Quick Post - December 2018 Chandler, AZ Type In

If I only had a dime for every time I told myself I needed to update this blog...

Here's hoping you, dear reader, are well and enjoying the holiday season. The wife and I attended another fabulous type in hosted by Jeremiah, of the The Quirky QWERTY, yesterday.

It really is heartening to see tiny humans having fun punching keys and seeing the results appear on the page - while their chaperones look on with bemused smiles.

Of course, there were a few adults enjoying the experience. But, really, the kids are just a blast to watch.

I really enjoyed catching up with old friends from the typing community. These shots are from a new-ish Sony Nex-7 mounted with vintage Canon glass. I'm still getting used to this beast and it shows. Look for a typecast, with some images originating from analog sources in the near future.

I'll close with the obligatory Bill Wahl picture.

Happy Festivus!

2016 Phoenix Type-In

Hello Typosphere! It's been too long. I won't apologize, as life is good and I'm happy and busy.

It feels like cheating; not typing this on one of my machines. But time is short, and the reason for the post isn't my text.

I just got my first roll of film, with a few shots from this year's type in, back from the processor. These are from my Canonet III-QL with Delta 400 and natural light (for fellow film nerds.) More to come as rolls are developed.

Hope you are well,

El Patron

Hello Typosphere,

I hope you're all well and up to your eyeballs in beautiful typewriters. I'm still here, but I have been spending much of my time outdoors and/or fiddling with vintage cameras and film. Although I haven't had much to say, I do still keep up with your blogs.

I will probably post more once the Arizona weather turns toasty. In the meantime, here are a few shots I took while visiting Bill at MTE:

Teaser Photos from the 2014 Phoenix Type-In

I'm still waiting to process a few rolls of film, but I thought I'd share a few teasers from the recent Type-In here in Phoenix.

A proper write up will follow when all the photos are ready.
