Medina, New York

Medina Shop Windows, 5/23/07

I was walking around Medina, NY, taking pictures, when an SUV with police markings pulled to the curb. One of the two officers inside asked me to approach the vehicle. He said they'd had a report that I was taking pictures. I said yes, that's what I'm doing. Taking pictures.

He asked if I had any ID. I showed him one. He asked, why are you taking pictures? I said it's what I do. I'm a photographer. Both cops burst out laughing.

People are a little crazy, the talkative cop offered. I said, you should see what happens when I get out the camera that's two feet wide. They waved and drove off to find other evildoers.

I went on taking pictures.

Newcomb Landing, Evening

In the past week I've gotten my "real" darkroom out of winter mothballs and hit a stone wall of plumbing problems only some of which I could handle by myself, so getting it back on line will have been pretty expensive. That's on top of the cramps I got from soldering fittings at floor level, under the sink, where I don't fit, on all the plumbing problems I could handle myself. But once done I was able to start in on my backlog of large format negatives from the past months. There aren't many (more on that later and in another venue) but some are quite nice.

I shot this view about ten years ago while teaching a workshop on Cape Cod, and loved the overall look of the 12x20 negative but there were some technical problems. I was delighted to recognize the same place with much better evening conditions while on the Cape a few weeks ago, and found that the 7x17 inch camera actually framed the view at least as well, with a wonderful late evening sky.

Stop Sign

The wall surrounds the footings for a railroad bridge. Why it was ever given a stucco treatment is a mystery.
