I've had mixed feelings about this as an 11x14 print thinking it might be better smaller (too strongly graphic perhaps), but I've now decided that I like it that large. It was made from a 4x5 negative in a Shen-Hao camera. I think the lens was a 250mm Fujinon, but I'm not certain.

I've finally gotten around to printing this. It was taken in November of last year with the P67 and 135mm lens. It's been printed on the last of my Ilford Warmtone 8x10 FB paper. As an 8x10 (though it may someday be printed larger) it's a little gem. That day was a very successful outing that resulted in several 'keepers'.

Common visions....similar 'graphs.

I was looking through my new copy of John Sexton's excellent book Recollections, and noticed that Plate 32 looked a lot like a 'graph I made on Schunnemunk mountain a number of years ago. Well, of course, I'm not comparing my work to Mr. Sexton's in any other way than to have noticed there's a similar subject arranged similarly to his, but I thought that was pretty cool.

Starting out.

This is my first journal/blog/online gallery. I'll be curious about how conscientious I can be about keeping it current. Hmmmm.....we'll see!!
