    Edward Weston's Birthday was March 24

    Handcuffs and a darkroom. What's the connection? Well it was both Houdini's and Edward Weston's birthday on March 24. Grab your handcuffs and head down to the darkroom and see what develops.

    I'll eat a bell pepper and think of EW.

    But I'll eat a banana and dream of Charis...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    But what a muse she was. RIP Charis.

    Stop buy Kim Weston on FB and wish his grand dad a happy birthday.

    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.

    I recently read Edwards and Charis' account of photographing through out California on the Guggenheim grant. I dream of being part of such a creative pairing!

    Someone to drive while I look for images, someone who could put up with and complement my three boys, someone who is willing to live the life of simple economy, and be as full of life.

    According to Charis, Edward would often sleep while she drove, she would wake Edward up when she spotted something she thought he would be interested in. Not to hard to do I guess. Even my photo buddies know what I like to shoot and will point something out to me if I miss it.

    I hate to split hairs but It's the 125th anniversary of his birth, you can't have birthdays when you died fifty three years ago.

    Yes, one can celebrate a dead's person's birthday. EW's day of birth (birthday) was 125 years ago.
