    Monthly Shooting Assignment, July-Aug '14 - Public Spaces

    Hello again folks. Time for the newest MSA. The last one was terrific. Hope all of you can get rev'd up about the next one. Inspired by the Canada Day celebrations I attended yesterday, I've chosen "Public Spaces". Any place or space designed or designated for people to gather. Indoor or outdoor, full of people, or echoing emptily is up to you.
    I always love to hear the story behind your photo - how you shot it, why you chose it, where it is, so please include some details with your submission.
    Looking forward to some great entries!

    This brought an idea to mind immediately! It will be a big challenge and I'll have fun trying to do it.

    And we're off again! Nice theme. I like it that every MSA takes me in a complete different direction.

    Well, it's Gion Festival time here in Kyoto and August is so full of festivals around the country that there really isn't any excuse as to not participating this round! (not that I need to do festivals or anything...)

    Nice theme Lillian! I'm looking forward to what people will produce this round as well.

    Here's one. The fountain in Dupont Circle at night is a very popular hangout in the summer, with people sitting, walking, making out in the shadows, or even playing chess on the chess tables around the circle until the wee hours. This was roughly 10pm when I shot this. 1 minute 30 seconds was the exposure I think. May have been just 45 seconds. Regardless, long exposure.

    Starbucks Coffee, Dupont Circle. Where most of the folks retreat when they get too hot hanging out around the fountain. I think of this as being "public" because the windows there at the corner of the building are almost like a fishbowl and people are walking past at all hours, staring in at those inside, and those inside are watching the humanity flow by outside.

    Thank you for getting us off to a great start, Flying Camera. I like them both, but the Starbuck's one edges in front, I think. I would certainly consider this type of commercial space, as public. Lots of people in and out all day, as well as the fishbowl aspect.

    Darn, I literally was going to shoot a Starbucks image tomorrow afternoon! Gah!!! Now I won't look original anymore! Lol.

    Day before yesterday we took our daughter to summer camp. This is the campfire circle they will all gather around each night to sing and tell stories. Their tent cabins are in the background through the forest.



    Coffee can pinhole paper negative, in this scan and small jpeg it is hard to see there are neat almost zone plate specular effects in the trees.

    I'm also working on something else for this MSA...

    A Rolleiflex triptych panorama. Ektar 100, roughly 45 seconds per frame.
