Peggy’s Cove Nona Scotia 1981

In 1981 we traveled to Nova Scotia. Those were the days of film photography and although I did some monochrome, mostly I shot 35mm color transparency film. I don’t have too many of the slides left. I either lost or had two trays of slides stolen some time in the 1980’s. I have shared some of the survivors; High Tide in Bay Of Fundy and Peggy’s Cove. This is one of the monochrome images from that trip.

Regent Square Day Lily #3… Pictures of Lily

We planted a lot of day lilies under the misconception that deer would not eat them. They destroyed the ones in our front garden but relentless application of repellent has saved the beauties in our back garden. The dark purple ones will be next to bloom. I think I will call this one Pictures of Lily. Thank you The Who.

Before Photoshop #4—Peggy’s Cove NS 1980

One of the last composites I ever made in the darkroom. This is actually a triple burn. I used part of an image I took in Peggy’s Cove. There were so many birds around yet I didn’t capture any in the frames I shot. The sea gull was from an image captured in Lake worth Florida and the other birds were from a picture taken in the Bay of Fundy on Rugby Neck NS.

The image was created in my darkroom in State College PA.

Before Photoshop #3—Made in Pittsburgh 1976

Before Photoshop not all the magic was created in the darkroom. This multiple exposure was done in the studio using a Nikon F3 camera. It took hours to get it right, not the minutes it would take today with Photoshop. The client was Corning Glass and it was created in my studio in Pittsburgh.

Before Photoshop #2—Made in Pittsburgh 1977

I had done a number of darkroom composite pieces in monochrome but this was the first one I did in color. Color photographic paper was expensive in the 1970’s but this was a fairly easy blend since the skies in both images were similar in tone. I was able to complete it with only wasting one piece of paper. The airplane was taken at the old Pittsburgh Airport, The buildings are on Worth Street In Palm Beach Florida.
