    What a great time we had at Mark's place, and I really enjoyed meeting all of you. Mark is a gracious, knowledgeable host, and it was amazing to see some of his prints "live."

    I'll second that! It was great to meet and talk to other LF photographers; to see Mark's massive collection of lenses, enlargers and cameras, and to watch Garett's expert demonstration of wet plate. Great fun! I'll post a few pictures after I get back to Bangkok.

    Thanks again Mark for providing such excellent hospitality to a poor tourist from Bangkok. I hope to return the favor over there someday.

    Best, Tim

    Thanks, Garrett! For anyone curious, we had a nice little turnout: Garrett, Tim Meisburger, and a few other local lf photographers, Tony, Anh, Mike, Ria, and myself.

    Garrett was definitely the star of the evening, making a few wet plates in my backyard, and helping me through making my first wet plate ever! And it actually worked! (see below...)

    I'm sure we'll do it again, so anyone around Tucson, or passing through, if you have an interest, let me know...

    JoJo wanted to attend but he left his home in Tuscon, Arizona for some California grass.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Your bike plate came out nice Mark. Here is the optimal plate I did:

    That's a lovely plate, Garrett! I'm really impressed by that little Hermagis Petzval.

    I may have to pick on you more about this wet-plate stuff...

    Sure thing, we'll do some more. And I love the Hermagis too, I've never seen a bad image on the ground glass with it (though I can't always capture what I see with wetplate). And as our two plates attest, the swirl can be modulated.

    You know, we've etymologically debated and metaphysically discussed the Japanese word "bokeh" ad nauseum. I wonder if the Japanese are having the same discussions over the term "swirlies"?

    (Of course, if they do trace the etymology, what they probably find will be not that far from what we discovered tracing the roots of "giclee"! )
