Whoop dee dooo - 12 November 2017

It has been almost three years since I posted anything, and a great deal has changed. Jack Lucido and I finished "Wish You Were Here" (The Robert C. Bishop Story) in 2016, and it was presented at film festivals and at the Western Colorado State University (Gunnison), and the Grand Junction Art Center, where both had an exhibition of RCB's photographs.





Alas, we lost Robert "Bob" Bishop this year at the respectable age of 96. You can view and download the film at Amazon Prime Videos.

Jack is off to new film ventures, and I'm both trying to get an exhibition, film and podcast off the ground - and writing.....
One of the articles I've recently written was about Victor Landweber's American Cameras (1983)http://www.landweber.com/about.htm  and I'm writing an essay about one of his other series:  http://www.landweber.com/Artist%20to%20Artist/index.htm

Many other changes....which I will later write about in an appropriate fashion....

A short trip to Montana

Over Memorial Day, Raven and I ran over to Montana for a week....visiting Bonnie Lambert and Marshall Mayer in Helena, and then onto Big Arm and Bigfork around the Flathead Lake, first visiting Sandy and Mike and then Kathy and Stephen.

 The bottom image is Glacier Lake from Apgard. Raven has now been to 6 states, and gone swimming in 2.....

World's Largest Truck

Canadians seem to like big things, especially the father north that you travel. Undoubtedly it is linked to the scale - immense valleys and mountainous hillside filled with trees (and no trails or roads), large lakes and rivers (many of them greenish with the silt of glacial runoff) and clear, bright blue skies.

In Sparwood, BC, we inadvertently found what was billed as the "World's Largest Truck."
Built by General Motors in 1974 to haul coal (retired in 1990) - 260 tons, with tires that are 11 feet in diameter.
