This small area of Cass County, MI always produced some good finds when out with the view camera, "crusin' for snaps" as Fred Picker used to say of his advetures with his 4x5 in rural Vermont. I am planning on spending a couple of weeks there and in Maine and New Hampshire this summer with the boys and the popup, photographing and having an adventure of sorts. I have been to New York City, but never anywhere else on the north east coast, so I am looking forward to all the rich historical buildings the area provides, in addition to grand rural landscapes and rivers like the White, that Fred was so fond of making photographs at.
Eric and I drove to Wakefield and picked up his deer that had been processed by Mr. Fetters in only one day. We celebrated by going to Sunday Lake Market (Regionally famous for fine meats) and picked out two juicy Porterhouse steaks, went home and grilled them, adding baked potato and a tossed salad.
When Eric moves a touch north of San Francisco, I shall be able to realize a photographic dream to be able to bring the view camera, pinhole, and Holga 120 Angulon to Death Valley and Yosemite. I shall need a changing bag/tent that will allow me to reload 4x5 film holders in a motel, but small price to pay for those big fat negatives with all the detail.
