I was wondering if you have ever been down to Focal Point Photography in Dallas, OR? My husband and I went there yesterday. It is a film lover's dream!! Mike, the owner, let us go upstairs where he has TONS of enlargers, cameras, lenses, filters, etc, ad infimitum. We were in heaven!!

If you haven't been there, it is worth the trip for those of us who love the darkroom.

And, of course, compliments on your beautiful images. (Are you familiar with www.fredmiranda.com? It is a wonderful photo site with some great people who post their images. There are several photographers from the Portland area. It is worth a look. Your images would be appreciated there.)

I've never made it to Dallas Oregon, but if I ever do I will certainly check it out. I'm a regular customer at Hollywood Camera on Sandy Blvd. A wonderful old camera store still run by the orginal owner who has been there since the 50's, Thanks for the link to fredmiranda.com

We love Hollywood Camera and we miss Mike. You are right that it is a wonderful store. But Focal Point is still worth the drive. We were upstairs for ages, just by ourselves, opening bin after bin of REAL (not digital) photo gear. The address is 161 W. Ellendale, 97338. So awesome!

We really like fredmiranda.com. It gives us great ideas for road trips. And the people are very helpful. Not too many snooty posters.

P.S. Have you had much experience with stereo cameras? Lee (husband) and I just got a couple of them. A new adventure!

In the Hollywood store I've seen several stereo cameras and they intrigue me but they require special equipment for viewing so I am not all that interested in them. I also like the challenges and possibilities in viewing the world 'in the flat' or 2 dimensional. 3 dimensional objects change in the photograph but 2 dimensional objects don't. A shadow has just as much substance in a photograph as the object that casts it. This idea intrigues me.
