And now for something a bit different. My Moriyama period.


Can't quite put my finger on it but for some reason today I thought I might be happier to walk around and make black and white photos with my little Fuji camera instead of my usual color snaps. I ended up walking down to the Barton Creek Pool spillway to see how many people would be playing in the water a week after the deep freeze. As I expected, it was full of people and dogs. 

Daido Moriyama is a Japanese photographer whose work I really like. I used my Tri-X custom recipe and even added some contrast to it today. Not that the bright sun wasn't supplying enough contrast. It's fun to step outside the box from time to time even if the box is your own construct.

This short post was typed using the traditional touch type method. It was faster to type than saying each word out loud. I used my stock, iMac Pro keyboard and a stock Apple iMac Pro mouse. They worked fine.

Do I detect a bit of snark directed towards MCJ?

Me? Snark? I'm just jealous that MJ can get a couple hundred comments about his daunting search for after market keyboards, and his inability to type. I wish I had such devoted fans...

Dogs having fun, what's not to like.

If its any consolation, I haven't visited MJ's blog since last Summer. Plus, you're shooting Fuji again, how can I not tune in?

Without being (too) snarky, over the past few months I've been thinking that your blog is everything that Mike's blog wishes it could be. Even your off-topic stuff is more interesting (swimming pool > playing pool; talking about family dinner > lecturing about fad diets). I've been reading his blog about as long as I've been reading yours - about a dozen years each - but with his, it is more and more just out of habit nowadays. He can still hit it out of the ballpark occasionally, but the click-bait stuff about "what's your favorite [this or that]" just leaves me cold.
