The Detritus of a Life

In the months since Tim’s death I have faced the difficult task of going through his belongings. I don’t know how it is that we collect so much stuff – the bits and pieces of things that were of meaning, of interest, or merely caught our fancy. And I don’t know how it is that anyone else can sift through all that we leave behind and know with any certainty what should be done with each thing. I admit, there are so many things that I threw to the wind because it was just that overwhelming. I am sure if Tim could object, he would do so vociferously. At any rate, I have begun to put together lists, many lists, of the things that were not given or thrown away.

Tim took care of most of the great and expensive camera stuff before he died. I have a pretty lengthy list, nonetheless, of odds and ends that he left to me to take care of. I also have a lot of photography books. Later this month I will post these on his ebay account, or in various other places where I hope that they will catch someone’s eye and become their interest or fancy. Before that time, though, I wanted to put these items on here first. I know that it would make Tim most happy if some of these things could find their way to someone who not only looked at them for their own sake but also saw him in them. I also trust that if you see anything that is over or under priced – you will let me know.

Also, several people have expressed an interest in Tim’s photography. It would mean a lot to him to know that someone wanted one of his prints and that it had a place in their homes. I did an exhibit of his work back in March as my memorial to him. It was special and made more so as Tim had curated all the photography for it. It is my intention to post those prints here – hopefully by sometime in August. If you would like one, or one of the many pictures he used in creating this blog – again, reach out to me at

Finally, I ask your patience with me. It has been almost 6 months but that time has moved slowly for me, and I am moving slowly within it.

Below is a list of the camera equipment, paraphenalia, and collectible stuff I have and the asking price. If you are interested in any of the following you can contact me at I will be happy to provide pictures and more information so we can make sure that what you think you are getting is what you get.
