Balloons For Sale – Pinholeday contender 1


I developed and scanned the photos I took on Pinholeday, and now I have to choose one to post to the gallery. This is difficult. There are 3 photos from the roll that I really like. There is one that I like the best. Usually I am “go with your gut” kind of person, but this time I think I will ruminate on it for a couple of weeks. I have until the end of the month to post.

In the meantime, I will use the 3 images as my photoblog images for May.

This one was taken at the wonderful Parc de la Ciutadella and this particular shot is of the Arc de Triomf.

It just so happens that this photo was in Flickr Explore yesterday (It’s dropped out today, for some reason). It’s always a nice ego boost when this happens. It’s also really cool to see film/pinhole photography in Explore.


Geeky Bits:
Camera: Terrapin Bijou, Incher configureation (25.4mm)
Film: Ektar 100
Exposure time: >5 seconds

  1. Cool shot! I love those Ektar colors! Congrats on Explore!! Depending on the ranking, your picture can drop in and out of Explore because people will always continue to favorite your picture and others. I’ve had 35 or more photos to hit the Explore page, but only 14 remain in Explore at the moment. The higher the ranking, the more likely your picture remains in the top 500 pictures for that particular day. My highest showing was #18. I bet if I checked, it would probably be lower today.
