    This is the second time recently that you have submitted an image to MSA that my mind fills in detail... in the smaller version I see the general pattern of maria ( "the man in the moon" ) but then when I look at the large version I can't see it. Although this time I think it is really there in the tones. You had an image for "transport" with a flag hanging in a window at night, and I could not look at it and not see reddish color in the stripes. It was amazing. I even downloaded it and stuck a color picker into the stripe to see if there was any red.... there wasn't but still my eyes showed me what my brain expected to see... how strange.
    Well thank you so much for the compliment!

    I actually saw the same thing you saw, the man in the moon, and I did notice that when looking at it larger it seemed to blend in more, I also think this is partially an effect of gray tones and compression, kind of like, if you've ever scanned a piece of film, and when looking at it on the screen smaller, it looks clear, and then when you zoom in you can see white specs of dust, but for some reason they're completely invisible when viewed smaller, the computer or the eye must disregard some of the white "blank" space and admit more of the darker information, this is probably something that would aid in survival when identifying predators when we were still living in the wild perhaps?

    Thanks again for the complement, I also see what you mean about the flag.

    You know, I always mean to shoot something for the MSA, and often I do, but by the time I get around to developing it and either printing or scanning it, I'm often too late! But not this time. Here's a little something I did last weekend, with this theme in mind. I had some film in my Holga pinhole, had no idea what was in there, so thought I'd play around at one of my favourite temples in Kyoto (my avatar is from this location as well). I'm surprised it turned out as well as it did -- the film must of been in the camera for at least a year (maybe two or more) and I thought it was Tri-X but it turned out to be Acros. I was worried that I had underexposed it, but I guess not. This is a neg scan for now as I have yet to get into my new darkroom (hopefully soon!).

    Hi Rachelle,
    It's a very nice image! I like it. Did you make a double exposure or move the camera while the shutter was open?

    Thanks Bert! I guess it's more of an overlapping exposure where I moved the camera between shots. I have a number of shots like that on the roll, it's definitely something I'd like to play around more with.

    Vancouver Skyline. Taken from a friend's apartment near city hall.
    I'm finding this MSA topic, Near and Far, quite inspiring, so there should be more to come.

    Happy Solstice!

    Hi Everyone, Some great entries so far! A little more than a week to go, I hope we'll see a few more.

    I got out today to try my idea. Not sure if it worked or not, but I just got home with one paper negative and some film to develop. The one that might be the best is #25 on a roll bulk loaded for 24 exposures. I usually lose #26, so I'm hopeful, but it could be into the fog at the end of the roll... won't know until I develop it, probably tomorrow! Either way there will be something to try to print I went to a place where I left a solargraphy camera in February 2013, so I picked that up too....

    I shot a silly one on my 11x14 pinhole (which now has been re-designed with a real holder!) still looking for more obviously. But so glad to have even one.

    We'll see if it comes out, it's not "good" but proof I've finally met other LF'ers from APUG in real life.
