    re-tired

    Being retired is a full time job. I don't know how I had the time to get everythng done and work at a job, too. I suggest you take things slow and easy. There will be plenty to do. I've been putting off fixing my 2 1/4 by 3 1/4 and 4x5 FrankenGraphics, putting them together with spare parts I picked up here and then. But I started on the smaller one today. I need to develop a roll of 120 I found in a Rollieflex that I just picked up at an outdoor antiques market for a song and I need to yada, yada, yada....

    Wooo!
    (although now you can still complain that you don't have enough time for photos because you're spending all your time on here).
    Wish I could say the same, but I've got another 40 years to go. Hope all that velvia in the freezer and Tetenal chems last until then...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    For the last year and a half I have been living separately from my Hasselblads. I have been separated from my darkroom for almost five years and used the one at Glen Echo.

    I cannot wait to use the Speed Graphic as my grandson runs around.

    Hey, good news and congratulations on your upcoming well earned retirement. I've been on mine for 8 years already. Man, does time fly by when your not tied to the wheel any longer. Good luck in your adventure going forward.
