Re: Day at the Zoo

Yeah but I think it’s just a matter of time before Ilford pulls the plug on FP4+ too.

Day at the Zoo

Hi all - A few weeks ago we went to the Elmwood Park zoo in Norristown. Small zoo. Very nice little place in general. Kind of cold in early March. We got there about an hour before closing, and it was 36F. Think, outside, we saw four animals. Inside maybe another ten. Small zoo, like I said. But we ...

Re: Overdue, in so many ways

These make me pine for warmer weather. And color film. Definitely that. Nicely done PF.

Re: Sparks...

Thanks guys. We're not quite empty nesters yet, but the day is coming quick. My son was home for Spring break last week - was nice having him home, but he's very much into his own schedule and priorities now, as he should be. My daughter has a few months to go, and overall she's ready. FWIW, I got t...

Re: One lens for each "Orquidea"

First one is my favorite - enough background detail to keep it a little interesting, but not enough context to make it distracting. Yep - #1.

Re: Sparks...

Thanks everyone - good discussion! FWIW, woodworking is something else I have no time for these days. I have about a dozen or so handplanes, the #18 is probably my favorite, but the #5 is probably most used. I have a #65 block which is similar to the #18 but beds the iron at a lower angle. Much bett...

Sparks...

...first I've felt in ages. Burned some film today, first large format since, like, 10/2017. I've kind of lost the spark with photography. No time, other priorities, change of life. But it felt good to spend as much time as I wanted today. Nice. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7809/32281542927_107d02...

Re: Seneca Improved View 8x10 Project

Last time I posted to this was four months to the day. Hmmm. So this weekend I got a little time and worked on the back. "Minor surgery" is what I thought at first. This is turning into a bit of an involved resurrection. There were 21 holes of different sizes drilled through the back in all areas - ...

Re: Paris, and a new camera...

Thanks, James. I thought I'd miss the viewfinder but it became quite intuitive quickly, and with the touchscreen all the settings and controls were immediately available. It is a different way of shooting though. My son gave me a coupon for Christmas - a photography travel trip, the two of us. Large...
