    Summer Programs

    Robert Triffen and I met last night to discuss some programs for the summer. One of our projects (and this is open to anyone interested) is to photograph some abandoned New Jersey diners (mentioned in another post) before they are gone forever. There are two within two miles of Raritan Valley Community College where I work two days a week. Both of these diners have great access and should photograph well. Robert has mentioned others along Route 22 in North Plainfield and toward Newark. Route 1 has a few to offer too, from Newark to Princeton to Lawrenceville. We should start compiling a list of them.

    We will be attending the Large Format Conference in Louisville, KY and the end of June/beginning of July and will be photographing on the trip out and back. Are any other NJ APUGers going? There is an environmental portraiture workshop before the conference if anyone is interested.

    On a personal note: I need extension rails for a Kodak Commercial View 8x10 and a 2D 5x7. Lookingf fdor newer style 5x7 film holders too.

    I got out today to explore and do a little photography in northern Hunterdon County. I took a few shots with my Hassy at the old Union Twp. Municipal Bldg. in Jutland (finished a roll of EPY120) and took two b&w 5x7's at Spruce Run where I caught some storm clouds moving in. I would guess a few LF shooters could spend a day in this area while those shooiting 35mm and Medium Format could expose a lot of film too. Great locations for mid-week shooting. More than enough to plan an entire day around.

    There is also an old diner in Morrisville just over the Trenton Makes bridge that is a bait shop, http://georgelosse.com/pan-land-01/bait-1-600.htm

    Thanks, George, for the list. It is exhaustive and will prove very helpful. Will you be able to join us to photograph a few of these diners?

    James,

    I might, it all depends on when you are headed out. There are three in the New Brunswick area that I was looking into, but I haven't scouted them to find out their best light yet.

    George, please let me know what you find out. I am certainly willing to come to New Brunswick, as well as Robert Triffen is, to photograph these diners.

    Thanks.

    Hi James & George, I live in Long Branch but would like to get involved. Please let me know if you want anyone else. Most of the diners around here have been turned into condos. Thanks

    There has been no interest in photographing diiners from the general membership. If four of us - George, Robert Triffin, John, and me - want to do this, we should make the arrangements and go. I am all for it.

    I recently joined the group. However,i have been doing exactly the same thing from about a year ago. I would be thrilled to do this together as well if you are not done with it.

    I haven't photographed a diner in 10 months, but my interest is till there. Because it has been slow in the studio, I have more time this summer to get out. I will be somewhere photographing on Saturday, 9 August, if anyone wants to join me. I also photograph during the week, so let me know what your availability is.

    Robert, we have to get together for sure. If not for photography, then for pizza. I will call you.
    Geroge and John, what is your availability?
