Wednesday Sunset

First, off, I wish to congratulate Izad in Singapore on his Rebel 2000. I'm curious how long it will take to find it's way to you. The camera giveaway was part of a my sharing efforts, along with test prints packs, which are still available and await your requests. I have 6 international first class stamps left. The sharing efforts also represent a celebration of my digital photography as I spend the month of February finalizing 40 prints of my work. The black and white images will be printed by Eric at Digital Silver Imaging in New York. I have yet to finalize my lab for color printing and appreciate suggestions. The prints will be featured in a month-long, open studio show and available for purchase. Also included will be a few 8x10 enlargements from 110, and hopefully some 8x10 enlargements from instant film. (andrewdbarron [you know, at] gmail.com)

I'm gearing up for large format shooting for 2011! Yes, yes, 2011; the centennial year for the births of Robert Johnson and Bill Monroe.

Busy day. It started off very nice. Pictured here is a nested tale that I will get to over time.

Image taken from an bay auctionOn the left, a roll of unprocessed Plus-X Pan PX135-20. This roll was with an empty container from a mortuary used to transport ashes. As morbid as that sounds, the last thing my friend could deal with after the funeral in 2005 was processing ancient film. Being a film enthusiast comes with this responsibility. It will be sent to Blue Moon Camera & Machine in Portland, Oregon tomorrow.

The medium format (2½”) slides are a combination of chromes and handmade glass plates, about 60 years old. The adventure may begin with an Epson 700V.

Tonight, I raced out to my secret detour for sunset with the 18-55 kit lens that flares nice, and of course, my Hipstamatic.

I have come to conclude that the VR function on my lens sacrifices sharpness. This image is not a test, but here's a handheld with it off.

I won a Minolta Zoom 110 tonight on ebay and I look forward to shooting my last rolls of 110.

Sound as ever,
Andrew
