I have been thinking of what kind of pictures I would want to make with the HL 35x35 ULF view camera (from the Czech Republic). The work of the great Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimota comes to mind. The simplicity-sparseness of his seascapes I find so utterly beautiful and peaceful.

Imagine these pictures, large 24x35 or 35x35 ambrotypes (pictures on glass), one of a kind works that speak to the vastness and tranquil beauty of Canada. I could see work like that in eventual display at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. Can it be done? Yes I believe it can. Anything is possible if you work hard enough to achieve it.
