Under Construction
San Francisco Carnaval parade

January 8th, 2004

Not Yet
Wednesday, another eight hundred mile an hour day, but a good day I guess.

Thursday, a nine hundred mile an hour day, dear god; a less good day than yesterday, but Friday on the horizon. Thank god for Friday (on the horizon). A litany, I know, but sometimes that's what you've got: a smile, a litany, a whiskey and water.

A package arrived from B&H in New York, a remote control for the studio lights and beakers of various sizes for mixing developer, stop bath and fixer. Necessary items thought I when I ordered them. Now will I use them? A sad commentary on your life when some idle issue like this makes it into your journal, sitting here, feet up, the NPR News Hour finishing on the tube, a silent series of the names and the pictures of soldiers killed in Iraq blinking on the screen.

Friday. A good day, but a blur, a day lived as if I were twenty years old and running. My, my how the hours fly.

Have you developed your film?

No, not yet.

The photograph was taken at the San Francisco Carnaval parade with a Nikon F5 and a 135mm f 2.0 Nikon (Nikkor) lens on Kodak Ektachrome E100S.
