Well, this is my best shot so far. Was on my way home from some night photography with my cousins and did it when waiting for the bus.
Nikon F4, Fujicolor C200 at rated speed, 30 second shutter time, 50mm 1:1.8 AI-S Nikkor. Straight scan of print into Microsoft Paint.

Hi Ned,
It looks like a potential winner for this MSA! It's a great image, worthy of Fox Talbot IMHO.

But seriously, I think it's a great image. Make a nice Gum print or Bromoil print with this negative and it would be a perfect Pictorialism style image.
(I'm into carbon printing right now)

BTW: it is nice to see you actually made a shot with a camera we discussed about. I'm still in the thinking-and-collecting-materials-stage. But this image is a good inspiration for me to put some real effort into this project.
BTW2: paper negatives are real fun to do, isn't it?

Bert from Holland


This is something different for me, but when I saw this negative I decided it was worth making a print. Some time ago Bert and I chatted about building a fixed focus camera. I built a 5x7 prototype that I wasn't happy with, and I had this 1914 lens reserved for 8x10. This weekend I finally made the bigger camera and this picture was the first. I went to this place I'd been eyeing for MSA and was supposed to remove the front lens element before making the exposure, but I forgot, so it was focused at about 3 or 4 feet! But honestly I think I like this result better than the photo I was trying to make. It is a contact print from a paper negative.

Interesting, highway or traintrack bridge?
Hi Stone, it's a highway. Underneath is an old movable trestle railroad bridge that hasn't been used in many years, but it isn't visible in this picture.. or visible only as a subconscious hint!

Hi Bert, paper negatives are very fun! I use them a lot!

Airports in France (Lyon) are somehow elegant:

Surprised with all the security, you were even able to take this.

que? I take photos in airports (http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=airport&w=24125157%40N00&s=rec) regularly. None of those were in the MSA period though.

Anyway, I've shot one for this assignment and (I think) developed it. Should make its way through the scan queue this week...

In America, many "transportation" areas are now off limits to cameras, in the subway systems sometimes I get in trouble for aiming my camera at the TUNNEL area because I might "gleam some way of doing harm" with my photo that could get into the hands of terrorists or some such nonsense...

Question: are we permitted multiple submissions? Or just the one?

Edit: triptychs?

Polyglot, great car! Yes, please make multiple posts, and dip/trip/or higher/tychs are welcome.

Also want to thank: NedL for his pinhole. Hope to see more from this camera.
- Copyhat for the colour night shot with the light trails.
- Heinz for his airport shot. It's cool that so many of you are including more than one form of transport.
- Bertus for the lovely bike on a boat shots. I love the line the handlebars make in the first one.

There hadn't been many posts to the MSA since the initial flurry. Glad to see them showing up. Go ahead, make my choice of a winner even tougher and post more.

Sly, I've actually shot images for this assignment! Almost an entire roll. I just need to develop and scan it. Soon. Hopefully I'll have something worth submitting.

Hi Sly and everyone,

That last one was not actually a pinhole, just an out of focus "accident".
This one is pinhole!

Thanks Bert! It's Fuji instant film, which tends to have a blue cast... although there was a lot of blue in the sky and subject too!

Nice, I've been meaning to take a shot like this of all the new citibank bicycles in NYC but haven't been there lately. Good job.
