5-26-01 I bought a Leica yesterday. The M6 with .85 magnification. I traded in my view camera which I hadn't used in over a year and a half, so it didn't cost me anything. I had been shooting with a friend's Lecia for a while, hoping...

3-02-01 I've really given up on the digital black and white printing. I guess I experimented with it for about six months. The results weren't bad, but not the same tonal range as the darkroom stuff I'm doing. Also, the equipment, seems more finicky. The printer...

6-2-2000 Not much new. Although I'm getting about 5 new registrations per day, nobody seems willing to buy a screensaver, which I thought at least a couple of people would like. C'est la vie. Either I don't know how to sell them, or the price is...

1-6-2000 I took the plunge and added a popup banner each time the user clicks to see a picture. This is obviously annoying, but using LinkExchange, its the only way to generate enough hits so that I get my banner exposed on other sites. Currently this...
