    Daylight is burning, so I guess it is time to leave. A big orange ball just cleared the trees. :-)

    This was fun today everyone! Just need to drop 50 degrees out of that temperature.

    Ty,

    Thank you for your and Tina's wonderful hospitality yesterday.
    Your worries about not being a great teacher proved to be wrong!
    I think we all learned quite a bit about the wet plate process and had a ton of fun on top of that.
    Again, thank you very much for a great day.

    Ty,

    I'd also like to thank you and Tina's for having all of us over at your place, and for taking time to show us your craft. For me, it definately had the "Wow" factor.

    Thank you again!

    The meet was fantastic. Thank you Ty and Tina for hosting this event. Seeing JB and Susan Harlan's photographs alone would have been worth the trip. The opportunity to see the craftsmanship in Both Ty and JB's camera making was also worth the trip by itself. The best part though was meeting all of you. I am so sorry I had to arrive late and leave early but my kids come first and my daughter needed a car because she will be commuting to UT starting next week and with the goofy car lot laws in Texas I only had a couple of hours to do what should have taken a week. Also, the heat was really bothering me. It is 63 here this morning and I again feel normal. I would have enjoyed a whole day with all of you.

    I was amazed at the quality of joinery that Ty has been able to achieve. Next time you look at one of Mr. Guillory's cameras, take a peek at where the frame members join. There are absolutely no voids, out of square conditions, gaps, gouges, dents or anything beside square, tight fitting and accurate hairline glue joints. And I saw zero evidence of filler of any kind. This is truly world class woodworking. Being a serious woodworker, the first thing I look at is the joinery. I have seen work from many famous woodworkers including Duncan Phyfe, Sam Maloof, Roy Underhill and many others. None were superior to what I saw in Ty's joinery on Saturday. Mine certainly is not even close.

    Susan, your vision is incredible. I was moved over and over again as we looked through your photographs. Same with JB. You are both a national treasure. Thank you for bringing your albums. I am ordering the stuff to start making Pyrocatechol developers next week. The beautiful tonal range you two have attained is something I aspire to. And such blacks! I swore up and down for decades that there was no reason to ever switch from D76 and Dektol which I mix from bulk chemicals, but by the third of Susan's prints I knew that was all over.

    Thank you for allowing me to visit your group.

    Barry, thanks for the nice comments. . . now I have to live up to all of those kind words! It was a pleasure meeting you.

    Did you get a new camera Michael????

    Ty, you should have a package in your mailbox Wednesday or Thursday. Sorry for the mix up there.

    It was a good time for everybody. You can tell it is hot when a native texan/floridian turns white as a sheet and damn near goes into a heat stroke. Little scary.

    Ty, I really want to express my appreciation to you and your family for your hospitality and for me a wealth of new information. This was the first time I've been exposed to the older processes. JB even caught me taking a swig of silver nitrate. I swear he even has a picture.

    thanks again,

    bob mccarthy
