    Backlit Weeds, Soft Focus

    Gelatin-silver photograph on Fomabrom Variant III VC FB photographic paper, image size 19.3cm X 24.6cm, from a 8x10 Fomapan 200 negative exposed in a Tachihara 810HD triple extension field view camera fitted with a 300mm f7.5 Wollaston style meniscus lens mounted behind a Copal #3 shutter. Taking this photograph caused camera damage. The sun is just out of frame with the consequence that the sun's image fell on one of the bellows pleats and burned a neat, round, 3 mm hole in the bellows. The camera is beginning to fill with smoke at the moment of exposure.
    Photography:first utterance. Sir John Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society. "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..".

    W. H. Jackson was a American photographer best known for his pictures of the American West, including views of Yellowstone Park about 1870. Vigorous and healthy into old age he was a technical advisor to the movie "Gone With the Wind" in 1939 at age 96, dying a few years later at age 99.
    In 1898, he became president of the Detroit Publishing Company.
    Apparently he travelled to Toronto to look at an association with The new University of Toronto publishing company after it was established in 1901.
    Here is Jackson at age 58 taken with a 9 1/2 inch Darlot meniscus in a sewer pipe fitted on a Betax shutter; apparently another lens left behind by Floyd in another extraterrestrial lens theft.

    Yes, that lens certainly has the signature of a Petzval. I was surprised.

    Captain Englehorn of the SS Venture was the captain of the ship that brought back the giant ape King Kong. although the poor animal was killed, Captain Englehorn toured the vaudeville theaters and fairs with a Slide show presentation. He headed the bill at the Tivoli in Hamilton for 2 weeks! And stopped for a portrait at A. M. Cunningham's old place just down the street at 3 James Street N.

    Edmund Rice (c. 1594 3 May 1663) landed in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in summer or fall of 1638 leaving Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. I am one of 2.7 million descendants. Amazingly, of all the millions, I am the most like him in facial features. A Velostigmat ll 14inch with diffusion feature at f8.
