    I retired in 2003 and have taken fourteen photo related courses at U Akron since then. I am probably as old as your grand parents, but hopefully we can talk by that gap. I will PM you and we can talk about course possibilities off line. As you get into the advanced classes and move to larger formats there is potential for a lot of excitement. The school has 6x7 cm and 6x9 cm Fuji range finder cameras and 4x5 inch view cameras to loan to students. If you are in the Akron area this summer I would be happy to have you visit my darkroom before the Sept. gathering and talk about where you want to go with your photography.

    Jeff,

    You are most welcome. There is plenty of room for campers. I have not found anything local to equal the Big Chicken though.

    How ever, please tell Eva that she made the party at Photostock 2008 and that you are not allowed to come unless she joins us as well.

    It looks like we may have several campers. You are more than welcome to do so. At Photostock 2008 I noticed a few campers shivering through bucket showers. We have a pond about 1/3 to 1/2 acre in size located between the house and where people will be camping. The bottom is pretty muddy, but it drops off fast. If people would like we can anchor the 9 foot inflatable dingy I brought to Photostock 2008 and use it as a swimming raft. You can dive in to avoid the mud. When you get out you could wash the mud off your feet with a hose.

    Hazards in the pond:
    There is a snapping turtle whose shell is about a foot across. He may have been relocated by September.
    There are often two flying yellow Labrador Retrievers just behind the tennis ball that landed beside you.

    Additional perks: The pond has Bass, Blue Gill and three foot Grass Carp. The pond has not been fished in at least twenty years. If you will catch and release, anyone attending is welcome to bring a rod and reel. The last person that fished here twenty years ago caught four fish in four casts.

    My guess is that the street photographers amongst us could have a lot of fun with any of the above.

    Joe Smigiel, if you come and hire a model, she won’t get poison ivy in the dingy.

    Northern Ohio Gathering, Cuyahoga Valley National Park

    Anyone wondering why have a second or third gathering in the Midwest in one summer need only look at these pictures of Photostock 2008 from Mark an Marc. Look at the faces. These people are having fun and/or are considering really interesting photographic ideas. For me that is what it is all about. Come to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in September for more of the same.

    I can hardly wait! I got a Delorme Ohio Gazateer with the parks mapped out so I know where I'm going ... and a Cuyahoga map and splurged and got a GPS (handheld). (I get lost easy). I'm really looking forward to this! I haven't been camping in years!
