Jon Crispin's Notebook

Boiled Egg

I have mostly been posting suitcase photos lately.  That project has really been on my mind, and I am really pushing to finish all the editing.


But I have missed posting goofy stuff here, so I’ll try to start looking for things that catch my eye.

When I was shooting Masonic Temples around New York State I came across a collection of plates at Western Star Lodge #15 in Bridgewater.  Some months later I sent them some nice prints of what I shot that day and they were kind enough to send me a place setting.  I still use them most days.

Wishing you all a great weekend.

Masonic plates

I started going to the Syracuse China seconds store back in the early 80s when I lived in Ithaca.  Back then they sold all kinds of great items.  I have a nice set of State of Louisiana Senate plates that I still use all the time.  And since my days at the Meadville Unitarian Church, I have loved the kind of kitchens that one finds in churches and meeting halls.  I have recently been working on a project for the New York State Museum photographing Masonic Lodges.  This shot comes from the kitchen at Western Star Lodge #15. Two birds with one stone.
