The boring part of working in the darkroom is still more fun than just about anything else.

"I have been a happy man ever since January 1, 1990, when I no longer had an email address. I’d used email since about 1975, and it seems to me that 15 years of email is plenty for one lifetime."

I suspected my Speed Graphic had a light leak. No leaks here, so I’ve either been handling things carelessely or my other film holder is defective.

At least now I have a photo of my bike.

Ran into this photo of my 1979 Datsun 280ZX. I owned this car for a few years starting in 1983. I couldn’t really afford it and it gave me all sorts of mechanical grief but I think it’s one of the nicest-looking cars ever made.

Plus, the sight of me standing near it while casually smoking a Lucky Strike was something to behold.

I’d like another one just like it someday.

"If you tell me you want to “hack” your culture, what I hear is, “I don’t know how to make the people working for me simultaneously more engaged and more productive, so I’m going to attempt to manipulate them in ways based entirely on my own misunderstanding of human behaviour and hope that gives me the results I’m looking for”."

Well if I can’t watch a new episode of Game of Thrones I’ll just have to rock out to the pipes and drums of The Black Watch.

The last several negatives seem to indicate a light leak somewhere.

My daughter got married yesterday. I had planned to take hundreds of photos using several cameras. Turns out that instead I was preoccupied simply enjoying the event. I was determined to get at least one 4x5 shot, though. I didn’t want to get in the “real” photographer’s way so I snapped this one with the Speed Graphic, handheld, and sat back down. It’s a little soft, but Jess looks beautiful and I think it will make a nice print.

I only took a handful of photos at my daughter’s wedding yesterday because I was at my daughter’s wedding.

She’s a little more relaxed now that the ceremony is over
