    Re: MF (6x4.5,6x6,6x7,6x9,6x12) B&W film images sharing

    Thank You! Thing about those MF versions...while I'd originally thought I might enlarge them to at least 30x40 - going for a really moody, grainy, ethereal feel...these really don't work well (for me) much larger than 20x24. But the LF (5x7) versions work really well - up to 40x60.

    Star Island (one of the "Isles of Shoals") is very small...about 450 acres - but is home to a U.U. Church based conference center, and is more like a small village - but only in the summer months. A wonderful community, and while my wife and myself are not church goers, and while most of the conferences are not religiously oriented, there is indeed a spirit to the place (and those who attend) which is much akin to our own.

    Plus...the island (or at least the very diverse, convoluted periphery) remains relatively wild. I can be photographing at East Rock, or at East Bay below this - and, especially when the fog and surf are simultaneously active, it feels as if I'm at the end of the earth. And yet, within minutes, I can be up at the conference center...itself a large, old (150yrs) wooden structure (built in the tradition of NH's "Grand Hotels"), perhaps sitting in one of the forty or so rockers on its long, wraparound porch...chatting with one or more kindred spirits about art, history, the weather, what have you (maybe even photography!).

    But I've saved the best for last! I've been going out to Star with my wife for the past 12 years (sadly canceled last season, but hopefully back this year)...always for the same ten days in early Sept. - as my wife, a nurse practitioner, volunteers as medical staff...and I get to be her "guest." Costs us nothing, and while I do tend to do a bit of volunteer work on the island (typically carpentry-related), I'm always sure to let the volunteer coordinator know that if the fog rolls in, I'll likely drop what I'm doing so that I can be out on the rocks photographing! Seeing as I've donated several prints to help the island raise funds...the coordinator has no issue with this!

    Finally, I do need to mention that the island's entire population heads to the mainland after late Oct., and for the next six months there is but one inhabitant...a caretaker names Alexandra de Steiguer, who happens to be an amazingly talented photographic artist, who has a wonderful book out, called "One Woman's Island," based on her twenty two years of care taking at Star. She's also represented by the Pucker Gallery, located on Newbury St. in Boston. Look her up!

    I found Alexandra online not long after making my post. Her photography is quite wonderful, and I enjoyed this video:

    I like the first more. The composition seems better. I like the haze on both and color.
