National Camera Day 2020

National Camera Day was actually yesterday, but I had a full schedule to work on, thus while taking notice, I had to defer writing anything about it.

Getting out side with some film today

I took a short break-out walk with the camera and some expired 120 film today. First time out with a non-digital camera since the California COVID shelter-in-place order in early March.

China rough edit completed

I am a bit compulsive and even when I have few other things to do, I still deferred to work on the rough edit of this body of work. Which is now done. Whew! So the final tally is 190 photographs winnowed down from the original 4,000 photographs I made while in China. Not all... Continue Reading →

TechTransfer riffs

In my last update about my TechTransfer project I had discussed how this project was continuing to evolve. At that time I had converted 108 images to Black & White, and now I am up to 160 converted photographs. Musically I can sense a number of different riffs on this body of work so I...
