Jon Crispin's Notebook


Posted in Fungi, Landscape, Plants by joncrispin on 03/08/2010

Cris and I were walking in Northampton today and I saw the fungus on the left growing on a tree.  It was about 9 feet off the ground so I guessed at the framing.  Just missed the right side.  As I was taking the picture, a woman driving by got our attention and said there was a bigger one on Olive Street.  So we drove over and saw the one on the right.  I like the first one a bit better, but the one on Olive is huge.

Jack Gilbert

Posted in People, Published work by joncrispin on 09/04/2010

Another amazing person I photographed for Poets & Writers was Jack Gilbert.  He grew up in Pittsburgh so we talked alot about Western Pennsylvania.  Along with Franz Wright, he was one of the most interesting and provocative people I have ever spent time with.  He talked about love, art, and success and told me wild stories about his life.
