Yes. A very spiritual experience. There's some film and silver prints in the archive somewhere. As I'm moving in the next couple months; and never really unpacked from the studio move a couple years ago; i don't know if I'll ever get back into those old files. My scanners are out dated and barely functional, SCSI and all. Long ago I determined that film is best printed by contact or fine enlargers. If I'm going to print digitally - may as well photograph to a Digital Sensor. I may change my mind if I ever settle into a work space that will allow me to work with the film. My 3 light tables are all dust covered in a Quonset Building. Can't decide if I'll try and sell them; or scrap them with the enlargers. Saying goodbye to a work-flow, the darkroom, the enlargers, the brown glass, beakers, 30x40 stainless steel trays, stainless steel drying cabinet, 3 stainless sinks. A couple years ago I took a chain saw to the fiberglass sinks? a life, The building that I designed, drew and built? will be leveled and become a parking lot? It's all crazy, sad and depressing? End of era at the end of November? the move starts a week from Monday when we close on the "new" place. Though BEING THERE AT THE DUNES - with or without a camera - maybe even more spiritual without the camera - remains one of the more awe inspiring places I've been - lost in lines, forms, patterns and rhythms - looking back at only my own foot prints reaching back - seemingly forever into the distance - some of the memories a note off the iPad, George On Aug 9, 2014, at 10:38 AM, Howard Ritter <hlritter at bex.net> wrote: > You?re welcome, George.
