Below are several winter colors photographed this day, the 25th of January, 2010, on a short walk of five blocks here in Wallingford. I have named none of them, for the reason, I confess, that I know the names of very few of them. Perhaps you will help with a comment. But how can we indicate them? If I can number them below I will. [Carolyn Honke has sent a few names this way from the Azores, where she lives, and we wil include them.]

I was hoping you could help me with a signed, mounted photo I picked up a few years ago. It’s an overhead shot, looking West, featuring Husky stadium, 520, I-5, and Lake Union. It’s signed by a Hal Porter, 67. It’s black and white, approximately 16 X 20 inches. I’ve assumed that it was taken in 1967. I had no luck trying to contact Mr. Porter or his Studio. It was stamped “Hal Porter Photos” on the back.
I’m in the midst of doing some horse-trading with a friend of mine and we’re trying to put a value on it. Can you help? I can be reached at: 206.795.4683.
I neither know nor know of Hal Porter. Perhaps I should.
Except for the rare – very rare – occasion when I will look through a large collection and count prints and negatives and assign a “reasonable’ value to them in order to help with directing the collection as a tax-deductable donation to a public archive I don’t do assessments. The one exception is at Garage Sales where I look for art. In those instance everything is worth four dollars – or less if I can barter them down. I stand by that – with few exceptions.
