Barn Wall

What a busy month!
The show at Springfield Museum has been taken down.
I count it a success. Lots of great comments.
Thanks to all of you who took the time to come to see it.
I wish that I could meet you all personally.
My next scheduled show is Oct & Nov
at the Gallery at Carriage Hill Metro Park.

That gives me time to work on other projects
and to catch up on printing & shipping orders.

Chapel Ridge Church-Revisited

The weather person said that yesterday
was to be rain/ thunderstorms.
So of course, I had to go out with my camera.

For the entire 90 min drive I was watching
the sky become more & more ominous.

It seemed to peak just as I reached this
church-on-the-hill and set up the camera.

Unfortunately, the sky soon began
to clear and the day became
bright and sunny.
Which brought out the tourists and
raised the brightness range to a
point of no photos.

Ah well, it was a good day for a
little while.

Fallen Tree in Black and White

A photo from the "shoebox".
You know, that wonderful free storage bin that
we all used when we started out with film.

Some of us (me) still have that
shoe box full of negatives.
Now, it is not that I did not start a
proper filing system for the negs.
I started one and used it very well
over the years.....but,
the shoe box somehow evaded my
efforts. It has remained just as I
last saw it years ago.

So, with the new scanner just
sitting here waiting for me
and the shoe box making me at
least a slight bit guilty.
I went to work.

This was taken with the old Leica,
on Plus X film, developed in D-76.
Located in the Hocking Hills area.
Just downstream from Cedar Falls,
I once took students there and
watched as they didn't see this scene
until I pointed it out to them.

Glen Canyon

On a trip to Lima a few weeks ago
I picked up a new scanner.
This is the first time I have had to try it out.

An older image, from the 1960's,
on Kodachrome 25.
Seems to work well.

Now, I can begin the long job
of scanning all of my old images.

Thank you Charles, it works great.

Ash Cave

Ash Cave in the beautiful Hocking Hills Area.

This day was almost perfect. It had been 
raining and since this is a run-off falls
it was flowing well.
The sun light was reflecting from the sand
up into the cave, giving illumination to
the rock roof.

All in all, a very good day.
