    Well, it looks like the dark side of those proponents of digital is finally rearing its ugly head - treating film users as undesirable! I can't wait for the signs to start popping up - they'll have the silhouette of a 35mm canister inside a red circle with a slash through it.

    That's why I avoid California and photograph New Mexico.

    Speaking of 'mind boggling,' I'm waiting to hear/read what Ed's approach would be when photographing the aforementioned nun! :o

    I, for me, would have a bracing whisky first but I think Ed doesn't like that stuff.

    Ed would need to find out what TYPE she is and then apply the appropriate amount of hocus pokus and psycho swings and tilt.

    I replied to this a couple of days ago, and ??? I don't see anything here - possibly the reply slipped off into bit heaven...?

    Which "Ed" are you addressing here?

    If the question was directed towards me ... My answer would be: "With a camera - the same way I photographed a Nun the last time..".

    She was a had a *very good* "eye" for photography and had returned from an assignment to Africa, where she had photographed the local people and became fascinated with the flat art - paintings, done by the local people, in their style, of religious themes. She had used an APS camera - and returned with 11 rolls of film. The problem was that she was not experienced in photographing flat art, and there were terrible amounts of perspective errors - keystoning galore.
    I had the film processed in a local Commercial lab, and finally produced ~ 70 or 80 color prints, correcting for the perspective errors by easel tilting - the old "brick trick". *Interesting* - if backbreaking - work!!

    I photographed her for an article in their publication about her work.

    So -- "How did I photograph her? - and how would I photograph another Nun?"

    I'll ignore any subrosa implications here - I would photograph her in exactly the same way as I photograph everyone else - Talk to her, try to get some idea of her inner "being" - Try to discover her internal image of herself , and how she would like to be presented in the photograph ... that would be, more or less, the end of rationalization. Then - try to "leave my Self" and start tripping the shutter, "stream of consciousness-ly" as I always do.
    Carpe erratum!!

    Sigh and I was out of town. Karen come on out. Two viking ladies are better than one. I'm sure that nobody would dare stand up to us. Brian might have a bit of fun taking pic's of the aftermath. But I have a tale to tell about my trip. could have used Brian on it.
