Color transparency, slide film, reversal film. Names for the premier color film. Fuji, Agfa, Kodak. The king “Kodachrome” rich saturated color. Have a roll of Velvia in one of my cameras now.
A couple mornings ago it was the mid 70s and I awoke to American Beauty. Jerry singing Ripple, “let there be songs to fill the air” coffee is on Tom and I sing along, Kirsten rubbing her eyes and getting ready to run. Some home made toast and Jam. Badminton, beer and pot. Westford Vt. moments that lasted forever etched into my soul. The cast in this 65 YO calendar has changed but Kirsten and I remain “Listen to the River Sing Sweet Songs to Rock My Soul” and the others are warm memories to visit often.
Digital the present, a new muse. The medium doesn’t identify or obstruct the creation. It is not about what your technology can’t do it is about making your technology do what you want.
The future a dream we race towards not sure if we arrive or just continue to race forward. Here the future is 7 months away. Birth, youth and the road to the future has a new traveler. Thirty year old Nikon Tri X warm tone Silver Gelatin Print my preferred road to all points.
Days, daze meander by as creativity visits from present and past. Memories of days in Willi wandering around the hill with Hugh shooting publicity photos as Hugh works on a new political song “Bills Dick” 1996 or so. I shoot a few we walk Hugh tries different verses we laugh. Let’s go to the carnival in Willi a carnival without rain very strange.
