Total Wash Out........

Rained out for the second year in a row on Pinhole Day.....And my First try of the Solargram seems to have failed.......

Any suggestions from Solargram Experts out there as to what's going on here?

UPDATE:  I've cut away the paper around the Pinhole, thinking that it might have caused the lines as the paper expended when it got wet.........

I'll put it back out for a two week test and see what happens......

Lost Land J33 Camera

Love this camera.  Too bad I can't get film for it!

In "like new" condition, as my Father carefully packed it away in its original box after every use.

It's Polaroid Week!

A Week now and A Week in the Fall.  I don't have a functioning Polaroid, but I have fond memories of the Family Photos take with my Father's J33 Land Camera.

And I do Promote All Things Film!

Saturdays Online: Getting Ready for World Wide Pinhole Day

Getting Ready for April 26th Worldwide Pinhole Day.

We just got an Ilford Camera Obscura to take out for WWPH Day.  Shoots 4X5 paper or film.  But you need to carry a changing bag if you want to do multiple shots.

And there are many inexpensive options like the Pinhole Paint cans:

And check out many build it your self & other options here @ Lomography

But maybe this is a bit extreme, and I don't recommend it.  Surprising the response he did (or rather didn't) get.

Saturdays Online: How Long is Too Long?

As I prepare to set out more Solargrams for the Summer/Fall,

I am pondering this question:  How Long an Exposure is Too Long?  How about a 1000 year exposure?  The question is who will be around that cares or even remembers?  Although, placing it on a University Campus does improve the chances of survival.

But this is not the artists first longterm work, as Mr Keats continues his habit of long exposures with an earlier (and still ongoing) project in Berlin.  Read more about 100 Cameras for 100 Years.

Happy Easter!

This lovely houseplant has bloomed this winter and again last week. A New Guinea Impatiens given to me by a friend.  It loves my Living Room Window, and is thriving.
