Coming Attractions

The Field Lab - Thu, 2017/03/09 - 5:12pm
I have recently been in contact with my Swedish filmmaker friend Jesper Wachtmeister.  He and Kenneth Svedlund came back to visit me when I was freshly injured and still in a wheelchair.  The film they did which included a look at TFL back in 2012 is well worth the $3.99 rental.  Jesper is graciously allowing me to use some desperately needed footage for an upcoming friday night film - it will be up on March 17th.  He has another project he is working on and the specifics are here for those that are inclined to share their story...  75,80,68,0,C
Presently I am working on a documentary with the title ”Reset”. 
It will be based on interviews with people who have chosen to change identity and start a new life.I am primarily looking for people who have made a choice to do this – not people who were forced to change identity.Today we have interviewed four persons who for different reasons have chosen to start over under a new or hidden identity.  Now I am looking for other people who would be willing to share their stories. Please contact me on if you are interested, or if you have suggestions of people - and I’ll be happy to send more information and clips about the project.

camera soup

The Field Lab - Wed, 2017/03/08 - 3:50pm

Souped up the Canon T3i with a few extras for under 200 bucks.  Gearing up for some astophotography.  Seems I have been out here almost 10 years and haven't really taken advantage of our dark skies.  I hardly even take notice of starry nights any more.  I have been inspired by my friend TJ Avery.  FYI - he does photo workshops every year in the Big Bend.

Picked up a battery grip to add a little more juice to the rig.  (I remember when these where known as "auto winders" back in the days of film cameras.)  Of course I also needed some extra batteries with a charger.  To round it out I bought a relatively inexpensive fish-eye lens.

After a few tests I need to send my camera body off to Canon for a long overdue cleaning.  It has been subjected to a great deal of abuse over the years.  79,89,55,0,C

be nice to beasts...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2017/03/05 - 1:14pm
Ecclesiastes 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.  20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

The Field Lab - Thu, 2017/03/02 - 5:52pm
A neighbor on the ranch brought in a baby bunny that was captured but not killed by her cousin's cat.  I think this is just the place to rehabilitate him.  60,72,47,0,B

Where no man dares to go...

The Field Lab - Wed, 2017/03/01 - 3:55pm

There are "things" I need to find in the "archives" that I have been thinking about for some time - and for future friday night films.  As long as I am at it, I might as well go through everything and sort'n'cull it all.  There is stuff in there that I haven't seen since I packed it up almost 10 years ago.  This will keep me busy for awhile...  79,76,53,0,B
