    A gift for the wife...

    As some of you know my wife shoots the smaller format 4x5 and we have recently added a new member to the family, a 4x5 Wista.

    It looked a bit naked so I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone and build a leather case for it. Included are a couple of pictures of said case. It should make a nice gift for her for the holidays.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Thanks.

    The quotation is from Jack London:

    “I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

    Its one of Tif's favorites.

    A great gift that you made with your own hands Robert that I'm sure your wife will cherish.

    Thanks folks you're all very kind. Tif loves bags so it should be a big hit on our trip over Christmas.
