These are the sorts of photos I've been making lately, as I stroll through the sleepy sidewalks of suburbia with the little GR3 on a thin wrist strap. This isn't art, just observations shared via the medium of photography.

Dear Joe, thank you very much for you text. I relate very much with your feelings about photography.
As you always say in your videos, stay creative... whatever technique you use.
Greetings from inland Spain, the land of clean skies and dark shadows. And thank you for your inspiring YouTube videos.

I'm struck by the image of the room full of smells and disuse. When I had an enlarger back in the 80's, I recall having a lot of fun printing onto distorted paper and cutting up photos to make new collages. You have negatives begging to be brought out of the mirror universe, there is much fun and creativity to be had in the red light. (:

The special aroma that only emanates from a real dark room. All that gets lost in digital.
Nice walk around ABQ. Before old cities got to crime ridden I like to walk all the run down and other not often visited parts of the city with camera in hand. Lots of fun and never any problems.

I've always been a landscape photographer. However, I haven't done much in the way of photography lately (in the last 5 years (at least - egad!). For various reasons which I think I have written you about via typewriter.
