low tide the sand bar goes right out to it
but high tide comes FAST, people have died trying to make it back ( or driven out and lost their car ! )
and just beyond ( to the left where you can't see ) is where the gaspee affair happened
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaspée_Affair ) it was one of the things that triggered the american revolution ...
it isn't allowed in the galleries at least because it originated on those pesky electronic files
and through the true magic of the hybrid route made it onto paper ...
you're the man ..
thanks for your personal recipe+method .. coffee in the blood and genes ..
my cezve is the same kind as yours, but one is small (brown ) the other is big ( blue ) white
interior enamel .. but they say "yugoslavia" on the bottom
thanks to the ottoman conquest of europe, the whole world is addicted ...to THE BEAN and making real coffee !
off to feed the monkey on my back, and read what the day has in store for me ..
I always make the coffee at home for my mother. I found 4 things were important.
First , you must put lots of coffee in to the cezve. I bought an military green white interior enamel small cezve from Etsy , made in Poland and put 4 lots of full teaspoon of Turkish Coffee.
Second , you must stir coffee , water , sugar mix until the bubbles go away.
Third , you must use high heat to make it right. Not electric , real fire.
Fourth, only the first go up is enough and best with high heat
why isn't this allowed?
also, that lighthouse image is my favorite I've seen of your work
i used the cheaper store bought stuff for about 5 years ..
it worked OK ... this stuff is even cheaper
and i don't have to worry about any arabica beans in my coffee !
thanks for your concern and nice comment
Ya think your images have more flavor than if you just used cheap store bought coffee? Of course you wouldn't have the pleasure of smoking beans for your olfactory delight.

well, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do
wow, the images are surprisingly... detailed
hi nedL and newcan1
its not toned, but selectively bleached with washing soda so the greens and yellows and blues kind of intermingle.
i know what you mean newcan1 ... but i'm working on test prints for a non-silver project ... as much as i would
have loved to use a camera and film ... for this project at least, its gotta be 1's and 0s
it helps my materials costs are next to nil
John I love the pic. But can I implore you, next time to leave the Dcam at home? A beautiful silver negative could have laid the foundation for this masterpiece, and you would not then have been locked out of your APUG home.
I forgive you. We all succumb to the bits and bytes from time to time.
