This is my second post! And it’s time to introduce you, reader, to one of my passions; Photography. But not just point-and-click photography….Five years ago I bought a 4×5 Field Camera and I’ve been using it exclusively since then. There’s no LCD, no flash, no autofocus, no nothing. It’s purely a box with a lens. Using the camera is a slow, hands-on process, literally. I shoot individual sheets of black & white film (no rolls of film) which I develop by hand in my kitchen sink.
Future archive sleuth stories will often feature photos made with this camera, as well as posts that highlight photos for their own sake. So here’s a sampling from some work I did last summer.
