The prints fit nicely into the Givi topcase. Glad I got it.
I've been suggesting for awhile now that Gordon get a motorcycle or scooter and have quietly shared how amazing it is to ride. Last week sent me an email saying he found the registration papers for a Harley Davidson that he didn't know his father owned before he was born. Over the past few months he's talked about riding and I almost thought I had him until he shared this comment from his daughter:
"You already look like a biker dad. You don't need a motorcycle."
Oh well, looks like photography will continue.
Here's the take from last week. Rushed as usual. Process late Saturday afternoon, print Saturday evening, wonder why the prints are damp on Sunday morning.
Shot one roll of Ilford HP5+ and processed it in TMAX developer. [YOU ALL KNOW YOU CAN CLICK ON THESE IMAGES TO SEE THE BIG VERSIONS RIGHT?]
Junior during a Saturday morning walk through Boalsburg. He's getting to the point when he sees me raise the camera he sits down. It's a problem sometimes when I want him standing. We're working on it.
Shot this same thing with the iPhone earlier in the week. I think I like the black and white image better. Wish I wasn't so rushed to print so I could get a little more from the negative. Rushing. I have to look at the stress component some more.
Shooting with the iPhone is so easy and engaging in a way that's hard to describe. I've been shooting a lot with it but have failed to post much here. This quasi-riding/dog picture was made last week with the iPhone using the Camera+ app.
Haven't ridden the Vespa since Sunday evening. Have an appointment with the doctor in the morning and am uncertain if I should show up riding or in the truck. Don't want to tempt him to say, "Don't ride for awhile."
I suppose I'm open to whatever is going to happen...
