Photography Equipment

Three well-known, reputable dealers are Adorama, B&H Photo, and KEH cameras. KEH specializes in used equipment. But I buy from the people I know:

Precision Camera in Austin, Texas. I've used them since they began, decades ago.

Cameras, Etc. here in Delaware, where I live now.

Friends Websites:

What's What: Philosophical Writings by Bill Meacham. Bill and I studied philosophy together in graduate school and worked on Austin's underground newspaper, The Rag, in the early 1970s. He writes clearly and simply.

Pet Sitting and Dog Walking, Wilmington, Delaware. Heather Walters has a good reputation in New Castle County.

Long Films

When you get the chance, rent the 1937 movie "The Edge of the World" about a Scottish fishing village on the edge of extinction. It is written and directed by Michael Powell, one of my favorite screenwriters.

A follow up is Powell's 1978 documentary "Return to the Edge of the World", which I have not seen. In it, he returns to the island of Fulla, in the Shetlands, where the 1937 movie was made. "A melencholy trip to a world that has vanished."

My favorite films by Powell were made with Emeric Pressburger, including the romantic "I Know Where I'm Going" (1945), also set in the isles of Scotland, and my very favorite, "A Canterbury Tale" about small town life near Canterbury, England during World War II.

Another film about primitive fishing villages worth watching is Robert J. Flaherty's 1934 documentary, "Man of Aran", about fisherfolk on the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. January 2010
