I am one of the guest artists in the current show at Image City Photography Gallery.

2017-279 In Praise of the BrickI have been hanging around Image City Photography Gallery for close to ten years, exhibiting a couple times a year, and learning about life and photography from the other photographers who hang around here. As I say at, where I’m coming up on thirteen years, "I'm not leaving any time soon".
I bought my first personal computer in 1983; I have made my living with computers and networks for the last three decades or so. Shooting with no-batteries-included film cameras is my rebellion and sanity. I like the way fully-manual cameras slow me down and give me time to think. Developing my own black and white film lets me be more involved in the process.
When I decide to set aside my medium-format Yashica-D TLR workhorse and shoot 35mm rectangles, it's usually an Argus C3 Brick that I reach for. I got a couple from my dad when they broke up housekeeping and he gave me a bag of his old cameras ("and a couple of Bricks"). I had another given to me, and bought another

Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

Because it's past time for white-haired white men to stand up and say it.

The Heidelberg Catechism , written in 1563, remains a warm-hearted and personal statement of the Christian faith. It begins thusly...

What is your only comfort in life and in death?

That I am not my own,
but belong--
    body and soul,
    in life and in death--
    to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.
He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,
and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.
He also watches over me in such a way
that not a hair can fall from my head
without the will of my Father in heaven:
in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.

Because I belong to him,
Christ, by his Holy Spirit,
assures me of eternal life
and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready

Hey, y'all! Spine surgery on August 24 went well. The herniated disk that needed to be repaired was repaired. I was back home that evening. Recovery is going well, as long as I remember I am restricted to very light duty.

I couldn't eat the morning of surgery, but Corky still got breakfast in bed.

Me, looking happy after going for a walk the next day. Doc says to walk all I want. God is good.
Herniated disk corrective surgery this Thursday. Yay! It's been nine months.
The neighbors call it 'the pretty house'.

Thanks for the fave.

By the way, how is your back behaving?
pearwood Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Pretty well. Got some soreness left from all the muscle stretching they had to do so the surgeon could get to the spine, but the surgery appears to have done pretty much what it needed to do.
keight Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2017
That is excellent news.
