  1. Winding Time (poem)

    by , 09-23-2009 at 07:16 PM
    As I sit and stare and ponder
    On this life through which I wander,
    Oft I find myself adrift on
    Many a varying theme.

    On one day it may be warm hugs.
    On the next, maybe a thought tugs
    From the edge of my own thoughts, out
    From the depths of dreams.

    And the days are few.

    I may be well, I may be broken.
    I might be shut or widely open.
    'Tis possible I'm in the room,
    Or perhaps far away.
  2. New (to me) 5x12 film holders

    by , 09-19-2009 at 06:18 AM
    I just bought a trio of new-to-me AWB 5x12 film holders from another APUG user. They arrived yesterday in UPS, in perfect condition. They're a great match to the three I already have, and if they didn't have a production date stamped in them, I wouldn't know they were used. My original three are walnut, these three appear to be cherry. It's too bad Alan Brubaker has effectively quit the film holder business. I've been trying for almost 2 years to order more from Alan but every time I checked, the ...
  3. Scale and the Photographic Print

    by , 09-13-2009 at 01:06 AM
    We photographers use all manner of format sizes, and the scale at which we print our photographs is also highly variable. These days, the mural sizes seem to be ever more common, with some photographers apparently compelled to display their work on the largest scale possible. At the same time, some of us print at relatively small sizes and even avoid enlargement altogether, by contact printing.

    So what underlies the photographer's decision of how small or large to print a photograph? ...

  4. Anticipation of a morning of ME time.

    by , 09-05-2009 at 02:53 PM
    Well, school starts for the kids next Tuesday. And that means one thing.

    In about two weeks I'm gonna be sick as a dog.

    Happens every year. Over a thousand children assemble after a summer-long seperation and get ready for share time. Hitting each other playfully, saying things forcefully (spitting), rubbing noses before opening doors, you name it. And my two wonderful and lovely children, the young one for whom I have selflessly sacrificed myself so that they could ...
  5. Gum Printing Workshop @ Project Basho

    by , 09-01-2009 at 12:49 PM
    This weekend I went to Project Basho in Philadelphia for a gum bichromate printing workshop with Scott McMahon. What a terrific experience. There was only one other student in my workshop, so we had lots of darkroom time and space, and were able to get a lot done. I came out of it with two finished prints and one partially finished print, which if you know anything about gum printing, is pretty productive for just two days.

    Scott is a great instructor, very knowledgeable, very hands-on. ...
