sounds like my kinda pic. I'd love to see this.

Thanks Dorothy.

What I mentioned is on the towpath SE of an industrial section of Akron, just S of Summit Lake. I would be happy to take you there. I thought the light was better in the morning than in the afternoon.

I had seen the picture in this link but not understood where it was taken.

The person who asked about abandoned places also shoots a Hassey. Maybe he will like this as well.

Hay all,
Im interested in the empty house/cabin that in shown in the gallery for the Cuyahoga Valley Photographic Society.

Before you click on the link, look to the left after entering the gallery and find Workshops: Tony Sweet Participants 09 (not just Tony Sweet)

http://www.cvps.org/gallery.htm

Lots of visual ideas here. Looks like they photographed this cabin I'm interested in and then were at the covered bridge if the pictures are published in time of event. Are they in the same area? Was there special permission to get into the cabin?

I like the idea of the rotting cars mentioned above in this thread. The village sounds interesting ("something" farm) but rarely amd I excited to see a bunch of running wild kids bored with the old stuff, the usual family station wagon vacation... showing my age again... "SUV croud with hand sanitizers."

I also hope to enjoy all other spots others are interested in. Expecially early in the morning.

Like to throw in a humble appeal to others to allow me to pose or catch others in candids or more formal poses too. I really love photographing people in nature. We seem to belong here too besides the trees, mountains and waters.

Really enjoyed Sunday's Breakfast!!!! Hope we can go back!

If you go west on Everett Road from the covered bridge about a ¼ mile there is an intersection with a road that goes north and connects with Wheatley Road. If you go further west on Everett Road about 100 yards or so there is a small cabin about this size on the north side of Everett back in the woods across a stream that judging by the gulley and debris, sees violent water movement. I have not seen a driveway or even a path to this cabin. I have never pursued it because I am allergic to mold and a small shaded log cabin locked up at the base of a large water system seems like a place for me to avoid. Whether that is your mystery cabin I don’t know. Where you would go to determine ownership and access, I don’t know.

I have had three 7x17 pictures juried into an annual show at the Cuyahoga Valley Photographic Society, but I don't have any contacts to pursue this. As you can see from the member pictures it is a mostly digital club.

John,
This sounds like our palatial palace. I'll see if I can treck up in there in July and take a look. It might be a mid day hike opportunity if it is overgrown with a lot of woods.

Thanks for racking the brain on this one. I'm on the hunt for places where we can visit.

Lee,

Those really are some great scenic pictures you have found, a good tour of the park at it's finest. Thank you for linking us to them.

Dolly and I were invited to an extraordinary show this evening. Peter Spangenberg is a member of an alternative processes group here in Cleveland. They have a show going on in the Plain Dealer lobby. For security reasons each artist was only allowed a very few guests. Peter was kind enough to include us at the opening.

For some time Peter has been showing us these gorgeous platinum 8x10 contact prints and modestly saying that these were the seconds, that he had had to put the best of his work in the show. I thought he was just being polite because I thought the prints he had been showing us were GREAT.

Well Peter can come out of the closet now. The prints in the show really were better. I thought the seconds were good, but these really glowed. Peter, I hope after this show closes you will bring the good stuff down to our next gathering. These are some platinum prints you want to see.

Oh, yeah, there were some other stuff there as well, you know 22x30 wet plate, Gum Dichromate, ambrotype plates, wet plate on black glass. Palladium prints. etc.

Were these by local artists?

It is a local alt processes group run by Herb Asherman. I believe all the members are in NE Ohio, but I am not a member and have not seen the roster. I have seen half the names that were in the show also in the FAVA show at Oberlin each year, but of course that is a five state event.

With the way film and silver prints are going maybe they will include silver prints as alt proc next year and we can join. Never know.

Yes. In fact from my stand point any analog photography is essentially alt process.

This is an analogy that you may, or may not agree with. I'll bet that in 1965 you didn't have much to speak about, automobile-wise, with the owner of a brand new Chevelle.

But today, if you had the choice of talking with someone who bought and kept a mint 1965 Chevelle or a guy with neon lights under his nitrous injected 2009 Toyota with 30,000 watt stereo, you'd opt for the Chevelle guy. :)

Don’t bet too much. My first car was a 1951, almost black dark green, Buick Roadmaster, four door sedan, stick shift, that my parents had used for their traditional four years and then saved for my 17th birthday, March 30, 1957. The theory being, that the damage I might do didn’t matter because the car was already used up from their point of view. Talk about amortized.

The only saving grace was that they didn’t drive it at all the last nine months. When they went to start it in March, it wouldn’t. A mechanic came, spent a few hours and said that it wouldn’t ever. They were so embarrassed and honor bound by that quaint family tradition that a person’s word is his bond, that we went off to the Chevy dealer and bought a 1957 Chevy, red, convertible, stick, four barrel, dual exhaust, Police option heavy duty suspension. As far as I was concerned, God is a Gear Head.

Hi All,
We hit the magic moth of July today. looking forward to doing some more morning photography and seeing you all. I got the old hassy out and promised her we would go for an early morning stroll tomorrow. She wagged her neck strap and got all wound up and let her mirror down.

Well today's early morning walk ended up a little later than I thought. I was about 8:00AM before I got to go shoot. It was a nice time. Had the negs run and scanned them. Here is what I saw.

Important corn information. Dolly stopped at Zalay's tonight (near the covered bridge) to pick up some fresh vegetables. They expect to have their first corn later this week. What you may remember from last year that in addition to selling a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, they also have a stand in the back where you can buy freshly squeezed lemonade and freshly roasted corn. They have a bucket of melted butter and you can get all the cholesterol you can stand. I mean fresh corn, roasted before your eyes. Most people eat until their eyes pop out. Just something to think about when you are not at the Country Maid for an ice cream. Did someone hear Jeff groan? Still going to that wedding Jeff?

Lee,

Along the lines of your Sunoco shot, just north of Peninsula is the town of Boston Mills. They have a restored gas station (Pure Oil) that is now used as an art gallery.

That is cool. Now if I had a 1936 Hudson to roll up to it and some very cool old suits with a long chain on my pocket watch !!!

I'm drooling right now! Maybe we could get Country Maid to make a roasted corn ice cream? They do that down in Mexico and it is pretty good stuff.
