rats! if i had the same interest in photography 10 years ago that i do now, i might have asked to see the collection! (i went to OU to be an engineer - never finished and now earn my living through photography)

Would "Yikes!" be the correct response to that Darkroom magazine cover?

I cut my photographic teeth with Darkroom Photography magazine in the 1980s and have a very soft spot for it. The featured artists were always an interesting read and, as an impressionable teen, taught me about masters like Ralph Gibson and Robert Farber. The Photoshop generation probably doesn't appreciate how mindblowing the composite darkroom creations of the time were (such as by Bob Carlos Clarke). It was great fun reading the catalog listings for Adorama et al when "nature called" too!

Lands' End lost it's character after selling out to Sears. I wonder what will happen to them now that it is on the auction block again.

Kelvin,
You and me both--it was the first magazine I wrote for.

I don't even know--I've seen that image since forever, such that I can't even really "see" it any more.
