The Very Sexy Clemise

This is Elroy's old lady, Clemise, as she wandered her tequila soaked pathway of sexy self-destruction.

Jarvis & Elroy

From a party last weekend. Friends of mine looking very classy. Elroy drove us home which probably says something about how I was doing also.

I am running some film later today but felt like I should post up something... this is from a shoot with Bruce Hornsby a couple of years back.

Here is a portrait of a dog I met a few months ago. Seeing him, the first thought is 'damn.' But he is beautiful. Blind as well. I spent a few hours with him last week and he quietly raised hell in my studio. Dalmations are high strung and energetic generally but take away their eyesight and this guy was nose to the floor checking out everything. Bump and back up and go another direction. Not a great subject for lights and stands and a controlled shoot. But he is handsome. I have a couple more rolls to process but I hope to hang out with him again.

If You Can Read This

From a Motorcycle rally last weekend. Not too many people and the pictures are few as well... but this one is amusing somewhat.

When Hail Freezes Over

    taken with Diana Camera

Here is a just processed image but a few months old. From one of those rolls that was shot some time ago and I wasn't really quite sure what was on it any longer. For a landscape, I kind of like this one.

Willie Wisely circa 1999. Excellent jangly pop musician who I believe is out there plying his trade in Los Angeles these days.

Also, thanks for the scanner recommendations. I may contact some of you offline to discuss the Epson 4870 especially. I did have the Minolta D'Image Scan Multi II which was excellent but it is becoming archaeic. Trying to figure if repair is an option.

Beginning to shop for new scanners. Any ideas for a solid Medium format scanner out there? It is funny but I realize just how much time I am not in the darkroom since I started scanning negatives a couple of years ago. This might be good for me really but I would like to get something here pretty soon. Any advice is appreciated.

Good Action

    taken with Diana Camera

Feeling better the last couple of days, getting some things done. Life is good, so the archive image du jour is all speed and Spring and skinned knees. Maybe to make a few photos today then. Tomorrow, though, I am heading to a Psychic festival and Bikini Motorcycle wash. So I've got that going for me.

Scannerless, Day 6 - Digging deep with this one. From back in the days before I'd begun using toys seriously. From when I lived in San Francisco. Somewhere in North Beach.

I have a head cold / flu thing going. So, this be my avatar for poor health. Remember to drink plenty of fluids.

House On the Rock

    taken with Holga Camera

No scanner for a while I am thinking, so we are still on our misty eyed tour through the dusty caverns of yesteryear. House on the Rock is in Wisconsin. somehere within a couple of hours of Madison I think. It has been a while. Anyway, it is a great place to check out. Basically it is a shambling museum of sorts with all manner of carzy collected stuff. Apparently an eccentric wealthy guy had a world traveling, kitsch buying penchant and since he has passed I believe that his people are continuing the tradition. You have pneumatic orchestras, every different Burma Shave roadside advertisement, dollhouses, miniatures of every description, the world's largest carousel - I think it is the largest but it is definitely the kinkiest. They have museum class artifacts from various cultures alongside scantily clad flying women mannequins. The guy had a thing for breasts. It is worth the trip if you are ever in the area.
