I've been going through my negative file for stuff I've not printed at all for one reason or another. This is a square crop of a 4x5 negative I made last spring I think. No photographer can continue to exist without having made an image of this timeworn subject (written with tongue planted firmly against cheek). This is my first. It's an endearing and enduring subject despite its ubiquity. Perhaps I will make more in the future as lily pads are alluring. ;-)

I've not posted here for a while because I've been too busy "finishing" prints for exhibition to have had time to make new ones. The two 'graphs below are from a storm that was predicted to be a major one, but turned out to be a very beautiful, but low accumulation event. I was able to hijack a little time to make these from our deck. The lower one is from a venerable old character that has learned to weather the wind and weight of heavy snow. The upper is the same view as an earlier post. I will probably make many more very similar 'graphs, because there are infinite variations of light and circumstances that beg to be recorded. Both were made with the Shen-Hao 4x5 using the Fujinon 250mm lens. I love where I live!
