*g* - I just read your comment on Carl's blog, went to your blogger profile, read "weddings, landscape ...", went to the blog, expecting photos of landscapes and stuff ... and saw this! I like that very much! Made me smile. And now I will dig a little bit deeper in the blog ...

Hi Martina,

Thank you for your kind remarks. I decided to return the compliment and visited both of your blogs. I loved them both. The idea of having to quote from a book that you are currently reading imposes a very nice discipline on both your reading and your photography.

The second blog is also a great idea. I have numerous category-less files laying around that I may put to the same use.

James, after I posted the comment I thought "ooh, I do hope he did understand my "landscapes and stuff" in the right way - it wasn't meant to be deprecative. I just expected something different, ;-).

Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging comments!

The scrap press was one of my better ideas, ;-), it is so relaxing to just post "something, anything, stuff" - without any pressure of posting daily, of posting something witty or ingenious ... and yes, there are so many blogs ...

Martina, Thanks. I really just didn't know how to describe what my photography is, but, being a mouthy sort, felt I had to say something. I really just put up pictures from my daily life.

You have encouraged me to do more black and white, which I always loved first. I still have a complete darkroom that hasn't been used in years.......sigh. But I am getting closer with QTR and good paper on an Epson 3800.

Nice to find yet another Alice Munro reader. She's a lovely writer. I just finished a short story of hers in The New Yorker, up to her usual standards.

Jim, ah, yes - printing ... that's something I am going to do when I am retired I suppose ;-). It's of course a shame to only show digital photos on small computer screens - but: I haven't a clue about printing and no time right now to learn anything about it. So: retirement! ;-)

When you do start, you will love it. At the rate that printers and inks and papers are improving, you will have a joyous retirement.

Jim, I just read Ctein's column on TOP "Introduction to Digital Printing" - I didn't even know there exist printers with different levels of black ... ;-)
