My photography course has led me to "Control of Detail" and speaks of some interesting concepts. While studying I just starting laughing because of an illustration caption about "sprouting" in the text book: "Metal bar appears to protrude from the child's head." Couldn't they have worded it a little differently? Either way the concept of "sprout" is indeed visually unappealing.

I received 20 rolls of 100 speed film in the mail, and now I'm at a loss as to what to do with them. Mountainous landscapes are so much easier to shoot on cooler days. The days in which climbing the damned mountains are more tolerable. I think the thing to do is stop being a baby and get outside. Away from my.....air conditioner!

This is the best time of year to be in the woods, actually. It's sticky and hot, the plants are thriving, and the most interesting animals and insects have come out to do whatever the hell it is they do this time of year.

I need to practice "lines of composition", anyway. I have a digital camera plus 20 rolls of film to work on the concept. Of course that Ilford PANF 50 sounds very tempting as well as that damned Fuji 120 film that I loaded and haven't touched.
