I’ve been working on my next blog post for two months now–can’t seem to find the end of it–

Cottonwood in fog, January 20, 2014

But today, I spent a few hours south of town, in the wheat fields, looking for pictures.  I shot 4 negatives with the 8×10, using a sturdy Gitzo tripod I bought several years ago from Barry McWayne, who is no longer among the living, and a Phillips camera on extended loan from Gary Pfaff, who is suffering from Parkinson’s, no longer able to set up a view camera.

The blog post I can’t seem to finish is about the death of my father, at 83.  Today, driving thr0ugh the farmlands, I thought of him, and Gary, and Barry, and the gifts of light and time.  I’m grateful to still be working, looking for pictures, making more.
