Living Large

I love large format color photography.  If I could start over (or I would say reinvent
but I'm not certain that I'm solidly enough of anything to switch to something
else) I would get seriously into photography. Of course, no one is stopping me,
but don't think I have the social personality for it even though photographers
will often say that the beauty of being the photographer is that it gives you
license or a reason to be places you otherwise wouldn't.

Large format cameras on tripods are kind of something else.
This isn't quick and dirty street photography, which isn't my forte either.
Fortes are hard to find.

Lake oswego

While at a Williamsburg surf shop, not shopping, I was drawn
to a hardback copy of  Joel Sternfeld's
American Prospects. The cover photo fooled me into thinking it would all be
beachy Americana. The first image I opened to, though, was pure Oregon, no
question. That color palette, goldenrod, gray, the wet bark dust. Is that a cul de sac? And sure enough,
it was called Lake Oswego, Oregon (1979).

Gresham oregon

Then quite a bit further on there was Gresham, Oregon (June
1979), my formative years summed up in a single image, trees in the background,
not on the streets, new grassless yards, dead ends, dirt piles, just replace
the Chrysler with a Mercury Monarch in the same color. Though Mt. Hood always
manages to seem hidden on my rare visits to Portland,  this photo, which is more vivid and detailed
in print than on screen, confirmed what I knew, that the white peak did loom always
on the horizon even in a cloudless haze.

I'm 99% certain we moved in the summer of '77 because I
remember neighborhood kids in our driveway asking how old I was and I said
four, but five was just weeks away, or at least it felt like it. Time is shaky
to reconstruct when you're not even a grade-schooler, though.  Just a few days ago one myth, if you can call
such frivolousness mythical, was recently shattered by an Entertainment Weekly
slide show, "15 Worst TV Spin-Offs Ever." (In true millennial listicles
for those without first-hand experience–hey, toddlerhood counts–fashion, the
use of worst and ever are kind of overblown. 
Phyllis wasn't quite Brady Brides level schlock.)

I have a distinct memory of living in the SE Portland rental
near Mall 205, the house before Gresham, and seeing a commercial for a new TV
show called Phyllis that I was dying to see (I may never know why). I was sent
to bed by 8pm, though, no ifs and or buts, so I pitched a fit, crying over
Chloris Leachman. Because we only lived in this house when I was in preschool,
hence four, it had to be 1976. But Phyllis premiered in 1975. Gah! I guess it
wasn't a new show when I took an interest in it, after all. What other false
memories am I harboring?

The show does have a really awesome theme song.

  5. I purchased this Replica watches in May 2011 and took it to a local Rolex jeweler to have hyperlinks removed.Simultaneously, I also brought my Rolex submariner to possess it serviced and cleaned by the jeweler(for $345…Ugh).The jeweler behind the counter asked the owner to confirm the price of the Rolex service.When the owner walked more than, he looked at my Invicta (as opposed to my actual Rolex) and stated, “Oh, the Daytona expenses a little bit a lot more as a result of….”I had to laugh.Granted, he did not take a close examine the watch but it’s important to figure a educated eye need to have already been in a position to spot a clone a mile away.

    Replica watches :Let me start off by saying I have never owned a pair of Wayfarers before. I’ve purchased some aviator Ray-Bans in the past and opted for a change this time around. A couple weeks ago I stopped at my local mall’s Sunglass Hut and browsed just a few seconds before zeroing in on the New Wayfarers. I tried them on and really liked the way they looked. I saw the price tag(174.99) and thought, “Great sunglasses, not so great price.” Asked the sales guy if he could do anything on the price and he politely said, “No, sorry I can’t.” So off to Amazon. I found the ray ban x rays same pair(New Wayfarer RB2132, Polarized, 55mm, Black/Grey) and then did like you are doing right now… read the reviews. We all want to belive the good ones, but as like anything else, we harp on the bad. I read all the reviews about the not-so-great experiences people had with being sent fake pairs and the disappointment of dealing with that. But I decide to roll the dice anyway. (I did make sure that the order was fullfilled by Amazon to assure that if I had any issues, I could return them).I owned my first pair of Ray-Ban’s about 20 years ago and decided to get another pair after recently seeing them advertised in a Brooks Brothers catalog. Their price – $109.00, Amazon (through Eyewear Everywhere – $75.94). I purchased the “New” Wayfarer with the sleeker style – not as obtrusive as the larger style can be. I purchased the 55/16/145 based on a review I read that stated that the 52/16/145 were too small. When I received them, I found the “55’s” to be way too big. I consider myself to be an average sized male and the “55’s” were practically sliding off my face. I sent an e-mail to Eyewear Everywhere, contacted a representative, and within a week had a pair of 52/16/145. The fit was remarkably better and I am more than pleased not only with the new pair, but also the customer service that was very pleasant and expedient! Enjoy your new Ray-Ban’s, but consider the style and fit before purchasing.

    Replica watches :These are super cool! I love them because they are so dark. Today, I had to work with those particular kind. This product shipped fast and quickly. Usually my glasses would be broken by now yet they are still standing. Highly recommend this buyer. These shades arrived in perfect condition and they fit perfect and are pretty well structured. I noticed some reviews said that they had polarized on the left side that wouldn’t come off and on mine it was just a peel off sticker lol can’t beat em for tha price best rolex copy watches if your looking for a fly stylish pair of shades and don’t wanna break your bank click the buy button lol :p I lose my glasses all the time. The look of these glasses for the price . well you just cant beat it. Love these glasses they are polarized and they look good and like i said cant beat the price. The product arrived on time and they are much better quality than the ones I got for free at my school. I’ll probably get more of these if my current one breaks. These sunglasses look better than in the picture! As spring drew near, I knew that I’d need some sunglasses or else I’d get skin cancer around the area of my eyes. These glasses were the perfect match for me! Not only were my eyes protected from the sun’s lethal wrath, but they are stylish as well! After putting them on, my sister thought I looked better than her boyfriend. Overall the glasses came in perfect condition. I look forward to buying from this seller again. 5/5. including thomas sabo 0754 the incest. I have only had the product for a week and so far they are working splendidly. They are better then I would have expected for the price but at moments I recognize their cheapness. As the headlines says so far so good. loved this product.. the client made me really very happy.. the interactions are excellent.. did not expect such good interaction. Love these glasses. This is my 3rd or 4th pair because I lose them or break them often (break by sitting/stepping on them – not bc they are poorly made) They look like Ray Bans without the price tag and fit great and love that they are polarized! Can’t find any other glasses this cheap with as good of quality anywhere!

    I purchased this Replica watches mainly because I wanted a submariner homage.This did not disappoint! I’ve received a lot of compliments, even from individuals who own the real submariner! Whenever people today point it out I would tell them it can be an Invicta.I expected people to say, “Oh,” but people today have been asking concerning the brand.I put on this watch in rotation with my Raymond Weil and I love each of them thoroughly.I’m not 1 of those watch collectors or enthusiasts who care concerning the minutia of his or her watch.I purchased this merely to satisfy my desire of owning something that looks like a sub.If it falls a minute slow or quickly, I don’t really care.I have my cellphone to maintain precise timing.Besides, if I am going to be somewhere important I’m going to have there at least 15-30 minutes in advance.
