I had to look that one up. Is this it?

I haven't seen it. I suppose I should go over to his house and get a picture of it. It does medium format only (and 35mm) and comes with a condensor head and dichroic head, and a voltage control and some lenses. He paid $600 but will probably take $200 or will negotiate. (best offer)

Looks like my girlfriend Lynn and I will be coming sometime Saturday morning and staying through Sunday afternoon. The regulars know that means we'll be going somewhere super early to photograph Sunday morning. =)

I'll try and have as much new work mounted as I can before then. Can't wait to see everyone (and your work) again, it's been too long. I met up with John, Dale and Peter this winter but I don't remember when I saw the rest of you last... Hopefully there will be some new faces as well.

See you soon.

Shawn,

That is great news. We are looking forward to meeting Lynn. We will put you in charge of early Sunday morning activities. Look for us at breakfast.

Shawn,

OK. So I'm trying to wrap my head around the concept of Shawn as a Sunday 6 a.m. herder of photographic cats... and to be honest, it's just not working for me. I appreciate efforts to stretch and play against type, but I think this one should go back to central casting for reconsideration.

Maybe that Marion Morrison guy from Iowa.

Looking forward to seeing you and meeting Lynn, Shawn. (Work on your 'outside voice' in case Marion can't make it.)

I think we had a misunderstanding Lee. I saw it as Shawn and Lynn being the only ones up. Since he is showing her around, he is in charge.

Maybe I have been missing what was going on in the past when Dolly and I just stayed in bed and caught up with the group at coffee hour or more recently at breakfast in Richfield.

Not really. I've just been out shooting with Shawn early on a number of Sunday mornings (access gates still locked at the Ledges and such), sometimes with a few other folks, and I've never noticed any propensity for him to herd anything other than his film holders. :)

=) Ha! That's great guys! I think Lee L has it, he's usually out there with me. I always let people know where I'm going (and sometimes they come along!) but I'm definitely not a herder.... as if this group could be herded!

I will of course do the same this time around if anyone would like to join us. I've driven past Howe Meadow, I believe it's called, on the way to other places early in the morning numerous times. It's gorgeous at those hours and I was thinking of starting things off there on Sunday. The other area I was considering is the bottom of the U area at Ritchie Ledges, that closest to the Octagon parking lot. I've never been in that section of the ledges at dawn before and it seems to me like there might be some interesting side lighting. Lee L and I have wandered through after spending dawn in the section between Ice Box Cave and the Big Stone Stairs but it was well after daybreak by the time we made it over there.

Anyway, we'll figure it out Saturday. Again, can't wait to see everyone!

Lee L, I haven't read this whole thread so forgive me if you've already posted the answer to this.... You comin'!?

Things are chaotic and unpredictable here, and I expect them to remain that way for a good while, so it's a day at a time. I may not stay overnight, as there are things here at the ranch that might need my attention overnight, and that may mean a bit later start for me Sun morning.

Short answer: I do plan to be there for as much of the weekend as circumstances allow, and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone.

If there is a paying demand I will make and present them with all due pomp and circumstance. Dolly is looking for a second career for me.

If there is a cat herding merit badge, you've won it many times over, and with great patience and grace. So you get the first one at no charge.

Could I have a little feedback please? I am wondering if this would be of interest either Saturday or Sunday? The other day we could have Peter’s demo, print showing and shoot in the park.

About a mile from the Akron Art Museum (see exhibit info post #57), the Cuyahoga River and the OH & Erie Canal start to climb, fifteen ninety foot locks in a mile. It is Summit County after all. There are several RR overpasses making for some pretty dramatic locks, water falls, disintegrating construction sites. Peter and I have shot there and enjoyed. Would the group be interested in shooting there either morning, seeing the Flora exhibit in the air conditioned museum after 11 AM, and possibly having late lunch together. Some opinions please.

These pictures were among many taken there.

“The Ohio & Erie Canal was a technological marvel. The inland waterway incorporated a series of sandstone locks that enabled boats to climb differences in elevation along the Continental Divide. The steepest section of the canal was between Akron and the Little Cuyahoga River. In a single mile, 15 locks, or "steps," were necessary. Canal boats, which were pulled by mules on the towpath, made it possible to ship goods from the Great Lakes (Lake Erie) to the Gulf of Mexico (via the Ohio and Mississippi rivers). Locally, the canal, which opened between Cleveland and Akron in 1827”

John,

The facebook photo links don't work unless you have a facebook account and are signed in. So in my case (and probably others who don't trust or like facebook) using facebook for photo links "prevents you from connecting and sharing with some of the people in your life".

I'm neutral on the Akron locks. I probably won't decide on what I feel like shooting until the last minute.

Who was it that brought up cat herding? :whistling:

Looks like an interesting area to me.

Our selfish preference would be to have the demo and print showing Sat. night though since we will be leaving very early Sunday morning.

John, sounds like a well-planned morning and afternoon, I'm in! Definitely save the museum for the hot portions of the day, it's heavy enough carrying LF gear than adding an extra photographer to the load.

Sorry about the Facebook limitation.

Letís step back to basics. Can we count noses? Who is coming and when? Who is camping?

The camping question has to do with a possible safety issue. There is a large tree balancing on another tree, about to fall over the entrance to the camping area. It is so precarious that without a logger's knowledge I am a little afraid to work on the widow maker. If not many are camping we may do an alternate and set up camp by the pond allowing time and storms to take down the tree. If a good number are camping we need to get out the hard hat, chains, Mother in law's full size tractor and saws.

Letís have a count of who is coming and who is camping please.

Thanks.

John
