    I broke out the 8x10 to take a photo of one of my boys and his homecoming princess standing next to the '54 Buick they rode in during the homecoming parade. Unfortunately the Porsche one of my other boys (and princess) was riding in took off right after the parade so I did not get that photo. I did get a quick shot of them in front of the Buick with my Rolleiflex. I have some photos taken with the digital, but won't share them here, of course.

    Tomorrow will be busy -- I'll be helping a bunch of 4-H kids to shoot a roll of film each (35mm) in the morning -- we'll make contact sheets and a print each in a couple weeks. Then on Sunday I'll be using the 8x10 and 11x14 all day in the redwoods. That should keep me busy until the LFF is up Sunday evening!

    PS -- my only computer programming class I took at college used IBM punch card machines!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Hehe nice! (On all counts)

    Side note, I JUST learned about 4-H while visiting the New England fair "The Big E" a few weekends ago. Being in the Fairfield County area there's not much of that kind of stuff, but apparently it's big "upstate" CT and the surrounding areas. Seems quaint to me, like the farmers version of the Boy Scouts good stuff!

    Where I just moved to (Page County Iowa) claims to be where 4H started! And it was first 3H. No clue what the Hs stand for, but I think I used to know. Most of my friends in grade school were in 4H - we had to schedule Girl Scouts around it. Central NYS - dairy country.

    The four“H’s” stand for HEAD, HEART, HANDS, and HEALTH.

    If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    To be honest: someone dropped the case with the microfiches. Since it took 3.583 fiches to backup the forum, it will take some time to sort all the fiches in the right order and have it all scanned ....

    In the mean time - read some analogue software. I think it was also referred to as "a book"

    Here are some tips:

    I'll bet that if I look in the right place I could still find one of my card decks!

    I think I finally tossed mine out. Too bad, my boys would have gotten a kick out of them (for about 8 seconds).

    It still down

    My host usually backup my websites everyday for this kind of situation so if ever the main server has problem ie: diskdrive failure etc.) they can put the backup on a new one and the site will be running again.. i hope they could fix it soon.
