    Thanks Stone! I hope you do though!

    I was intentionally overdoing the pinhole features... so to me it's almost a caricature of a pinhole photo and a bit gimmicky. Though it was definitely fun to make. Instant film pinhole is very fun.

    I've got three other traditional b/w film shots so far to develop and print and if any come out well I'm hoping to submit another MSA.

    This has been really fun, it's almost like having a "background theme" for a couple months. I usually have a couple themes running through my photos at any particular time, but this one has been great because it got me out to do something I normally wouldn't try. It has been very interesting to pay attention to the shadows and light in the middle of the day. Also the air looking toward the horizon has a different character at noon and even if I don't catch it for MSA I'll be aware of it from now on.

    Show us what ya got, Stone!
    Ugh, I wish! Noon is not my friend... haha, that's when I wake up... LOL I am taking my girlfriend and her daughter to the Big E this weekend (a giant New England fair event) so maybe I can snag a shot then, but I doubt I'll be "allowed" to bring along the 4x5... so what's the point... LOL

    Stone you crack me up. We are almost opposites... I'm usually up before the sun rises, and already tired from working all morning by noon!

    Well I've had a setback. I had 4 different noon shots that I was really looking forward to seeing, and I developed my film this morning. They were all shot with a 55mm micro AIS and half way through the roll I noticed the DOF preview was slow to respond. They are all totally blown out. I've had a feeling about this lens for a while but now the blades must be really sticking badly. 5 of the shots were 1/2s exposures with a blue filter at F/22, and the overexposure is so extreme that it bleeds over to other frames... I wonder how open it was for 1/2 second in full sun noon! There are also 5 perfectly exposed frames on the roll from using a different lens, but those were not for high noon MSA. There is only one MSA shot that looks like it might be printable, maybe, with difficulty ( only about 2 or 3 stops overexposed )

    I might try again with another lens if I can find time for it. I like the idea I was aiming for.

    Ha ha, well fortunately today I had to get up early because my girlfriend slept over and she goes off to work very very early so I made it a point to get up and get dressed and be ready and so I'm ready to shoot now I just have to wait another two hours... Lol

    High Noon - the series: Dogde or Burn!

    Well,
    I had a shoot-out at high noon and was able to fire 36 shots before I forgot to dodge the bullets and got burned:

    (Nikon FM3a with 45 mm f/2.8P pancake lens, Fuji NPS 160 expired)

    Side note: almost all images on this roll are effected like this. The lab says its a defect of the film/emulsion itself (the emulsion was sticky and got ripped while winding the film), but I'm not sure it if is a developing defect or not ... all the other films came out all right.

    Another September image for "High Noon".
    2 weeks camping in September, in mostly sunny weather, gave me the chance to work on this, when I wasn't swimming or basking in the sun.

    Well, we're only a bit over half way through the current MSA period. Plenty of time left! Surely, with all the talent hanging out at this site there must be at least a few others out there who will enter the fray...?!

    Thanks to Bert for being a good sport and sharing his with us even though there was a development problem. I learned something from his example. My lens malfunctioned and the aperture was not closing down all the way... my shots are all very overexposed, but I am printing a few anyway. Noon out on the pasture here:

    I like those sparkles... almost a zone plate kind of glow to them. Nice!

    The fastest cat of the west @ High Noon

    Since pinhole seems to rule within this assignment - and this role of film did not have developing issues (see my previous post #25) - I like to present my second shot of the fastest cat of the West at High Noon. He can move his head faster than the shutter of my camera.
