I’m excited to be back in the woods! This morning, I went back, without fog, and stayed for almost two hours. I was on a hunt for wildflowers, but they were not to be found. I looked high and low, hither and yon, to and fro and not a wildflower was spotted. Oh well. I had a great time listing to the woodpeckers, the squirrels scampering about, and the trickle of the stream. On the way I out I saw…

Curves Going over my photos from the past several years and preparing my books has been a great learning experience. Previously, I’d take the photos and move on. Now, having to go back to the past photos, evaluate them for inclusion in a book, and really ‘see’ them again has opened my eyes to what I really like and where I think that I connect in photography. Most of the photos that I selected, where I really felt that I…

It was my desire to make it to the other side of town this weekend, but it was so windy and cold that I decided to skip it. This morning, I awoke, checked the iPhone to see what the morning’s weather would bring. To my surprise and happiness, there was an non-precipitation warning: Dense Fog Advisory.

Here, no matter what the season, I’d find a variety of plants to photograph, either outside, or inside the greenhouse. Both venues were free to visit at any time. Since I moved to the south side of town, some 30+ miles away, I’ve looked for an acceptable substitute, but have found…

A bit of sunshine I looked at my blog and saw that the last time that I posted was about a week ago, on the 15th. It happens every once in a while. I just don’t have anything to say. This also coincided, almost to the day, the last time that I had taken any photos. That is unusual. I usually take at least a picture or two. The last 10 days, it seems, have been unseasonably cool, and, for…

Leica M6 – Ilford HP5+ – Rodinal 1:50 I was reading a post over at Shutterfinger. Gordon was talking about the cameras that he’s known and loved. In his post said that he made a list of all the cameras that he’s ever owned. That list came to 30 or so cameras; unfortunately, he didn’t share the entire list, but did share some information about a few of his favorites. I began to think about how many cameras I’ve owned…
