In 2016 I sold off all my digital equipment save for a very nice Panasonic Digital P/S. I now have mostly film cameras. I also have stockpiled lots of film. The truth is that film is making a resurgence. Ferrania Film is making new film. Bergger the French company has just released a new film. There is also CineStill film which is repurposed movie film for 35 mm film cameras. This truly is the year of film. I’m doing my part. Nikon F100 and left over Fuji Provia 400 slide film

B17 at the Garden City, KS Airport one hot summer day
Images form 2001 when I was still living in Syracuse, NY.
Give this a look - Bill Frisell is an awesome composer, guitarist. This is his rendition of oldie music like “Pipeline” - not to be missed.
Denver Art Museum for the Magnificence of Venice show - Pictures of the exhibit goers can sometimes be better. This couple seems to have gotten out of their 1920’s time machine
More Saturday Morning listening.

Just got my copy of my latests Blurb book. It is a compilation of my Car and Track photos for the last several years. Came out well - the price for the hard bound is a bit much but there is a PDF version for ~ $10.
Then the reality
He takes direction very well!
With a foot of snow on the ground it’s fun to remember those hot days were all you needed was a cold margarita
Too Many Zooz
A interesting group of musicians - here just the two but sometimes more. Playing in the NYC subway. Foot work is as good as the beat
That’s right - what will I do on my Sundays where I used to get up at 0530 to go to a pub to watch it live? Here is an older video announcing the new Circuit of the Americas track in Austin, TX
OT post : Just listened to this album by Cream on vinyl. Still an amazing album after all these years. Three guys who put out the most amazing wall of sound. Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Jack Bruce
One of the photos that ‘may’ end up in my new book Auto-Graphy. I’m just putting it together now. The idea started off as a car culture book. It may mutate into just a track book. Will have to see.
This often talked about syndrome is real and I’ve been inflicted with it same as many of you. I’m currently coming clean after shipping three big boxes to KEH for their hopeful purchase. I still have several film cameras and one digital camera ( not including my Samsung phone). I don’t feel the least deprived. It feels good to clear out the shelves. I will be working diligently to not relapse. If I can do it so can you.
