It feels like forever since my last journal entry, but after looking, I realize it’s only been 5 days. It feels like forever, and that’s probably because I’ve been quite busy. Friday I spent most of the day driving to and from Panopticon Imaging, where I had ‘Green Mountain Slope’ scanned for a hotel project. I also spent some time looking at paper options for upcoming prints. I’ll be back to visit Panopticon in the very near future to scan the Seven Summers series and some other work for prints.

I’ve also been catching up on a few garden design projects that remained incomplete from earlier this year. It felt a bit odd to switch aprons. I feel very committed to my studio now.

The Canon 5D Mark ii went out for repair last Thursday, and I just received word that the shutter will need to be replaced. I expect the camera will be back in about a week or so. I’m not very happy with the situation —it was a huge investment and I’ve been using it for a little more than a year— but I’m glad it can be fixed.

Meanwhile, we’ve been having some unseasonably foggy mornings. I associate heavy morning fog more with September than August, but I love the effect and will gladly take it any time of the year. Seven Summers VI. Drawn from foggy morning runs through the dampened forest, and more than a little bit of melancholy today.
