    Re: post alternative techniques

    You need goats on trampolines. Have you tried even closer to the monster -- sort of raking its whole side using a little swing on the 5x7?

    Cool, Bryan. The low angle of the light is great -- especially the blueness of the shadows against the warmth of the mineral(?) stain.

    Also with the influence of the Smokey the Bear campaign and clear-cutting, over the years large areas got heavily over-stocked with trees. This creates a greater demand for water, which in drought...

    Not to be confused with rarebit. Something my mom would cook up towards the end of the month before my dad's next paycheck would come in. Melted Velveeta Cheese over Saltine Crackers. I liked it.

    Perhaps the anti-halation layer did not completely wash off...and it might have some UV blocking ability.

    I found that out -- all my 16x10s were matted to 20x24 back in my early years -- not enough space...I prefer 24x28.
