    Speaking of food as we often do, I should mention that there is a good place to have breakfast, the Richfield Family Restaurant, across the street from the two motels at the Turnpike entrance, roughly five miles north of our house. It is not a gorgeous restaurant but it is cheap, wholesome, tasty and pretty quick.

    I am happy to report our first Midwest Large Format Asylum member, Colleen Kumrow from Jackson, WI has said she will join us. That is a long ride. I hope the regulars will make her feel welcome.

    There is a concurrent thread running on the Midwest Large Format Asylum. Jim Thompson of Kalamazoo, MI posted that he will join us. Several more are thinking about it. Jeff, tell them about the ice cream.

    Last gathering Peter Spangenberg performed an excellent platinum printing demonstration that was gratefully applauded by those attending. The pictures had the added interest of being from his trip to China. If someone would like to do a demonstration of something to do with our hobby it would be greatly appreciated. I want to apologize to Dale Marsh who offered to do a lith printing presentation this event. Because our house is serviced by a well and a somewhat fragile septic system, Dolly and I were afraid we might end up being thoroughly toned, inside and out. We would be most happy to drive up the street to your house and see it there.

    We are open to any volunteers or suggestions. If you have an idea that needs some support from our end please suggest the idea and we can attempt to work out the details. For those who have not been here before, we have an 11x13 foot B&W darkroom in the basement with electricity, ventilation and plumbing. At an earlier event Nicholas Lindan used the darkroom to show his company Darkroom Automation’s F-stop timer. This was so well received that over time at least half of the regulars, maybe more, have bought and happily put one to use.

    At another event we had a show and tell of LF cameras lined up between the house and the pond. Then several shooters spread out about the edges of the pond (100’x 200’) to take pictures. Dorothy Kloss’ efforts to be artistic were being frustrated by a stubborn resident bush which was quickly chainsawed into sawdust. Bill Schwab brought his trailer and entertained us with the ever portable wet plate process.

    Make a suggestion and let’s see if we can make it happen.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone again. This time I'll try to bring prints. Will try to get the weekend off work.

    Speaking of lith printing, I got a copy of The World of Lith Printing at Half-Price Books for $10+ tax last week. They had one other copy, so if anyone wants to reimburse me at my cost, I can buy it and bring it to the gathering.

    This is not the Master Photographer's Lith Printing Course, but is the follow up book described here: http://worldoflithprinting.com/index.php

    Great Avatar. Thanks Bill. With your permission I wanted to add the email you sent. As host it is exciting to see the buzz build as more people get involved and say they will attend. Thanks.

    “Great!!! I really enjoyed the last visit, John, and definitely look forward to this one. Since my last visit I have actually set up a darkroom with the enlarger that Jeff and Eva were kind enough to give me. I've got a small collection of prints that I'll bring along. In all likelihood I'll drive down during the day and back to my place in the evening. I don't have my work schedule for that weekend but I'm certain I'll be able to work around it.

    Look forward to see you.

    Bill “

    Lee,

    Thanks for the generous offer. I'm sure someone will want that.

    Your post reminds me that in the past several people have mentioned items they wanted to sell before the event. If someone is interested they can return post. The seller knows it is worth loading up the car with items that are likely to sell. Everyone please feel free to post anything you would like to offer to the group or anything you would like to find that one of us might have.

    John

    John,
    Sent you a PM with my info. Looks like I'm not going to be the only Lee there. I will admist to being a new again newbie with my 4x5. I used one 15-20 years ago in a studio (food photography), but the lure and ease of roll film and the 35mm has taken me further. I'll bring up the 4x5 and I'd certainly love pointers and encouragment to get out and use it more, starting with the waterfalls and back yard kind of things.

    Puts me in a good mood just seeing this thread pop up every so often! Can't wait to get back... and maybe check out the "harder to get to" fall down from Blue Hen you were telling us about, John? If anyone is interested in making the trek with me!

    And of course if you decide to do some shooting of your own during this round, John, my offer of carrying each others packs is still good.
