  1. There´s always a first time

    by , 09-24-2008 at 08:59 PM
    Today it´s the first day having my dear enlarger in place for almost 1½ year, no more getting frustrated over others equipment. Setting is hopefully very temporary but I suspect so is not the case. Going from a large lab - to make exposure in the attic and then running down deadly narror stairs to a small bathroom to develope. Why not start writing a blog for first time ever, just today? A lot of new stuff starts this week, awakening, coming back to life, goodbye desperation, depression and lethargy, ...
  2. Giving this blog thing a try

    by , 09-23-2008 at 07:23 AM
    I suppose there are a lot of things I could say in this blog, but considering I've never done it, I'll just tell what happened on a shoot last Friday evening.

    A friend of mine (a fellow LF shooter) and I went to the balloon glow at Forest Park in St. Louis. The glow occurs the night before the Great Forest Park Balloon Race.

    He and I were both shooting 4x5. I am proud to say that I was able to backpack my camera gear with relative ease. I am not a backpacking sort ...
  3. Ike aftermath

    by , 09-17-2008 at 05:09 PM
    THe hurricane dealt us a direct hit. Massive destruction. The images from the coast just break my heart. Here, with power supplied by the generator, we are only inconvenienced. Cleanup will take a long time, but we've had no damage to the house or cars and, more importantly, to ourselves.

    I've taken lots of digipicts, but will venture out with a real camera soon: the lovebugs that gather along the sap rings of the just-sawn tree trunks, the tomato hornworms that ravaged my tomato ...
  4. Testing - testing - Houston we have some problems

    by , 09-02-2008 at 03:26 AM
    What a beast - That was the first comment from my friend who helped me setup my 20x24" camera. And it is. It looks like a beast, it handles like a beast, but I love it like only a parent can love their own kids. We wanted to test the camera, but it has no bellows yet and I dont have a lens that will cover the 20x24" format. Well we made a "bellow" with 4 rods, a black plastic sheath and some meters of fabrick made for keeping light out. After checking that it was light tight ...
  5. SLR 1970's

    by , 08-30-2008 at 02:03 PM
    I am into collecting 70's SLR Cameras. I started off with the Spotmatic 2, but found changing the M42's a bit of a drag, when I doing my Landscapes. Although the Camera did have those superlative Multi Coated Takamur Lens, especially their standard 55mm lens, I decided to go for compact, and the OM1 was perfect, for my Landscapes and seemed to be packed with everything ie D.O. F, MLU etc, although in due course I hankered to be a Nikon owner, having become fascinated with their brand history. ...
