The whole thing? I don't know.
Just wanted to say I saw your photo show yesterday at B— and really enjoyed it. Nice selection. Great series. Good to see in print form.
Hope all is well.
Thank you for coming to see my show. It was good for me to see the work completed and on the wall. As you know it has been hovering over me for some time now.
Life is for the most part good, though M— let me go after 27 years of teaching there last June due to low enrollment across the university and me being a salaried/benefited person, I was on the chopping block. I will go back there in January as an adjunct to teach a couple classes. So life is different and looking for other teaching.
But, of course, pictures, always pictures!!!
I hope life is treating you well,
Sorry to hear about M—. I really enjoyed those history of photography courses there with you long ago. Sounds like you got a raw deal.
Photos are happening in spurts. Yesterday was my first non-rainy free afternoon in a while, and I walked up and down some good alleys near campus. Great shadows and leaf forms and mid-Autumn detritus to photograph, but mostly it was just nice being outside in the sun for a little bit. Maybe that's the whole thing. I don't know.
I have always believed being a photographer is a good excuse for taking a walk. I think you have it just right. The world is an amazing place and if you are a visual person, which I wholly believe you are from all the wonder full evidence I've seen, then those walks are heightened by the discoveries you make and attempt to illuminate in a picture.
Take Care and Keep Walking,
Paraphrasing Mark Twain: "Photography is nothing but a good walk spoiled."
One more non-photographer's opinion. What appears from the outside is not what one understands from the inside.
