Rosanne Rosanadana on Semaphores
Author: dtoeppen

It's always something.

Everything was going well with a 10 shot shoot at 712. Had 1 min to relocate tripod after train to get first signal transition. MADE IT. Started camera for second cue, to capture WB going from approach to proceed. Waited...waited...30 sec past when signal should move...1 min past when signal should move...1:15...1:30...out of film.

Went down the line and found signals all believing that train was between 714 and 717, but it most certainly was not.

Ugh.

Will reshoot later. Half a day and 400' down the drain.

When does your semaphore docudrama come out-?  Glad you're getting some footage.  Looking forward to the EDITED version.

This is not a vacation, it's a QUEST. A quest to see a Moose..

I'm going to have to sell plasma for a couple years to save up the money to have film scanned. I figured 5 rolls and 1-2 weeks. I'm at 21 rolls and 4 weeks. I'm glad to say that I have wrapped at 717. One down and ~16 to go. Kind of a bummer that I've spent 4 days on 712 and didn't get closure today because of a signal system malfunction.

I need blue sky with no clouds tomorrow to get the missing shot. I'm not going on timing tomorrow, because I don't want to piss away more film. I'll have a spotter at 717 so I know when to start and end my shot. Start when see train. End when signal drops or train disappears with no signal drop.

What's all this talk about semi-fours? Why don't we just call them twos like we used to?  It's like new math.  We have to come up with a new name for everthing.
