    BTW, what condition is that truck depot in? It was vacant for a while, has it been renovated or is it still sitting? Might be a good subject for my project ...

    The truck depot is in pretty bad shape, but it is surrounded by locked fence and we have a pretty active Police force patrolling.

    My canal series is all about entropy and some of it is within 2-4 miles of the house. Here is a link to some older pictures and my artist statement. Would you and Dan be interested in any of that? I can show you more recent images when you get here. Half of my Van Dykes are 7x17s from the series.

    Hmm ... no security on site, but police patrolling. Probably not worth it, but we'll take a look on the way by.

    I think my next theme is going to be something along the lines of entropy - I want to photograph nature recovering land that was previously inhabited. Is there anything in the locks that is less "groomed" - wild and overgrown? Glad to see some of your work making it online btw - great series and it deserves to be seen.

    Here's a couple of poor examples of the type of locations I'm looking for ...

    House

    Porch

    Bench

    Looking for all types of structures - we actually have many houses in the metro Detroit area like this.

    We are also interested in shooting other things if this idea doesn't pan out - whatever works for the group.

    Some of the locks look that bad or good depending on your view point. The catch is you have to walk to them, maybe a mile one way. I can loan you the baby buggy if you want to carry gear.

    Some of the structures down our driveway on Dolly's mother's land look like your Andrew Moore links only strangely in B&W to me. There is a semi trailer that decades ago was put in the woods for storage. It is now almost flat on the ground, rusted away and over grown. There is a tractor shed and a chicken coop in much the same way. Then there is always the old box trailer in the camping area that Dorothy has photographed.

    Those all sound like definite possibilities. We hiked 8-10 miles a day in Utah with my 30 pound backpack, so I think a mile or so wouldn't be too bad. I haven't seen the spots on Dolly's mother's land yet - they sound intriguing as well!

    I will plan on being there Sat or Sun. When do you thing people will be showing prints? I'd like to go out to eat with the group also.

    I didn't see anyone at the camera show but jameswilliamjones drove up. I picked up another Minolta 16mm camera (Texas Minox) and a new-in-box Peak 1 grain focuser. One less thing to carry back back and forth to the 8x10 enlarger.

    Dale,

    I am guessing we will show prints Friday night and Saturday after coffee and rolls into the afternoon. I think that because there is some interest in going to the Akron Art Museum Sunday afternoon. I remember you and Bill went last time. On the other hand Dolly and I enjoyed a second visit. When the prints will show is a guess at this point not a statement of fact. I am still trying to learn who all will be here.

    Sorry to miss you and Bill last Sunday. I was at the camera show just after it opened.

    The big question - what is "planned" for dinner Friday?

    Jeff: John had earlier described the flats in Cleveland that sounded interesting to me. But I am a little concerned about equipment security.
