Self Portrait, in the new kitchen

I dedicated my day to helping Kate and Eldon with their kitchen renovation, we got a lot done and they should be moving into this part of the house soon. The weather cooperated in that it was pretty "clousy" warm, but not very good light to photograph in.

Self Portrait, damaged Rogue

My first night in NOLA I took Kate and Eldon to Rocky and Carlos in "Da Parish", after dinner, I backed into a power pole I didn't see, here is the morning after photo.

The day of photographing, in spite of the bumper damage, was very productive, I have nearly all my church exteriors done. The weather was perfect, and it was, in general a great day to be photographing in New Orleans.

Self portrait-more darkroom de-construction

Took down the last of the exterior walls of the old darkroom. The next step is to bring in the water proofers, then rebuild the room as a print archive.

Self Portrait, building shelves

Since I moved my "archive" out to my studio at Tyson, the portfolios are just all stacked about and decided to do something about it. A trip to Home Depot and $19.00 each solved the problem.

Self Portrait in the black and white darkroom

Rosemary asked me to make a print of one of my R.I. nephews for his birthday, I found a great back and white negative from the files and did the scan and worked the image for a while. I was generally unhappy with the scanned version of the image and said, well, why not, and when to the school house and made a real black and white silver print. The image looked great, and although I can not say the same for color, I think the qualities of a silver print, are, within the limitations of my scanner and printer, superior to anything I can do in inkjet. So far.
