Fixer. I've been playing with film heavily for a few years but just recently got into large format. I started with a monorail setup in Colorado in addition to a few of my 135 favorites (namely the L35, I haven't finished the roll of slide film in the Nickleodeon, yet.)

 One of the Caddy limos from The Big Texan in Amarillo, TX. Legendary for its 72oz. challenge, if a customer can finish the slab of beef (cooked to their preference), plus sides within an hour, its free. Winners are then supposedly given a tour of Amarillo in one of a fleet of horn-jeweled limos, but you can usually see them running around the city anyway. But if you're looking for something a little less than 72oz. in the panhandle area, I'd highly recommend hitting up my own favorite Blue Sky. Burgers, fries, and if you're a fan of it, definitely hit up the deep fried jalapenos.

Mountain road in Nathrop, CO on my way to Buena Vista. 

The Opera House and green at Silver Cliff Ranch in Nathrop. A bit more contrasty than the actual negative.

Meals at Silver Cliff are taken family style in the facility's dining hall. Camp staff serve each table meals that vary on theme, ranging from Hawaiian Night to Pancakes outdoors on the green. (The serving that is, the pancakes are served on plates).


"Ghetto" scan (shot against a light source and inverted) of a 4x5" negative, Chalk Cliffs in Nathrop Colorado behind Silver Cliff Ranch. Burke & James 75 Monorail camera with Ilex Acuton 190/4.8 lens, Ilford Delta 100 in HC110, Dilution B. I think there's a light leak somewhere.


And most recently, found this beauty locally...

... and one of the first shots. Some of the holders that came with the camera are loaded with... well I don't really know what it is, but here's one off of Delta 100 anyway.
