  1. Fat Man and Little Boy Ride Again

    by , 01-15-2015 at 08:28 PM
    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 ...

  3. Been two years. But I'm back.

    by , 11-26-2013 at 08:36 PM
    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 ...
  4. Another year in the life draws to a close . . . (short but sweet)

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 ...
  5. Apparently my generosity knows no bounds . . .

    by , 01-15-2011 at 10:06 PM
    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? ...
