More socks

I'm back at knitting socks. I make them on two circular needles as taught by Judy Wilcox at the Yarn Garden. This current pair is for a friend.

See my first pair here.

Bend weekend

Back in mid-September my friend Jennnie and I went for a camping/biking/hiking weekend near Bend, Oregon. We were surprised by an early winter storm camping at Devil's Lake near Mt. Bachelor. After a cold first night we sought out warmer temperatures for a tandem ride. On Sunday we had a great day hike at Smith Rock State Park.

See the photos...

Darkroom class

I had another darkroom class last night and I'm becoming more sure that I will eventually have my own darkroom. We've explored several techniques in our classes: controlling contrast, burning and dodging, various camera techniques. I like the structure of the class since we spend most of the time with hands on practice. Since most of us don't have regular access to a darkroom this is a great use of the time.

I've posted a gallery of some images scanned from prints I've made in the first few classes. I have only developed two rolls and have spent more time on printing than shooting film recently.
