I seem to always be fascinated to read this kind of description of how, both technically and otherwise, a picture came to happen. Thanks for sharing ths with us!

Thanks for the descriptions Carl...I really enjoy seeing a bit of the process like this. Wish I could have bought all three, but one will have to do. Interesting that the drive-in is now operating - since the picture looks like a long defunct place, never to be used that way again.

Pyro developed?

Carl, have you thought about a book on your theatres project? From what I've seen at your website and elsewhere, it appears to be a great body of work suitable for book/portfolio.

"The Pike Theater was mothballed for a while, but is now restored and operating through the season."

You mean there's hope of recovering my adolescence after all?! Naw, I'd just fall asleep in the front seat next to my (lovely) wife.

Helcio, watch for the upcoming post on making the prints.

Doug, from the beginning (or that morning at The Pike, at least) I've envisioned the Drive-ins project as a book just as much as a portfolio or exhibition of prints. I've written a thorough text on the history, and have conducted many fascinating interviews. Take it from me, boring people do not run drive-in theaters in the twenty-first century!

At this point I need one more colossal road trip to photograph the theaters in the southwest and up the west coast.

Hi Ken,

I almost responded to your comment in the other thread, to hold out a glimmer of hope about recovering lost youth. Then I thought it would be more fun to let you find out here when this post went up. The Pike may be young again, but we are, er, hmm....mature.

Hey Carl. great stuff. Brings back memories for me of my Burke & James days.
I think Karsh used the commercial ektar for most of his famous portraits.

Beaucoup de merci des renseignements utiles.
