    Re: What's your #1 anxiety about LF (in your personal life)?

    #3 for me. We all live busy lives. I used to do this work professionally (assisting and lab work). What I found in life was "it's better to make $ and do the things you like on the side". That's just me, it may be different for other people who want to pursue it full time.

    All my processing stuff is temporary these days. So setting up and breaking down to process and even scanning takes a bit of time. Time away from other things.

    Feels like this year we've all been stuck in (our) little towns!

    Geez I wasn't anxious, but now I'm feeling guilty for not getting more done.

    This Covid 19 thing has stopped me from working with my younger, more exposed friends. I really love medium format too. But contact prints are my favorite thing, regardless of size.

    Topic for another thread perhaps...specifically about how much or little we've accomplished photographically during the pandemic. Not quite brave enough to start this - but if nobody else does then maybe I will.

    I sometimes worry about money, that something will come along, once in a lifetime, that I don't have "mad money" to buy. I'm not a vegetarian but I use a pressure cooker to prepare dry beans, that I buy in 25 lb bags at the Amish grocery. I would bet that I spend the majority of my "non-essential spending" on old photo stuff, tools etc. I wouldn't own a boat, if I had room maybe a little underpowered sports car.

    I'm going to try to behave, lots of stuff to print, and keep me busy.

    Running out of time and running out of health. There is so much I'd like to photograph on big beautiful negatives.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
