    When I get too old for an e-assist, perhaps I'll switch to an ebike with a throttle. One thing about the curbsidecycle design, one puts a lot of...

    When one is heading south, for some, Southern California starts somewhere just north of Santa Rosa. For example, Hopland is a nice little northern CA town, especially Old Hopland. Southern...

    Beautifully done, Gregg. Love the lower right corner and how it affects how one takes the whole image in (and backed up by the opposite corner.)

    Re: Ebike?

    With the 5x7, the camera bag can stay on the bike for road/trail side use. Still thinking about best ways for 8x10 or 11x14.

    Re: Recommending Mary Alinder's Ansel biography

    I also enjoyed her follow up, Group f.64, 2014. She gives a different and interesting perspective of the Adams-Mortensen debates. Nicely footnoted and indexed, also.

    I use every movement my camera can do on just about every image I make -- it is just that I use most of the movements zeroed out most of the time. :cool:

    For 5x8, using an 8x10 with internal dividers to put two 5x8 images on a sheet of 8x10 film seems a way to go -- and you can go 8x10 if an image calls for it...or even make a couple 4x10s...
