    Yes, much nicer without the "framing device" of the lens shade in the corners. I guess I could always say it was an hommage to Atget.

    Hey Guys - One of my clients was recently at the fort. Very interesting spot. Old bunhers, gun emplacements, etc. I'll contact the park service tomorrow and find out if it's possible to get in. It looks like 1/2 the group wants to shoot, the other half wants to shoot and print. I am willing to print at night, so if people want to hang out, that can work. Like mentioned before, NJ Transit runs right to Asbury Park. It's about an hour and 45 minutes from Penn station. Driving from the city is ok if it's early. After 9:00, there will be much traffic. For those interested in printing, please let me know if you want to try Azo/Platinum. Thanks - Jim

    Is too late for one more to join? I don't have a LF camera, but I'd like to see you guys in action. I'll bring my Hassey, if that OK.

    Art--If I go, I can bring an extra LF camera if you want to experiment. You can bring a tripod.

    I am so excited, it's going to be the first time I see LF in action. It will be a valuable lesson to me, since I am thinking about moving toward LF all the time.

    I will be leaving from Bklyn, I can drop by to pick you up if any of you need a lift, let me know.

    So it's looking like I can do it, but I'll have to be back in Manhattan by 5-6 p.m. or earlier. We've got some family passing through, so I need to be able to meet them for dinner.

    If there will be a couple of people interested in experimenting with LF, then, I'll definitely bring a spare 4x5" camera.

    If you are able to print the big negs HP, I don't think you will ever go back to smaller format!

    Oh yes... This is the lighthouse! (shot on 5X7 Ektachrome)
    I've shot there several times. I was last there during the last week of April. there were ugly orange traffic cones all around the lighthouse. looked like it was roadwork. maybe it will be completed by June 18.

    I just checked with my wife, for scheduling conflicts, I'm good to go for June 18. Is it to be Fort Hancock or Asbury Park? I think Fort Hancock would be a lot more tripod friendly.

    David, or any one else need/want a ride? I'm coming from Bergen County and can swing into the city on my way down.

    Thanks, Tom, if it's not too much trouble, that would be great. PM me, if you need my address again.
