Today I shot the last roll of the Shanghai GP3 that Andrew sent to me. I don't think that I will go out of my way to find more of it, but it is always fun to try new film, and the price was right! Here are some snowy woods shots. This roll was taken with my Kodak Hawkeye 2A folder. f268

I can't stop shooting aspen trees whenever I see them.

This one looks like it might be worth printing to paper. I am not sure that the scan does it justice.

hey, I like the aspen trees earl. *Looks like you're gettin' as much out of that stuff as it's possible to get, too.

Addit. the fence in the following post is really cool too !!!

Here is the path down to South Valley Park. My driveway is on the other side of the fence to the right. Even though this was shot just at sunset, and the exposure was more than ten minutes, the snow is still textureless.

you are the poet of the north woods, earl. they are so wild and orderly, simultaneously. #2 and #3 are exceptional, i think (or maybe i just respond to your abstract "field" photos). please don't resist the aspen impulse- you are onto something there.

nice berra-ism.

those aspen shots would be fitting accompaniment to a sigurd olsen book. well done.

Earl, my favorite is the second image: just the right mix of randomness and order.

Also (and perhaps its just too much holiday eggnog), but in the first image, I can see a little Kermit-the-Frog-like face in the foreground tree trunk.

I've always taken a liking to aspens, especially barren, winter settings.

Well done.

Excellent series, Earl. The first three matted and framed together would make a very nice display. Good work.
