Heck no! I try to print in the cold months and let the film flow in the summer! Having a ball round here! Messing around here there to keep it fresh too (ie the Ming-Rider-Rodinal-Salt-Stand-paradox-experiment). Keep up the great art John, always a pleasure.
Yes. A lot. Taking a 3-month (winter) break from it, resuming travel and photography in the Spring.
Then the circus starts again from late spring all the way to autumn in 2014 (vetting, printing, framing...).
Yea a bit, the work grind and the heat haven't helped either. Id like to travel a bit, but its pretty hard to find the time and the money for it. The work route, and nearby wanderings have left me in a rut, I'm hoping camping later this summer and a road trip somewhere might give me a good kick to get me going again.
It ebbs and flows each day but I wouldn't say I have slowed down. It is a rare day where I haven't shot some film somewhere. But I have noticed this year that I am shooting far more 35mm, and far less medium format.
I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world; the photographic possibilities here are virtually boundless. While my shooting ventures do tend to drop off during the rainy season, I do shoot year-round.
An assortment of F-series Nikons with a lot of Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and a D800 (just to help keep Duracell solvent/and in situations where E100G doesn't work).
Favourite films: KE ("Kodachrome Era"): PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus, Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.
