When I was a kid, my friend Raymond Grafton Charles Cote Jr. had a room in his house where he set up his electric trains. Every year at Christmas his collection grew. Trains !!! ..and a room to set them up. I was jealous. Now it’s my turn to give trains. In the upcoming weeks, I will post Norfolk & Western Railroad 1961 in my collections section. Stay tuned, and happy holidays.

I have a friend who has been collecting

my photographs for a long time.

Each time we meet

he puts his arm around my shoulder and says

“How are you feeling? ” with a certain look in his eyes.

And I, with a certain look in my eyes, reply

“Archival”

We both smile.

In August of 1994

I went to a wedding

and didn’t bring a camera,

not even a point & shoot.

It gave me a chance

to hug & kiss

talk and dance

and generally have a good time.

It was as if I gave myself

permission to really be there.

Last week I made three prints of “Cote D’Azur 1953″ on 16/20 Agfa sg paper . Is it new? Is it old? What’s the difference? I have made it the way I want it. I have one for myself and two collectors will own a copy…..or not. That’s business…the art is done.
