It's been a while (about a month or more) since I've exercised a camera, but Easter Monday was a day off from work that was beautiful if chilly. The photographs below were made in tiny Craigville at a small, memorial park. I have photographed here before, but not actually printed the negatives as I wanted to come back and use the 4x5 rather than the C220. The time I spent was very satisfying, and these two images were my favorites of the eight films I exposed.

Despite some pretty hideous weather on Saturday, our opening went very nicely. Susan, Devin and I sat all alone by our very own selves for the first 15 minutes or so thinking gloomy thoughts and staring at all the food and wine that was going to go to waste, when all of a sudden people began to arrive and the "party" really got going. I was too busy chatting with visitors to count heads, but it seemed to be well attended after all, and two of my photographs were purchased into the bargain. That was a nice feeling. Now I can start working on a new project, and begin the long process of building a new body of work. It can be arduous to be sure, but for me at least, it's better than golf! ;-)
