Sunday, walking around the Springfield Cemetary. It's becoming one of my favorite local places to visit. I've been thinking about creating a picture and story book about this cemetary. It's a facinating place.




" Think you of the fact that a deaf person cannot hear. Then, what deafness may we not all posses?

What senses do we lack that we cannot see and hear another world around us.

A blind person never shown his blindness would never realize his loss.

What is all around us we cannot..............................?"


"Guardians of the Souls "




"The Prophet"













I look at you all
See the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you
I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you
I look at you all see the love there that's
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all...
Still my guitar gently weeps.

I had to be in Amherst Monday night to pick up cards at the Copy Shop with a friend and there was band playing in the common. Of course I had my camera with me. The band was pretty good so he and I hung around a while listening to the music. She sang very well on top of playing a mean bass guitar. (not to mention some pretty good moves).

I was out of town for last three days on a business trip in Maine (uneventful). Got up early this morning and went through my picture files. I noticed this picture I took in my trip last month through the eastern Sierras. Taken a few miles from Mono Lake in California facing the Sierras. The eastern entrance to Yosemite is in the mountains you're seeing in the picture. I stopped on a road going to a ghost town but the road was closed due to heavy snow.

"Snow Trees"


A wet and dreary Sunday morning greeted New Englanders today, a Nor 'easter the weatherman called it. Expected to receive 2-4 inches of rain. I decided to go to Northampton in the morning and it was snowing like it was a blizzard. It was pretty cool and I hung around to take pics of people walking around with their raincoats and umbrellas. I think I may have taken a few keepers. I'll know when I get the film developed.

When I got back home I spent 4 to 5 hours in the darkroom developing and printing some negatives I took earlier this year down at the Cape.

Here's few below. I'm pretty happy with these pictures.



"Dune Walk"






"Dune Path"




"J Alan"

Self image w/timer. I thought someone on the path would be a more interesting image.



"Dune & Clouds


Above four images taken with a film camera. I think the grain adds character to the prints.

I still prefer shooting with film even though it is a LOT more work than digital.
