Andrew I'm late to the party as usual, but your photos are beautiful. Moving.

Thanks Diane. Ego-boo is always appreciated (though unwarranted :) )

Finally got to the small amount of film I exposed on my recent cross country sojourn here are some quick-y scans of the negatives:

"Stacked"

"Wisconsin Pinstripes"

It never fails that I over-pack. For our 10 day trip I packed 4 different camera systems (Large Format, Medium Format, 35mm, Digital), enough film to open a camera shop, 2 tripods, and other "necessities". The reality though - I used two cameras (the 4x5 and the digital (not including iPhone imagery)), exposed 6 sheets of film, and only used the DSLR for a family portrait.

Of course if I hadn't packed all that crap, I would have been seriously bummed about the shot I couldn't make because I didn't have the right gear. Sigh... #firstworldproblems

It's been kinda quiet lately due to preparations for an annual photographer's retreat (now completed). While I've got a bit of unprocessed work to go through, I thought I might share this piece:

Really love this collection Andrew. Beautifully done and wonderfully seasonal!

On my various websites, kemosabe.

I will contribute a few here when I get a chance though. I'd be in very good company.

Andrew and Mark and others will appreciate that I'm in that point of a trip where I think I have a few magic shots in camera and can't wait to get home to see if I've caught what I intended.

There have been a couple of truly startling landscapes in front of my kens and I'm sincerely hoping I've caught them the way they deserve to be preserved.

I can appreciate that. I've got about a dozen sheets of film from my latest jaunt now awaiting processing. I end up posting a lot of "sketches" using my iPhone while I'm traveling and that helps satisfy the need to see and share (to a small degree).

Now that the weather here is finally cooling a bit I can process film without needing to cram 5 lb ice blocks into my processor. Serious pain in the ass, lemme tell ya.

Oh and Frank? When are you going to post an original FC creation? I'm sure that I'm not the only one here who's curious to see what goes on in that head.
