What do photographers do when they are not shooting

Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, May 22nd, 2008


When we moved from the farm to Montreal in the 1980′s, we really enjoyed the return to urban life  but still had a longing for trees, water, and the quiet of the country. Did I mention fishing?

We found a wonderful chalet that was was minimalist in upkeep, but spacious & comfortable. [Also would make a great studio...big windows in the roof. ]

We now seem to be too busy to really enjoy it, so it is up for sale. For a first look, go to:
The Zimbel Chalet
An then call Elaine for further details. (514 849 5565)

Found & lost; found again…

Trying to reorganise my filing system, I found a negative of a woman with file cards…the pre-computer way to find books in a library. I scanned it and put it in a “special place” until I had time to print . Of course I couldn’t find it when I was ready to print. “Special places” are great for hiding stuff. I don’t give up and I don’t really loose negatives, so last week when it surfaced I headed for the darkroom and made a small edition (6) of 11/14″ prints. You can order one from me or any of my good dealers .  I won’t reprint it. I am satisfied that it is now exists .
