2:30 – 5:00 pm, Saturday or Sunday, our three-year old slumbers.

Now what?  Run around like mad and accomplish as much as possible?  Delve into our own teaching or studio work?  Both possibilities make the weekend seem like the work week, typically separating us both physically and mentally, and offering no sense of simply being . . . too much doing.

In the summer of 2004 we repair an inherited camera – optimum camera maintenance prescribed as shooting one roll per month.  In achieving this and testing the camera that we both want to use, a collaboration begins.  The basis thus far is simple: one exposure each, alternating frames.  Because naptime occurs at home, the photos are in and around our domain, as we experience our place and free time with new eyes.
