Time getting away from me since I'm home. A few more pix from my Ithaca trip I haven't had a chance to post. Aafke, my host, simply had to show me these antique implements before I left:
You can see what's in her left hand - a GIANT scissors that is at least a foot long. Real. We think these were tailor's tools once upon a time. The item in her left hand --well, it can't be anything else but a rotary cutter. There is nothing new under the sun. These items must be 100 years old.
Then, en route home I couldn't resist taking this picture.
I spent a couple of hours Tues and again on Wed. in the studio. It was not enough time either day and I felt pressured and frustrated because everything I put up on the wall looked awful. Brick wall: I've hit it. Last night, at home, I found some gelatin prints that have been sitting around for 6 or 7 years and put them up on the wall at home. Here's what they looked like last night; by this morning, half of them were on the floor.
After breakfast, out the door again to the studio to get a fresh start.
