EASTO LIVES


Waterbury, Connecticut

The April print sale continues, linked from the top of the sidebar at the right. Also, after a brief intermission, the Building Portraits series continues over at WPII, also linked at the right.

A brief search of the intertubes didn't produce any references for "easto lives." The posters are on the wall of a small corner Bodega in a hispanic part of the city.

Another Dramatic Sky

Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin

More scanning, this one from a 2011 8x10-inch negative. I'd been thinking of using a 7x17 panoramic shot I made of this theater, but then realized that with the theater name "Big Sky," I really should go with this wide-angle 8x10 shot that includes much more of that big Wisconsin sky than the skinny pan shot.

The Warwick

Warwick, New York

Working on the design of the drive-in theater book yesterday, I found that the scan of this 7x17 inch negative was made on my Microtek 9800, back in 2009, when the scanner was failing. Long stripes across the sky when you look closely. So one of my tasks this morning has been to locate the negative, made in 2002, to scan it in two sections on my Epson V750. After merging the two scans in Photoshop I've got a nice rendition of the dramatic light and clouds on the late winter morning I shot it. More good news, a quick search online tells me the Warwick is up and running for the season, having managed to make the expensive conversion to digital projection.

As always, click on the image and you'll get a larger, clearer view of the picture. Don't forget there's still the April print offer going on, details at the top of the right-hand sidebar.

A Walk in the Park, II

Shelton, Connecticut






A Walk in a Park in the Rain


Shelton, Connecticut

I've visited this town quite a few times, and never knew of this park. It's mostly playing fields, and some walking paths on the shoulder overlooking the river. It's been a park for a very long time, if you accept the sign.
