#16. "When is the test?"
In response to In response to 15

Los Angeles, US
          

Lots to learn. I filled two pages of a yellow legal tablet with notes. Most definitions and nomenclarue. Have to find out what a Sidecar is, for one.

My memory of work pattens was revived. From 35 years as a journalist, I remember how to organize and file images. And since I'm using a Mac computer, I believe that keywords and tags might replace the need for a full Catalog program. Macs have Searchlight, so folder don't have to be open to peek inside.

Still aren't comfortable with XMP and EXIF. i'll get there.

Coincidentally, my first paid photo project in 15 years was laid in my lap. First "anything" project, to tell the truth.

By some strange convergence of heavenly forces, I was befriended by an Apache Indian. He has rescued over 200 homeless veterans off the streets of Los Angeles. With no infrastructure or tax burden to the community. You can read about Dreamer if you search the archives of the Los Angeles Times for October, 2011. Search for "Freedom barber shop."

I was not in the military. Dreamer cuts hair for veterans at the West Los Angeles VA Center (largest in the US). I was in Naval ROTC but got rejected at the physical. My bosses at Flying Tigers and FedEx were all Naval or Marine fighter pilots. What a tale that is. I went by bicycle to the 50th commemoration of the D-Day landings in France. When I told Dreamer about my past, he more or less opened the door for me to his secret world.

On a trip home at New Years, he enlisted the help of 5 strong Indians to help detox a young women who had become deranged on crystal meth. Dreamer is a healer and humanist above all.

In 10 days, I'm traveling with him by train to Benson Arizona. He wants me to photograph his ranch, with side trips to Tombstone and the Chiracauwa (sp) Apache Indian reservations. As a retiree from FedEx, I get shipping for free. So instead of humping gear onto and off a train, I'm FedExing these items ahead to the ranch:

D7000, 2x SB800 speedlights, 16-85mm DX lens, 12-24mm lens, 80-200mm AF lens, 60mm Micro lens, Gitzo tripod. Gary Fong diffusion domes. Assorted batteries and SD cards, lens filters.

All of our discourse on this thread has given me resolve to tackle the tangle of images when I get back home. I think the light in Southern Arizona this time of year will be enchanting.

Thanks to you all for putting up with my rambling.
