My friend Steve said he would invent a project just to use the Fujinon 90/2. After carrying the beast for three hours to shoot the Johnson Brothers Band, I was well pleased with the results, but equally glad to set it down.

Back on May 15 I began a new project titled Small Town Street, a pamphlet to be available in PDF format. [with one hard copy] The notion is to provide encouragement, tips, and techniques for making Street images with the limited palette of a small town.
For the first time in "months" there were some blinds open allowing a "look through" the vacant interior of this corner building. The camera was preset and Zone focused to the bright spot along the side wall, and I took a lookout position on the corner waiting for someone interesting to come down the side street with the intent of sprinting back to my set point to capture the subject as they walked through the bright spot. [which never happened] Noticing this guy meandering down the main street, I took up my position and waited for the odd chance he might turn up the side street…he obliged.

Made a first appearance at Lexington Night Market 6:00-10:00 PM first Friday of the month on Bryan Ave between Limestone and Loudon. Definitely got the vibe, but will have to learn to work the near blinding light or arrive later.

Numbers keep popping up in book projects. A monograph requires 50 images, 18 images is the attention span for a pocket size book, and 8-12 prints comprise a folio. Why not an uneven number like 9, 17, or 53…or is it just me?
