    Fake Tintypes – just more Pixelography
    on: April 10, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    So he is “having fun”. Does not excuse the misuse and outright fabrication of tintype. As bad as “carbon print” with digital inks – which are not Carbon Prints either.

    Get another term for what he is doing instead of stealing and bastardizing reality.

    The article about Cactus “Tintype” images is not about Tintype. It is fake – nothing more than another digital computer trick.

    If you are going to do Tintypes – get the tin, camera, lens and chemistry and do the real thing. Faking it is bad enough but calling it “tintype” is not good at all.

    Snowblowers for Sale ©2022 Daniel A Smith

    Winter is looking good but we do need more snow for the moisture. Really need it. Farm country and the water is needed or crops won’t do well.

    Snow can be a lot of fun but having a snowblower sure does save a lot of shoveling when you have to get out of the drive. About a hundred yards for us each snowfall and wind caused drifting.

    Snowy and blowing. Sub zero with wind chills near 40 below.

    When I drive anywhere near Wing, North Dakota I stop to eat at the Chat & Chew Cafe. A local landmark, the food is good and the owner always friendly.
