From a year or so ago.
Leica M-6  50mm f/2
Tri-X  Diafine

I have used Diafine since it came out way back in the 60's.
It has not always been my favorite developer
 but it has always had a place on my shelf.

Onward & Upward

Growth, change, moving onward and upward;
those are the signs of a progressive society.

Small churches like this have been eclipsed by the megachurch.

Is growth always better?  Is bigger always better?

How about some growth and change that leads us
past the old mythology. Past the old ideas that 
have kept us killing each other for thousands of years.

Past the traditional labels of conservative and liberal......
Past the willingness to kill
 just because someone used the wrong "magic words".
Or, worse yet, used the right words in the wrong way.

Past the idea that if you are correct, 
that means that I must be wrong.
Past the "one way".......or the "my way is the only way"......
These ideas are part of the "old myth"....
that has done nothing but cause conflict for thousands of years.

Isn't it about time for us to grow and change....

Divine Dish

Talk about connected.
Some folks pray.
Some folks meditate.
These guy are really hooked up.

So, after church on Sunday it gets ESPN. 
We hope.
Might make it worth showing up ...... not.

I took a break from show printing last Saturday
 and drove down into southern Ohio.

Amazing the odd things you find.
