Last and First....



Wachusett Reservoir, West Boylston, MA December 2001
Brazos River Bridge, Brazos County, Texas March 2002

Upper Image: the last of the 2001 6x7cm negative that I've been working on for the past few months. Yes, months. If scanning was all I was doing, I could have probably finished 2001 in about 3-4 weeks. When we first moved to West Boylston in 1994, I have taken to mind to have a visual relationship with the area around and of this historic body of water.

Lower Image: this is the first of the 2002 6x7cm negatives, many more to come. Out in the countryside, especially in the more southern and southwestern areas of the country, you'll find a pull-off along beside the highway just before you get to the bridge where you can do down under bridge structures to do a little fishin' or tubin' or put a boat in. And I'm pretty sure there are other activities that take place there in the dark of the moon that wouldn't be proper to talk about here.

Nice job, now you have me wondering about some of my old negatives.

I really like the Wachusett Reservoir picture. That place and the time of the negative has a lot of meaning for me. Thanks for posting it!
