In a previous post I talked about an issue that I was having with a roll of film. I sent the information to Ilford, they requested additional information such processing type, type, temperature, etc. I provided the information. Here’s what I got back within a couple of days: Hi Paul, Thanks so much for your very detailed response and for the scans showing the problem. When I saw them yesterday I had an idea what the problem could be but…

Photograph by Tim Starnes I have a feeling that, for me, 2011 will be the year of the portrait. Why? Why not?! I just am ‘feeling’ portraits this year. The above portrait of Shilpa, one of the Three Amigos, I think, is a lovely, honest portrait. Though she did sit there on the stairs to have her photo taken, she was looking down the street at something and Tim “Eagle Eye” Starnes, another member of the Three Amigos, took this…

Film issue? Photographer issue? I’ve certainly experienced my share of poor customer service. One day I pulled into the drive through of a certain fast food restaurant, who shall remain nameless. Let us just say they have golden arches and are headed by a clown! Anyway, I pull up, place my order once. I am asked to repeat it. i do so. I am asked to repeat it again. I do so. OK.

Good question. I had them out and hadn’t put them away just yet. I was getting ready to go out and take photos in the snow and was…

Yesterday was a routine Sunday for me: Get up, go to Tai Chi, come back, clean up the apartment, send Tim a text message to find out where and when we are going to eat lunch. The only difference on this morning was that I didn’t go for a walk. In general, I take off about 1 Sunday every 3 or 4 weeks to let my legs get a bit of needed rest. However, on this day, the muse was…

I see this house every morning. I like the way that it is situated on the property. In the summer, the sun rises and shines directly on the front porch. In the winter, as in this photo, the sunrise is more to the south, or side porch. I’ve often thought what a great place that would be to sit in the morning, reading a paper, and watching the kids arrive at a school. An elementary school is right across the…
