Hopper, Miles Davis and Fire Island

My Rodinal arrived today so maybe I’ll use on some Tri-X I’ll take tonight or tomorrow. Maybe Wednesday I’ll develop the film. I have no idea what I’m going to shoot yet. I may just walk the streets tomorrow shooting reflections with me in them, see if I can come up with something.

I’m up loading Hopper’s Early Sunday Morning the painting I am trying to emulate. I uploading one of the images that I took on an early Saturday morning. This was taken with my 50mm. The 50mm shots work better than the 21mm; they have much less distortion. Also going up are two Fire Island Beach houses.

Miles Davis’s ’58 Sessions is playing. Bill Evans just played a great solo on Love for Sale. It’s a great album; it may not bind together as Kind of Blue does, but the group plays well on very take.
