A more complete gallery of black and white images from my trip down the Susquehanna River is finally up on the site: Link to it here.
All of these are from my roughly 440-mile trek down the Susquehanna on foot and by canoe from its origin in Otsego LakeÂ in Cooperstown, NY, a couple of blocks from the Baseball Hall of Fame, to its end in the Chesapeake Bay at Havre de Grace, MD. I grew up next to the river, in central Pennsylvania, and I knew what was out there â€” in it, on it, and along its banks. I originallyÂ printed all these Â in a traditional darkroom, but this time I had the 35-mm Kodak Tri-X negatives scanned by Neil Dixon at Yankee Imaging in Waterbury, VT. I did the digital darkroom work in PhotoShop. There are about 60 photos in the gallery, so it will take about five minutes to see them all, but I hope you will find it worth the time. You can click through them or they will run as a five-minute slide show on their own. The next step will be to finally get them collected in a book.
