Tuesday evening I had dinner at Ben Huff’s place–Adam was there too–mostly the point of the evening was to talk about the Homer photofest, which I skipped this year…  I almost made it–my wife and son and I skipped town because of the smoke–we headed towards Homer, but somehow I never made it there, got hung up at Bird Point on Turnagain Arm, Whittier, the Kenai Refuge, and the Cook Inlet beach at Nikiski…

As might be apparent from these images, I’ve got a soft spot for the landscape of Alaska.  But most of this work I’ve done in the landscape over the past 20 years is with an 8×10 view camera, a slow laborious way of making pictures.  I’ve not posted a single 8×10 black and white landscape to this web site–somehow blogging seems more suited to taking pixels than grains, and that the web moves too fast, the black and white images demand a stillness to view…
