The Thin Building, Page 1 of 3
Recently, I was sorting through boxes of old stuff. I discovered two important documents, both dating from the year 1977. This
was a very important time for me as an artist, because that is when I decided that I wanted to become a Fine-art Photographer. The first
document that I found was a Photo-diary, titled "Journal". (I will post this document when I complete transcribing
it) The second document was titled "Photo Log". It began with roll 77-13 (the 13th roll that I shot in 1977) and ended with roll
77-18. I decided to post the first "Shoot" (The Thin Building) from this document. The comments that I made in 1977 are placed below each image, using a blue font.
I have also added my current thoughts using a mouse-over text window. In the future, I may add additional "Shoots" to this document. When
I have completed all six rolls, I may continue with other "Shoots" with only my current thoughts. Please note that I include all images from each
shoot, even the bad ones. If I bracket the same shot, then I will only show one image. All images (as always with my work) are shown full frame. All
of my work is always printed full frame. I will only crop (rarely) if absolutely necessary such as for a defect on the negative. The image composed in
the viewfinder is always meant to be the final crop.

I like the place across from where I was parked. Oops, a Car.

Have arrived at my subject-matter. The first one may as well be a long shot.
