Black and White
photography from the Chesapeake Bay watershed by Bill Emory
Gray and I were walking the Atlantic Avenue, River/Old Harbor Road loop. Visited with the Holsteins.
scanned the negative strips on a flatbed. This the last roll of TriX 35mm/36 I shot.
There have been two rolls of TriX hanging in my darkroom, drying, for years. I cut the film yesterday, discovered images from the summer of 2010. A decade. Fade to black.
Throw an elbow? Elbowed out of the way. Sharp elbows. Up to the elbows. Tennis elbow.
A color a feeling a name an album…
This is a sweet potato squash, an heirloom variety. It grows very long vines, 20 feet and more, that will climb fences, hedges, possibly trees, due to tendrils that hook on objects and then coil tight, pulling the vine up. The flesh is like pumpkin, but milder. We’ve had big heavy fruit on vines up 5-6 feet in air on hedges or climbing a flowering cherry. It is resistant to squash vine borer, loves good light, it is a smart, independent-minded vine.
Tilly is “mouthy”, likes greeting people by taking their hands and feet in her mouth. Work remains to be done…

I generally don’t appreciate tattoos. This one I like.
