    Here's hoping that you all are having a good time. My wife told me last night at 9:00 PM that "I ought to go anyway," (even though my car has become unreliable. I wonder what I did to irritate her? Well, what else did I do?) I explained that it is a five hour drive and that I'd get there at 2:00 AM, assuming that I got there at all, and would be up four or five hours later to catch early light and didn't that seem like a lot for what one would hope to be a relaxing weekend? She stared at me, then repeated that she thought I ought to go anyway.

    I've got to figure out why she wants me dead all of a sudden. I wonder whether she took out more insurance on me?

    Anyway, I went to a local industrial park which just started when the economy crashed. They'd put in the streets, street lights and fire hydrants then the whole thing died. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and I had a great time and think I may have gotten at least a couple of good photos. I hope that all of you had at least as good of a day!

    ps: the car ran fine all day.

    I had a great time being able to shoot! I also realized I need to order more developer before I can see anything I shot yesterday. But I promise to get the good ones online as soon as I can. I loved the farm museum and would love to go back there (probably several times).

    Come on over. I have Monday and Wednesday mornings, but would be happy to have your company any other time we can predict sun.

    Yes I do. That is why I wrote what I did.

    What a turn around. As of Wednesday evening we knew of two people coming for sure. Thirteen ended up coming. Thank you. We had a bunch of fun.

    Saturday, Peter, Jeff S, Dale, Chris and I shot down in the Flats. At the end of the day Peter said I looked really tired. I counted film holders and realized I had shot 16 sheets of 7x17. That be a lot for a 72 year old. Jeff S, Dorothy, Beth, Lee G and Sue G spent the day at the Farm also having a great time.

    At a discussion of what we might do to make the event more attractive to new people it was suggested that we post scans of the images we made. I would be most appreciative if you who scan, would upload them here or link to some outside page. I don’t do that so I am going to have to ask that others show there stuff, please.

    It was suggested that we have a winter event and shoot at night out in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park over the snow and ice. The trail where we hike regularly, six miles from here, is called Horse Shoe Pond, has a several acre pond 100 feet from the parking lot. It might be a good spot. Then of course there is our 1/3 acre pond right outside the door. Sounds cold to me, but when we have a blanket of snow I will post and see who actually shows up.

    Any more good ideas for events?

    Thanks for coming all 13 of you who made it, and thanks for trying the several who had to cancel at the last minute.

    John & Dolly

    Thanks Jeff B for checking out the wiring on my plate burner. It seems to need a part. I will write Amergraph and see if they still have one. The light works well. It just needs a part to hold one of the two hoses at the vacuum motor. I can use the light and my print frame if I can’t locate the part.

    Jeff suggested that once I get into VanDyke production I could do a demo of that to and to our series of Alt Processes demos.
