Wonderful pictures. I love photos very much especially nature. I'm interested in pictures and I want to go to special school. We can present our soul with pictures.

Waaaay back in '43 I would be allowed to feed the horses of the bread wagon, the milk wagon or the ice cream man's an apple. They were huge things for a little tad.
Thanks for the memory.

Well of course you didnt you were not even born then BUT if your dad was working in 1943 you must be getting on yourself not that I should talk you are only a bit older than I.

Guess you are looking forward to going south so are we but Beth's recovery from the knee op is going slowly.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program on photography sorry I dont have a great photo to share.

Adrian

In '49 my parents bought a new home. In the spring the road was just a mud bog and the milk wagon got stuck up to its axles. The poor old horse couldn't pull it out so the milkman unhitched it and road back to the dairy. He came back with a pair of huge Belgians and just sucked that rig right out of the mud. What a great day for a 9 year old.

That vintage photo reminded me of this one of my mother, when she was a teenager. I added some color tones to the B&W photo.

Several years ago one of my sons brought some boxes of slides I'd taken while stationed on Okinawa in the mid 50's. These had been stored in the hot attic of an old house and forgotten. To my surprise several seemed to be unaffected with the heat and humidity they'd gone through all those years.

Of all those pictures this of 2 Okinawan fishermen and their boat and the old man on his way home from a days work are by far now my favorite. Let's face it, at the time I took the pictures I was punk a.. teenager who didn't know what he was doing.

I took photography for three years in college in the late '70s. This was in the develop your film and prints in a darkroom days. I spent an absolute fortune (for me at the time) on a Nikon F2AS camera and three lenses. I still have them plus an additional 15 mm wide angle lens from ebay. Once you get Nikon fever there is no known cure. I am the only one who ever had his hands on the camera, It now resides, seldom used, in a Pelican case and it pretty much looks new.

Going through my closet recently I found my old film development canister. That is a cylinder shaped object that comes apart and has an internal holder that allows you to 'spiral' a roll of 35mm film onto it (while in a darkroom) then fill it with development chemicals at the appropriate temperatures, for the appropriate times, and develop your film. I remember that tri-x black and white film is easy to develop. (colour is another story and slides are impossible). I believe I will get some tri-x and break out the old Nikon.

One advantage of black and white prints is they are permanent. Once they are properly 'fixed' by the development process they do not fade or change tone or colour. They remain photographs until the paper they are printed on is physically destroyed. Black and white photo print paper that is developed with chemicals does not deteriorate or yellow with time. Images fixed on/in it could last 1,000 years if protected. Not so with colour prints, slides or photos printed on computer print paper.

I feel your pain on closeted cameras. I have a Nikon F3HP & a Hasselblad 600 (with 2 backs & 3 lenses) in storage. I keep getting urges to dig them out, but currently shoot with a Nikon D800 & don't really want to go back.

As to slides, while it is impossible to process Kodachrome yourself, Ektachrome is/was doable. I processed many rolls of Ektachrome 160T & 320T using the E6 processing kit. Many steps, but we had to get theatre rehearsal images out by the next morning, so overnight processing was necessary.

How long an image from a printer lasts depends on the technology. I have 16" X 20" images printed with an HP dye based printer that faded under fluorescent lighting in under 6 months, but others using Epson's pigment based ink that are over 15 years old (in sunlight) that show no fading. I agree that silver based black & white is one of the least fade damaged technology, but pigment based color prints on archival paper can last quite awhile. Another advantage is as long as you keep the digital files updated so they are readable with the current technology, you can always produce a new print with the current technology (the same as with film, at least black & white).
