  1. Old negatives

    by , 07-13-2015 at 05:58 PM
    A friend at work 'inherited' a number of rolls of 116, 122, and 120 negatives with a few 127s thrown in from his grandfather.
    He tried to scan them on his all-in-one machine at home but after a few hours gave up and asked if I could put them on a CD for him.
    I love going through old negatives and had a great time 'discovering' the pictures with cars from the 20's and 30's....women in flapper outfits....beach scenes from the 20's, etc. During the course of the over 200 negatives I was ...

  2. Digital is looking pretty good today.....Part 2

    by , 02-12-2015 at 02:05 PM
    I had an idea for a Valentine's picture that I wanted to try and then give to my daughter and her fiance.
    I have a 5X7 B&W picture of them I shot and printed in a frame that I put in the background to be shot slightly out of focus.
    Focused in the foreground I artfully placed (to the best of my artful ability) a blue and white china cup and saucer filled with all colors of conversation hearts with a few 'good phrases' ones scattered around it that I could focus on as well as a single ...
  3. Fat Man and Little Boy Ride Again

    It is done. Rewind two weeks. I really need to get upstairs and clean out that closet. Rewind three years and two months. I need to make a break from photography for a while. Just sell everything. I am getting depressed because it is in the house and not being used.

    It is done. Wednesday night I got home from work and decided it was finally time. I started about 5:30. I rearranged my bedroom so that I would have an empty wall. I then, piece by piece, bit by bit, began to cart ...

  4. Fun.....like crack

    by , 01-01-2015 at 04:31 PM
    It suddenly dawned on me.
    NOW I get it.

    You opened your arms and knowledge to me asking for nothing in return. You gave me advice when I asked for it, praise when I probably didn't deserve it, and a place to store some of my most precious possessions. Always, asking nothing in return. One kind and generous APUGer even donated over a dozen rolls of Kodachrome K-64 to me.
    I felt welcomed.
    I felt loved.
    Oh, I subscribed and donated occasionally, but that wasn't ...
  5. Digital is looking pretty good today............

    The wife is out visiting family for the weekend (nephew is getting married), so it's my time to shoot. I can leave the bathroom/darkroom a mess all weekend while I work and take off for a few hours shooting each day without feeling a bit guilty at leaving her to clean house while I play. (Hey...it's her choice...she could always come with me.)
    Saturday I took off to visit the hills and creek close by and spent a couple of hours hiking the area looking for shots. Had a good time, BUT..... ...
