 kids on a cottage lake, we were not able to make it over to Photostock. However, grandpa and grandma did make home-made ice cream for the kids last week!

During the week I shot 6 rolls of Arista.edu 400 with my beater Rolliecord. I really like family vacation pictures in little black and white square photographs.

the silver for "serious" photos, but my small family seems to really like the 2 1/4" square paper prints better than looking at photos on the computer.

Besides, what photos are more "serious" than those of family?

I have an unopened bag of D-76 to make one gallon and an unopened bag of ZoneIV print developer. Free to whomever will use them. Let me know and I'll bring them to the gathering. Shawn

Thanks Shawn. You have been most generous. I am sure someone will want these.

We have another "street" photography application that might be of interest. Howe Meadow is 3-4 miles south of Peninsula on River Road paralleling the Cuyahoga River. Every Saturday morning from 9-12 there is a farmer’s market. Dolly and I have gone to the last three. The farmers set up open walled display tents with a table piled high with product on the customer side, a truck or van on the other. At peak time there may be 300-500 people, beautiful people, beautiful veggies, fruits, pastries, jams, cooking on site, shopping/haggling, a strolling singer guitar player, kids running and playing, people of all ages and dress, a bundle of activity. Besides being photogenic, it all tastes pretty good as well.

I think I've got to come now. It sounds like it's right where I want to be. I've got to stock up on film now...

The good thing about shooting at a farmer's market is that if you don't see the shot you want you can always have something nice to eat until the shot comes along.

Ok, the D-76 is spoken for. That still leaves an unopened bag of ZoneVI print developer.... Shawn

That sounds like fun. My local camera club has "assigned subjects" and one of them is "on the street". sounds like a plan... at least it's an option.
