RompHims. Fuck you. Whoever it was awoke this stygian nightmare from the lower planes of men's fashion is an evil bastard who deserves to be cast back into the pit of despair from which the awakened romper issued forth to blight the world. Fuck him, a pox upon his family, fuck everyone who looks like him. 

We discovered the men's romper in the 1970s. We learned. By the elder deities from beyond Sears and Roebuck, we learned man should not meddle with fashions beyond his control and below his dignity. We learned when the gibbering bolts of double knit polyester came spewing forth in madness from lost D'upon't where Ry'on lies not dead but shimmering. 

We learned through our own hubris. We thought we could control it, but we should have known. we should have known. I look back in these final moments before the velour destroys the feeble remnants of my mind, and realize, there was no way we could have known then. 

Why wouldn't they listen to what we had learned, those benighted fashion design majors at Miskatonic U.

Now the madness has arisen anew. And I was compelled by a force from beyond good taste itself to chant ABRCRMB'EE SHUBB'E DOOBBE' CTHULHU ROM'PHIM R'LYEH FAGTAGAN! And I saw before me the twisted form of that which should not exist in menswear departments, and i felt my sanity slip it's bounds for the mountains of madness.

tales from the yard
I am an urban explorer at heart. Yeah, I can do the photojournalism well. Yeah I can do portraits. Yeah, you name it, I can figure it out. My favorite shooting though, is somewhere touched by man, then abandoned to decay and eventually be reclaimed by nature. I like things so massive I can't manipulate the composition. Whether it is crumbling architecture or decay landscapes I love seeing this phase of the cycle. 

I guess you could call this rural exploring. I found an abandoned junkyard along a Texas county road. I had my Calumet CC-400, and four sheets of Bergger Pancro 400 with me, a tripod,  and sunny 16. Yes. I pulled over. This is one of the four shots I took. 

Calumet CC-400, Schneider-Kreuznach Symmar S 180mm f/5.6, Bergger Pancro 400 film

1/60th sec, @ISO320, f/45, 15mm front rise

It has been a while since I was regular on Deviantart. In the interim I've gotten married and my kids are approaching their teenage years if not in them already. I've begun a PhD program in Journalism Ethics and Law. I sold all my digital photography gear.

WHAT? 

Yes. I sold it all. Canon DSLR bodies. Gone. Canon L glass. Gone. Memory cards. Gone.

Digital photography had become unfulfilling. When you can take 200 pictures in less than a minute, it cheapens the experience of capturing the image. I had lost a personal connection to my art. It had become too easy to capture the perfect image, or make a less than perfect image look perfect. It had become rather soulless and mindless. 

I really needed a change. I toyed with picking the canvas and brushes up, but I lost the desire to paint years ago. I picked up the pens and pencils, but really, there was no satisfaction there either. 

In a fit of "oh what the hell" I plunked down 150 dollars on a moderately complete Crown Graphic, a box of 25 sheets of Ilford HP5+, a liter of HC110, a daylight tank, some fixer, and some stop bath. A quick trip to the camera store provided me a shutter release cable and a a darkbag. I was on my way. 

The joy of photography came back the first time I held a negative to the light. looking down at the four inch by five inch image on the light table was, for lack of a better word, numinous. Knowing the image before me was truly mine from beginning to end, with no reliance on lightroom or photoshop or any corrections, was what brought the connection to my art back. 

Now I have the Crown, a Toyo 45D, and a Calumet CC-400. I have a Graflex 22 TLR. I'm buying a Leica M3, and a Mamiya C330 is on the acquisition list as well.

I'm getting older. For years I have avoided using a loupe, because that would mean I am getting old. F/64 and bring a lunch, am I right? Well, I finally broke down and bought myself a loupe so the wider apertures would once again be available to me for portrait shooting. Here we have a random, quick shot of my kid. Crown Graphic, Schneider-Kreuznach Xennar 135mm f/4.7, Bergger Pancro 400 film @ 400, 1/25 @ f/5.6 stand developed in 1:119 HC110.
