Scary Scanning

It really is sort of overwhelming.  As I start to go into my Paris archives (let’s call them that though they are scattered around), I come across tons of Medium Format shots from 1) The Bronx, 2) Coney Island 3) France and 4) The southwest… I mean, just all out of order and stacked in […]

Travel. Here or there?

Posted in The Photography

In the dream, which seemed to last all night, I was trying to get back to my old apartment in the Bronx.  Family members, some dead, some still living, kept popping in and out, and were giving me advice that made no sense.  There was even a truck at one point, like that truck laden […]
