Re: Daniel Boone Homestead

Mike, I used to work in Harleysville at a med device company. Out by the parking lot, under a bush, was a small marker that described how Washington had spent the night in a barn nearby directing troops. No one who worked there even knew about the marker. It's so commonplace here. I had no idea you ...

Re: Petzval rudbeckia

Thanks so much, Bill!

PF, every time I use this little lens I'm more impressed with it. Off an ICA projector, somewhere in the early 19-teens (https://ludens.cl/photo/ica/projector.html).

Re: Daniel Boone Homestead

Yeah, it is sad. Very disappointing. There is a fair bit of construction gear stacked up behind the house, so I'm hopeful that they'll do something to bring the place back soon. That said, the visitor center is closed, so they're not bringing any money in, and this site had pretty severe cutbacks a ...

Daniel Boone Homestead

Hi all - My daughter and I went out today to shoot. Went to the nearby Daniel Boone homestead historical site. Was his childhood home. I think he was in his teens when he left. The house is still intact, and a number of other local historical buildings were moved onsite to conserve them. We hadn't b...

Jack's the paranormal investigator now. Ozzy is just paranormal.

Re: 18x24cm Portraiture

Thanks Alex. X-ray has gained quite a following for 8x10 and larger in recent years, largely due to the fractional cost relative to panchromatic film. There are some trade-offs, but it works fairly well. X-ray is double-sided emulsion; mammography film is single-sided, which simplifies things. The l...

18x24cm Portraiture

Hi all - Weather was overcast today, which I'm finding helps a bit with the mammography film (Fujifilm UM-MA). Decided, between spits of drizzle, to shoot a couple sheets on the kids. Maddie had (virtual) convocation today, and was dressed nicely, so all the better. https://live.staticflickr.com/655...
