Spam and Zombies

I’m certain that someone must be doing a collage of S*P*A*M.  It is just so freakin’ funny.  If you don’t run a website or two, and your email knocks your S*P*A*M away… oh, why am I using the asterisks?  Yeah, I’m afraid I’ll just attract more of the nonsense.  But as I was saying, it […]

Sold Pano Again

Sold Pano Again

I have never had a plan.  You can see that.  I got into photography because I enjoyed it, and wasn’t bored.  I went to infrared for years, for the same reason.  And a whole bunch of other things.  Giga Pano seemed interesting and I found myself with the AutoGiga system, which consists of hardware for […]

DETECTNOVEL.COM I know, I know.  You say – what the heck’s Dave been up to lately?  No new pictures.  Not even lame blog posts.  So what I’ve been up to is something completely different.  And it goes something like this.  You might remember that I used to be a screenwriter.  Me and Andy wrote a […]

Fans and Nostalgia

I was puzzled to find myself watching Mets games again.  Forcing myself to become a Mets fan no matter how annoying they were.  I wondered for months why I would make such an attempt.  The players were different than the players when I was last a fan.  The management was different.  The announcers were different. […]

Scanning Medium Format Day

Scanning Medium Format Day

These are some very big juicy scans.  I’m scanning Pentax 67 negatives now.  Grayscale / 16-bit @ 4800 ppi.  Look at the size of these monsters.  One thing I can say for sure is that they are from the Pentax 67 because that was the only 67 film camera I used.  I did have the […]

Time Was When Negatives Ruled

Time Was When Negatives Ruled

My world works in a circuitous way.  There never is a direct path from A to B.  So I sold a few prints about a week ago and got an inquiry about whether I had any World Trade Center shots from when they were standing. I promptly forgot about the request.  This morning I woke […]

Caregivers

Caregivers

Where I live (New York) the people that look after the white kids are usually dark-skinned. And the people who take care of us when we are too feeble to take care of ourselves are also dark-skinned. I suspect it is this way all over the United States.
