A Long Dry Spell
Post-Script: Among possible new videos will be one that provides an overview of several handmade wooden tripods I've built over the years, that don't require a high degree of woodworking or mechanical skill to assemble, yet provide the basic functionality required for box cameras used in scenic landscape photography.
And in case you haven't yet done so, please visit my pinhole photography blog, where I've posted a few more articles.
I wanted to also mention that I received a letter in the mail from my Aunt, who lives in Colorado Springs and owns an old full-sized standard typewriter - I think it's an Underwood, but I'm not certain - and whom I convinced to type me a letter; she hadn't used it in maybe five years. I was amazed how good the type slug alignment is on that old machine, despite it needing a new ribbon. I might just mail her a new ribbon for Christmas, so don't tell her! Or, if she can't manage to install the ribbon herself, I'll make a trip up there, install the ribbon and maybe do a bit of cleaning and oiling, and do a typecast; probably not until after the weather improves, however, which means late winter or spring of next year.
