I’m spending a few days in Seattle, so of course I’m out taking photos. Seattle has an amazing library so that was one of my first stops. I was able to shoot a number of cool images including this last one just before the camera police arrived to let me know that I was welcome to shoot casual photos, but could not use my tripod.

ded to secure a more while long strips may be treated as in de-velopment. Precautions in Drying. Negatives are usually dried by standin^^them in a grooved wooden, metal, or porce-lain rack. Patterns of these have beenalready illustrated. A porcelain rack (Fig.206) is a useful acquisition, taking up verylittle room and being also available forwashing, by standing it with the nega-tives in any suitable receptacle. Dryingshovdd take place in a fairly warm atmo-sphere, free from dust. It is the practiceof some photographers, in fine weather, tostand the racks outside in the open aii.This certainly promotes rapid drying, butdust and grit are apt to collect on the film.A good plan is to enclose the rack in a.muslin or gauze cover, after the style ofa meat-cooler ; this will effectually preventthe deposition of dust. A drying box c iithis principle is now obtainable, and is agreat convenience. In doubtful or cohiweather, the best place for the rack containing the plates is on the mantelshelf

A Slice of Life in Malaysia (and thanks for the Facebook Fan club members breaking 1,000 strong!)

I spent a few weekends in the Chinese area of Melaka, which is on the southern coast. After it gets dark outside and you walk down the streets, you can always see little glowing lights coming from inside homes that are crammed together in the streets. There is a general clatter of Chinese voices with the clanking and scraping of dinner being made and shared. One of them had the door slightly ajar with a good mood coming out (picked up by my Jacobson’s Organ), so I craned my neck around inside with a smile to see what was happening. I had my camera in plain sight, and it’s always novel for them to see a whitey in this area of town. I gave an international greeting of "howdy", and then the international sign of "can I take a photo of your interesting living area", and then I snapped a single RAW for conversion to HDR later.

There are all kinds of interesting things inside if you look close… like a massive amount of eggs for a small home and also the ever-present Milo, which all Malaysians love and have in ready supply.

I checked the Facebook fan club today, which I should do more, and saw that it had broken 1,000 fans! Thanks everyone – that is cool. I am not sure the best thing to do on there yet; I’d like to occasionally do fun things there, like I do on Twitter, for people that like to see real-time updates or behind-the-scenes activity. If you have any ideas, feel free to start up a discussion thread there on the fan site and I’ll be sure to check in to see what I can do to help out!
