    Re: In Praise of 5x7... Post'em !

    Ha, it looks no worse for wear for all of that.:) Definitely digging the composition here, though I tend to crop my 5x7's in portrait orientation to "5x6" (and it might even be worth exploring a...

  3. Re: Almost catastrophie for my Pentax Analog Spot Meter

    Kudos for the Bishop Berkley joke (though I'm definitely of the Dr Johnson persuasion and refute a lot of things thus.;))

    Re: Paracord uses

    Two words for y'all: Norwegian welt.;) (FWIW, I do keep a playing card's worth of duct tape as part of my "render aid" kit for just that reason.)

    At any rate, I'll throw 950 Technora into the mix...

    I'm afraid you might have missed a couple from earlier in the year: UT's Ewing Gallery had an exhibition of Walker Evans prints, while those soft-handed Uber-drivers over in Asheville had a nice...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I love kicking around the "Celtic Fringe" as well, but that's just an outstanding photograph--love how the acute angles at the top contrast with OOF area in the field. Hope it prints big for you.:)

    Generally October is one of our drier months, but I would always take a shell just in case. Otherwise it's possible that it might be warmer than you expect--but of course make sure you're drinking...
