The Old Bacon Academy on the green in Colchester Ct. Five pm windy and brisk but still daylight. Triangles, doorways, reflections of spring trees. Many of the subjects I have been photographing from the seventies till now. The tech data for those of you who like to know how “good the camera is LOL” Image is digital made on a old rebel the camera not me, ok both of us The Canon EOS Rebel 6.1 megs shot on Manual [the only mode I use] metered with a Lunar Pro. In other words I use it the same way I shoot film. enjoy pjc
A collage of color and life at “The Salem Herb Farm” a place I visit as often as I can it renews me with color plants, a great variety of chickens some sporting Mohawk hair dos. Goats, an Emu with magic and peace filling the spring air I highly recommend a visit for you seedlings, flowers and soul. These plants are grown locally with love, not trucked in to the big box.

Still here in the past this from 2001 an image I sometimes love and sometimes feel it is a near miss. Image made on film scanned from print with a little burning and dodging to fit this medium for viewing. Prints of course are the best way of viewing. My images are simple, not simplistic. Simplicity is the hardest concept to grasp. In this latest and greatest new and improved world. Perhaps the shot is too busy? Perhaps mundane? Well my B+W is all shot on film composed in the viewfinder printed without cropping. I am repeating myself sorry. A story partially told you can ponder and add the rest of the story. See Andrea’s comment. While drinking coffee late this morning I was on another site where the photographer had loaded a roll of film yesterday and last night dreamed he had blown the whole roll. “Waking” in the dream he tried to look at the histogram but film has not histogram nor preview window on the back. Awake and posting on Google+ he was considering the idea of throwing out the film and putting away the film camera and throwing out the film without exposing. I guess he could not work without crutches anymore. Perhaps he was kidding? But I know all too many photographers who seek an instant destination rather than a journey. So what do you think? Is my image to busy? Does it lead you to memories? enjoy pjc
