Heading Towards Fall

So. We are still sick and getting sicker. But, that’s okay. It feels like your classic summer cold. I may have peaked and I think I might start getting better tomorrow. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. When my head is clear and I’m not coughing, I’ve been looking at older work. I’m not sure to what end, but it’s been a lot of fun. I’m able to review older images and think about what makes them good, better and best. Or, just junk. I’ve also been able to look at my progress over the past few years. Few being about 25 years. Depending on my mood, either I think I was a better photographer when I was younger, or I’m getting better as I age. Either is fine with me. I just don’t want to remain stuck in one place.

Anyway. These pictures. First, the only post production that I did on any, or all, of them was to clean things up and make the images a little closer to what I saw in my mind’s eye when I pushed the button. As far as each of the images go, Chicago, Santa Cruz, New York and Santa Fe. That’s where I made them. Oh, one more thing. When I say old, I mean old. These are all scanned from film. I think that the scans are great. Big 60 meg things made by a lab in New Orleans called Moldaners. Can’t beat the quality and can’t beat the price.

    All very good.More dreamy than what you do now.
    Take lots of zinc for your cold.

    Thank you. I think the dreaminess comes from the media. All of those are film images. Nowhere near the flexibility we have now. And, much more organic. Digital anything — pictures or music — has a sterile feel to it.

    All of those more holistic treatments don’t really work unless you have been taking them well before you caught the virus. They work wonders then. Once the virus is in you, all you can do is make yourself somewhat comfortable and live by the old country saying; ” a cold takes a week to come, a week to have and a week to leave.” 🙂
