    Absolutely fantastic! Congratulations to you, of course, but also to Mark and Ron. They are going to seriously (and hopefully, not always seriously) benefit from your injection of energy and curiosity. Give 'em hell . Looking forward to your 'letters home.'

    Since you are moving to Rochester, there are several things that I learned when I worked there:
    • Rochester looks great in snow.
    • Spring is wonderful, do not miss the Lilac Festival http://www.lilacfestival.com/. Walk around High Land Park during the Festival.
    • Fall is great, however if you want to shoot fall colors and waterfall, you need to know that the Finger Lakes and the rivers in Western New York are formed by the retreating glaciers. The rivers run North. The sun does not shine or only shines on the waterfalls for short times during the day [and never at night, but I digress.]. To get photographs of Sun illuminated waterfalls use this software: http://photoephemeris.com/ and read there tutorials: http://stephentrainor.com/tools/ Highly recommended by humble me. [Insert disclaimer about not connected to the enterprise by friendship or economically.]
    • Kodak was founded in Rochester because it is the World's largest natural darkroom.
    • The standard 18% Gray card is the same color as the sky in Rochester.
    • During the winter, stop signs and traffic lights are merely advisory. Drive appropriately.
    • The local newspaper is called the Democrat and Chronicle, www.democratandchronicle.com/which is called the "D&C". As a male you should know that Rochester NY is the only place in the World where a male can get a DNC! Warning: Keep your legs together and never turn you back! You have been warned!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Come for a Visit

    Hi Chris, if you get a chance (and since Rochester is closer than Kansas to New Hampshire) try to get some time to visit me. I'll put you to work making a Dye Transfer print.

    My theory is that Silver Halide will be important again if civilization cannot continue to support the silicon industry - a few priests have to keep the faith alive!

    Regards - Jim Browning

    Chris:

    It is always wonderful when people follow their dream.

    I'm rooting for you, for PE and for Mark.
