On Nov 11th it has been somewhat of a tradition to visit an old friend long since retired from service in the Canadian Forces. Clarence “Skip” Myers is a dear old friend of mine that is now in long term care in a retirement community. Skip and I go back to the Suffield days and he proved to be a good caring friend when I needed help and kindness. It’s sad to see Skip on his down days like today, but on others he is sharp and enthusiastic as a schoolboy. Here are four images from that day in 2015.
Part of the joy of analogue photography is the surprise you get after processing a roll or rolls of film that have accumulated over a period of time. I’ve processed some Tri X lately not knowing what latent image lived on the acetate. I’ll post some of those discovery’s today and in weeks to come. This one “Uncle Buck”was shot in Yellowknife NWT some years ago, I’m not sure when but no older than 6 years ago. It’s a typical Canadian frontier town. Sea plane overhead and a beat up pick up truck somewhere in Old Town. Back to the darkroom now.
