Balloons For Sale – Pinholeday contender 1

Photography

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.

Carnival Graveyard

It seems I am on a Long Beach, WA kick, so let’s keep going with it, shall we? Here is a pinhole image taken on Halloween of last year.¬†We stumbled on some old, broken down, carnival rides on the edge of town.

Over the summer I accumulated a series of self portraits in the forest. I kind of like how they turned out so this will be the next series of photos on my photoblog. This particular one was taken at Zig Zag Falls on July 4th.

Capital tourists

Along with my Zero 45, I brought my Terrapin Bijou with me on that pinhole adventure in Olympia with my fellow PNW pinhole enthusiasts. I had my Bijou loaded with Velvia from a previous pinhole adventure at a graveyard.

I caught this group just as a tour of the capitol building was underway. I love it when I can capture crowds in my pinhole photography. It’s hard to know what they will do in the seconds or even minutes that you are making an exposure which makes it fun to look a the final image when it comes back from the lab.
