Wow! Amazing visual art. Land art. Film art. The best I can say is the truth---I will never forget it. Ever.

I really loved super 8, but mine never looked like this. No one's did.

As always, I love your blog.

ha... too young for super 8, or just technologically cautious parents, here?!

very glad i stumbled across this; it links to many other things that are ongoing at the moment, in particular: time-sequence; landscape and excess (!?) - many thanks, sam :)
