Wow. Alot has happened in the last few months. And life has just been a'zippin' by at a murderous rate. Where to begin . . .
Well, we'll pick up where we left off. The Rickett's Glen trip. Yeah, been that long. Well, had a wonderful time with Lee and Susan and everyone. Friday morning, I was not going to go. I was having a bad Remembering-Faith time. And I did not want to go anywhere. Let alone with a camera. So, my brother calls me and his weekend has freed up and he invites
So this customer of mine (drummer, laid back kinda dude) comes in Friday. Haven't seen him in a while so we strike up a conversation. How ya's and nice holidays and all that.
He asks how me photography is going? Well, I tell him how it's been slow this year. Not shooting much 35mm anymore, all large format. Take him in the other room and show him the Beseler enlarger I've got kept at the store. He asks if I would be interested in an enlarger? I say, HECK YEAH! So what is it?
My Daddy turned 68 today. He was born on a military base in southern Texas along the Gulf, don't recall where exactly. Grandpa was in the Army.
Dad played football in high school with Mike Gottfried at Crestline High in Ohio. He joined the Navy and served on the USS Orion (AS18) from 61 to 65 after graduating from the GL Naval Training Center. He became a machinist and met my Mom at a kegger at Kent State in 68, the year after she graduated from high school. They got married
Well, so far I have posted four of my photographic rules. I started with No. 6 in the spirit of George Lucas (I know, not number IV but not at the beginning, anyway).
Here's a recap.
Photographic Rule No. 6
I don't do weddings.
Photographic Rule No. 7
If the film hasn't been rewound, it might get fogged if you open the camera back.
Photographic Rule No. 8
Always remember to extinguish your subject.
First blog here in a while. I work in the morning but right now I am just winding things down and wanted to get some ideas down on epaper.
Well, it has been since May 14th since I have done anything photographic other than surf here and go to get a free Beseler 57MT from a fellow PUGer in Phoenixville, PA a month ago. I am not depressed or anything. I just have no desire to print, process or shoot. I did add some new information onto my website at the end of last month.
