My original intent was to simply do 5 shots of Gary
and call it good.  Why 5 you ask?


chickering grand, Pinkham Bi-Quality wide open

Because that's what fits in the JOBO 3005 tank, so
even though that's a rather odd reason, I tend to
work in fives.

So while I was waiting for Gary to show up, there was
some beautiful afternoon light on the piano and I
peered through the Pinkham Bi-Quality lens and
decided I needed that picture.  It just looked like
classic Pinkham & Smith material.

So that left 4 sides for Gary.  Long boring story short,
I did 6 sheets on Gary (one I feared was compromised)
and the one of the piano was seven.  An odd number.

I needed to use up 3 more sheets on something, and
I had some un-tried Aerial Recon Plus X, and 2 new
to me lenses.  Plenty of reasons to use up more film!

Thus the 3 Gerstner Machinists chest photos.
