    If anyone had told me I'd be making photographs of flowers over all these years, I'd have laughed. But, it seems my love of the 'natural history' aspect of growing things has won out . . .from Daguerrotypes to Cyanotypes to broken old specimen plates, this collection itself will keep growing....

    THAT'S RIGHT -CHINESE NEW YEAR IS UPON US- YEAR 4711 -AND THE YEAR OF THE SNAKE !  AS I LIVE IN CHINATOWN, THE PARADE IS IN FRONT OF MY DOOR!!  LAST YEAR, I TOOK SHOTS ON THE FLY, THEN REALIZED THAT SOME IMAGES BROUGHT ME BACK TO AN OLDER, MORE INSCRUTABLE CHINATOWN- A CHINATOWN IN OLD CABINET CARDS, PEELING POSTERS, DUSTY  HERBSHOPS, MYSTERIOUS DARK CORRIDORS LEADING WHO-KNOWS-WHERE....SO I PROCESSED SOME IMAGES IN OLD TECHNIQUES, AND BLENDED ALTERNATIVE AND NOW VERY LITTLE- KNOWN TECHNIQUES WITH DIGITAL ONES TO MAKE A SMALL PORTFOLIO OF WHAT IS STILL THE 'OLD CHINATOWN'...AT LEAST IN MY IMAGINATION.....

    CLICK ON IMAGES TO GO TO "MY CHINATOWN".....AND HAVE A GREAT 4711  !  s t e p h

    The Musée Vaché was an imaginary museum I created years ago - perhaps even a decade- I posted the first complete showings from the musée in 'slideshow' form on myspace.  Its probably still there, tho I havent used myspace for a long time....I've been asked about it a lot recently, don't know why- but I may repost some on this site, who knows.....here is a pic of two of the museum's founders, circa 1914...
