Semi-sweet bird of youth mid 1970s. This darkroom was in the basement of an old, large converted family residence, used as a men’s residence. It is where Peter Mohan kindly taught me how to develop film and develop enlargements. This was where i experienced the Theory of Relativity for the first time. When you are playing in a darkroom, can’t call it work, you believe you have been there for a couple of hours but when you check your watch it turns out that two was really six hours. Totally absorbing, relaxed concentration.
from my flickr posting in 2006: “I dont know why but this year Shakey was less interested in starting the swimming season. In the past he and his sister would have gone in even with the remnants of ice on shore. At any rate, yesterday he went for his first swim of the season. He also managed to find the skeleton of a large fish, a muskellunge.
I am always amused when he finds a dead fish washed up on shore and goes and rolls on it. I understand that this is to mask his scent. The only trouble is I have this mental image that forms of a couple of bunnies in the woods, a half mile from shore, sniffing the air. One says to the other, “Gee, I wonder what a dead fish is doing walking into our woods.”
It was 22 C. yesterday, warm enough for shorts for me. On the other hand, a few days ago the temperature dropped for two days and we had highs of just 2 above freezing. We have a curious Spring in these parts.”
Shakespeare passed away at age ten years and three months. He was a wonderful dog and we miss him. The dog in our lives now is Miss Grace, who is four years old and still very much a pup.
