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

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.

The East Coast of the US has just come out from under two feet of snow. Here in Milton, Delaware we have received 22" of the blessed white stuff. Maybe more. Haven't heard anything official yet. Just counted what I shovelled as I tried to stay ahead of things.
