Austin Autumn. Earlier times.

I called Lou up on a cool autumn day and asked her to go with me to Laguna Gloria Museum to make a little art, apropos of nothing. She wore an old courderoy coat and smiled beautifully as she looked down at her feet.
Hasselblad 500 CM, 180mm f4 lens. Agfa film.

Great to see you posting again. I've always found your portraits inspire and challenge me to do new things. Thank you.

The portrait reminded me of the the work of David Williams (http://www.davidwilliamsphotographer.com/show.php?caseA=1)
Pictures from 'Pictures From No Man's Land'. Quite an old work now but a wonderful study.

This photograph embodies everything I love about 6x6 medium format.

I thought TOP had a good piece and lots of great comments about your decision to stop blogging, and their request for you to be a regular contributor. I thought that at least occasional posts from you would be better than no posts. Glad i decided to check on VSL today out of habit.Welcome back, Kirk, and I do look forward to more of the why than the how of your photographic experience.

Great photo to start of the fall......

I really like prints showing the edges of the negative, at least that looks like what you show here.

Re; film and paper notations, well I've never been more than a hack printer so paper has often been a box of whatever found at a garage sale. Film? Whatever 100ft. bulk Freestyle had in a short dated special at the time.

Glad to see your freaky hot weather has moderated.

Thank God for Twitter - I would have never checked back to the VSL site. And look what I would have missed.....

Welcome back!

Gotta love the background blur those big cameras produce. Great portrait.
