Just a checklist. Not a wishlist. Unless... But I just wanted to post my list here.
So. I will be having a 4x5 on the way. I also need to round up the following...
Have or will have
All darkroom gear for tray processing and enlarging including Beseler 57MT
Need to get
Longer lens (200-300 range)
Shutter release cable

Well, I kind of departed suddenly. Without a trace. POOF!, one might say.
I'm sorry I disappeared. I know I don't need to apologize. But I was having a hard time after Faith died. As I mentioned in the last entry I sold all of my camera gear. Just felt the need to remove the 'obligation' I felt to use something I had when I wanted nothing to do with it. And I moved in a different direction, that being getting my family through a tough time.
Well, about mid-August
Here is a recent essay of mine in the Chronicle of Higher Ed, which I suppose might resonate with some here. The link is here.

Two hot devices
Two batteries dying
No outlet, no bars
No signal, no data-
Nothing to retweet
Just fields and barns
And ruminating cows.
No towers, just hills
And trees, and fields,
And hills, and trees-
A poor farmer plows-

Those who take interest in solar flares have been entertained quite a lot over the past few years. Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) from our Sun hurl massive amounts of charged garbage out into space. The first CME was "seen" by a satellite put up by the lab where I work, with a very primitive pixelated camera that sent a digitized signal to Earth and produced an image on Polaroid film. Perhaps some of the first "hybrid" photography!
