four-corners

Four forks – one image. Simple as it may seem, but how to arrange the tines to interact – it’s just never the same. Negative space has always intriqued me.  But, really, where is the negative space? I say it’s in the play between where the 16 points converge. That’s where the tension lays – and that’s where the negative space tells it’s lies.

From the top – we’ve all seen. Bet you’ve never seen it from your feet .

Non descript, cheap bowl. Give it some creative lighting, and there you go. Hmm, depends upon how you look at it.

The Man Behind the Radio

transistor-radio

Internal parts from a 1960s GE Portable P975B radio my mom gave me. I fondly remember days at the beach with the radio near the picnic basket or my mom working around the house listening to music. Helen and I now listen to the morning news on this dependable, yet stylish radio.
I did a search and found out who actually created this wonderful radio. His name was or is Conrad Jutson. An interview can be found at

Cool how many lives can weave through a simple radio.

Warm and Cozy

sunrise

Sunrise North Carolina . Right…me up at the crack of dawn? Well, here’s the proof. This was from a pre-wedding season trip with some friends of mine to get our minds wrapped around creativty. I loved how the marsh grass competed with glow of the the morning sun.

1919 Typing Manual

typing-cover2

In posting images of my 1926 Underwood typewriter (see below), I realized that sitting on that typewriter in my office was a 1919 typing manual used to teach high school students at the former English High School in Providence, RI.

Thomas Jenkins (Mary Ann’s father and Helen’s Uncle) gave me that 1919 typing manual back in the 1980s.  Back then, he saw that I was interested in antique cameras and typewriters.

So there you go.

1926 Revisited

begins-at-zero1

Might as well begin at the beginning. Zero seems like a good place to start. Working Underwood 1926 typwriter; Kodak DCS 620 digital, Vivitar closeup lens, single desk lamp.

1926-communicator

If the ribbon had been spent on this 1926 Underwood, you had to rewind it using this gear. Only so many words could be typed using the same ribbon – making each word more precious than the previous. Kodak DCS 620, old Vivitar closeup lens on an old Nikkor 50 mm, desk lamp for lighting.

5-6-7-8

Homage to my 1926 Underwood. The dance on the keys can still be performed. Straight file out of Kokak dcs 620, Vivitar closeup lens, single desk lamp for light. For David and Amanda.
