Re: Would You, Or Do you, Or Have You Returned to (Or Never Left) FILM?

That third one is plenty scary! I wonder if the crew survived, and were they hauling freight or passengers? Was your grandfather a photographer for the GNRR? He did a really professional job! An internet search reveals that an avalanche hit a GNRR train on January 22, 1916 in the Cascades killing 8...

Re: Would You, Or Do you, Or Have You Returned to (Or Never Left) FILM?

Perhaps if I had a darkroom and a good enlarger or two, the chemicals, and paper (all pretty much beyond my means, now) I would still consider occasionally taking my analog camera along on photographic forays. Mind you, I would also have a digital with me, too. I was often never very satisfied with ...

Re: Would You, Or Do you, Or Have You Returned to (Or Never Left) FILM?

My comments on long term survival of analog photographic images. I have several thousand black and white negatives, Some date to the very early 1900's. A couple are on glass plates. Most are in archival sleeves. Many, even some of the oldest, are in almost perfect condition. Others, not treated so w...

Re: Baby Burden

I especially love to see beautiful orb webs. Once many years ago, an Argiope auriantia made a huge web covering my front door. For weeks, until the spider decided to move its web elsewhere, I used the back door or garage door to exit the house. The Argiope auriantia with the katydid --

Re: Feeding Time

I have only seen one great blue heron nest close enough to photograph. There were triplets when I shot them, but a week or two later, down to just two. They were so aggressive when the parent flew it, it was jaw-dropping drama to observe! You are right about that. I wondered how that parent managed...

Re: CANDIDMAN: Pre-Toddlers' Fire House Field Trip

Andi's daycare looks like a great place. Since the firehouse seems close enough to be walking distance away, perhaps they will try again and Gramps will go along and finally get the toddlers gazing adoringly up at handsome rugged firefighters and their big fire engines. Clearly the day was not a tot...

Re: Vases in Windows

Old buildings like these have such great character. You have done a super job capturing it. I like the second the best. In the other, if the shade weren't pulled in one of the windows and it had similar goodies behind it, the choice would be harder. Guess I have a little bit of peeping tom in me. In...

Re: Would You, Or Do you, Or Have You Returned to (Or Never Left) FILM?

On the theory that one should never say never, I'll simply say I seriously doubt I will return to film (although getting out my childhood Spartus did call to me for a brief nostalgic moment). I'm too impatient, I want to know what I captured. In film days as soon as I finished a roll, unless I was o...

Re: Swamp - Spring Knees

I think the atmosphere is great! I actually like the DOF. To me it is the best part of the image. It takes me deeper into the swamp where I would not venture otherwise. Cyprus knees have always captivated me. I would love to see them more clearly, although it is obviously not your fault because the ...

Re: "PT Visits"

I, too, love the second one. I totally agree with Charles. A superb composition, wonderful light, perfectly processed.
