    Next month! I think we have had the last of the snow. I have my vacation request in, I'm pretty sure I'll get the weekend off.

    Great Dale. Glad to hear it. We would like to kern more about your recently built darkroom. What is the current status. Is there any chance the group could have a tour?

    Actually what is going on is that I am remodeling my office area adjacent to the darkroom. The unfortunate thing is that the darkroom has been turned into a temporary storage facility while the ceiling, floors and walls are being finished in the other room. It is sad to have this state of affairs, but the construction will end soon.

    Finally

    John:

    It looks like we're finally going to make one of your gatherings and are glad of it.

    I have long wanted to photograph in the flats and look forward to the opportunity of doing so, if that's possible.

    I'm not sure what the "pizza toll" is, we have good pizzas here, but I'm afraid it would be cold by the time we got to NE Ohio.

    I'm off to order more film for this event.

    Pete

    Pete,

    We are glad to see you are at last coming back to Ohio.

    The Flats await you. On weekends it is about 35-45 minutes north of here, off Rt. 77. The Flats are a lot more photo friendly on the weekends, especially Sunday. More than a few weekday construction sites have been ruined for photographs as their security people have escorted me back to the street.

    If you are interested in the ships that pass through the Flats there is an Internet tool has made that much easier. Each ship has a transponder that reports every minute where the ship is and its planned course for the next 30 minutes. It also tells what ships are expected in port and when. https://www.marinetraffic.com/ee/

    Set your view up for “Cle” the symbol for Cleveland and it will help you add a 600 foot freighter and/or tugs to your pictures.

    You can enlarge the map to see what see what bridges and roads will be in the picture or how to get to the picture.

    Attached are three Flats ship images from last year. I am working on a new Flats series I hope to show at the gathering.

    That said I hope any previous gathering visitors will add their pictures, either of the Flats or some other places they have gone in NE OH.

    Thanks,

    John

    We are really fortunate in having a wealth of photography subject matter in the neighborhood. 1.4 miles from our house we have the museum of 19th century farm equipment, 48 acres of a family’s private museum, which we are encouraged to photograph and enjoy. I made a series of 20 images, which I will post hoping to interest visitors. If you have been there and photographed, I hope you will add your pictures to this thread.

    From the thread introduction, “Richfield, Ohio’s Jim Fry has created The Museum of Western Reserve Farms and Equipment, dedicated to preserving the tools, equipment, skills and way of life lived by Ohioans in the 1800s. Mr. Fry, a farmer, historian, and artist, has collected 44 buildings including what may be the largest surviving early blacksmith shop in Ohio, the oldest barn in the state, the Stouffer farm smokehouse, and one of the largest surviving post and beam barns in Summit County. The farm is constantly evolving as animals, tools, buildings, machines, in various states of preservation are added or combined into exhibits. This is 1.4 miles from our house. http://www.ohiofarmmuseum.com

    John;

    It seems, according to "she who must be obeyed", that we have to be home Sunday as we have company arriving on Tuesday and the house needs cleaning, or so I'm told. So we will not be able to stay over Sunday evening. But we will be there Friday and Saturday.

    I hope you will meet Shawn and Lynn while you are here. They have come to several of these events over the years. It is not a normal event unless they or his employer change their plans at least four times. We are happy they and you come and we just ride out the storm.

    Storm? Storm? We can't have "storms". I'm shooting a 4x5, not some digital out a car window. No storms allowed. Although, my dark cloth is waterproof.

    That is alright Pete. If a storm comes we will wrap the dark cloth around your head and you can hide under my desk with the middle dog, Cindy, who is also afraid of storms. Besides, we don't invite no stinking digy shooters here, windows or no windows.
