FSS: The Rim Again · Fri­day Slide Scan #29 re­vis­its Pa­cif­ic Rim Na­tion­al Park; if you like these you’ll like the pre­vi­ous vis­it­s: #20, #21, and #23. This time we have a storm shot and a sand shot ...
 
FSS: Wood in Black and White · Fri­day Slide Scan #23 is an­oth­er December-1985 Pa­cif­ic Rim shot; the wood is drift­wood, most of its colour bleached out ...
 
FSS: Rim Details · Fri­day Slide Scan #21, like last week’s, is De­cem­ber 1986 pho­tographs from Pa­cif­ic Rim Na­tion­al Park. Th­ese are on a small­er scale: a seashell and a leaf ...

So, rather than let them lan­guish unloved in the safe but cold em­brace of DVD-ROMs, I shall drop one here at the end of most week­s. This week: drift­wood on some Pacific-Rim beach, cir­ca 1990 ...
 
On Darkness and Film and Bits · Win­ter sol­stice, which at 50°N lat­i­tude means damn few hours of light, and in this grey cor­ner of the world the light is poor stuff, a dark cot­ton ceil­ing, edge­less, col­or­less. Which, plus an in­ter­est­ing es­say from Glenn Reynolds has me think­ing about film and com­put­ers and pic­tures and the light that isn’t here ...
