OK, so your whole plate photographer buddies were "everyone" until Don Bryant took a notion to invite anyone, and someone who was "no one" stumbled in on her 2 flat feet, proving, as you probably know, that everything you think you know is something or someone else.I stand here chastened. I just thought everyone knew. ... You know, that line never worked when I was a teenager, either.
(You may however be wasting your talents on whole plate, since you do innocence so well. Have you ever thought of serious crime?)
Meanwhile, you mentioned the 2D, which leads me to mention that I bought a Kodak 2 D, probably 20 years ago, I forget for how much, at a photographica fair (remember when we still had them?). I'd planned to use it to make 8x10 negatives directly instead of by enlargement, but never got around to it. So it sits in my living room as a still life, drawing much attention from whoever sees it. I drew it for the cover of Post-Factory #1, & the lens came out looking like Prince Philip, so I added the "Diana" camera dancing in the sky with butterfly wings.
O going to express my amazement and nothing to do with humidity, material, or paper. How is it possible to write a "blog" with the first person pronoun used amply throughout, yet nowhere in maybe several thousand words IDENTIFY yourself, which is to say, reveal your name, or at least: "photo resident of Kingwood Texas."
