    Bryan, nice job. Yes that subject matter is perfect for an 8x20 shot.

    Bryan,
    Thanks for joining us with some fine work. I've always been a fan of the first image of yours. Nicely done.

    Jim,
    Beautiful Carbon prints, keep them coming. August is a long month.

    Here is my image for today. With the talk of a storm coming up the coast this week, it got me thinking about the shore again. This is Absecon Lighthouse, Atlantic City, NJ from 2005. This was Atlantic City pre-Sandy and before a casino was built at what would have been just left out of the image. There is a lighthouse there through the decay.

    Many of you know I love my trees! Here is a shot I did in Yosemite some time ago. I was in El Capitan meadow and my wife told me there were cars stopping in the road to watch me. One guy walked up to me and asked what I was doing? Really, how do you answer a question like that. I told him I was photographing the light! He had a puzzled look on his face as he walked away, I smiled.

    Jim,
    Something about the big camera always makes people stop and say something. I was working at a lighthouse in Maine and a small group from of tourists from Canada came up. They were very polite, they waited until I had made my image and then had to ask questions. Since I had made my exposure, I let them look under the dark cloth to see what I was photographing. You know the next line they had to say..... "It's upside down?"

    After I put away the camera, my wife said they were more interested in photographing me make my image, instead of photographing the lighthouse.

    We do have some trees back here in the East. Today are a couple of images of the Hudson River, the first one from Hyde Park, NY and the other from Highlands, NY.

    George, wonderful images! I've always been willing to educate the curious onlooker too. Many times I've done the same thing. My wife has told me the exact same thing . The people are more interested in photographing me than the scene I'm shooting. I often get asked how old my cameras are and when I tell the I built it, well that's a different story.

    Jim,
    It is funny how you almost always get asked the same questions while out with the big cameras. How old is that camera? Do they still make film for it? Why not just shoot digital, it's easier?

    I try to let people look to see what's on the ground glass. I like seeing their eyes as they come out from under the dark cloth. It's like they have just seen the world for the first time.
