This past week my classes i teach revolved around the camera obscura, with a bit of history, videos, and construction, and testing of different types. It concluded with loading up some paper into tins for pinhole photography this coming week. Should be fun and interesting even though it's not going to be done officially today on Sunday. Hope everyone gets some cool results!
Took the Zero Image to a number of old cabins and barns. Shot some at 6x9 in B&W and a roll of Ektar at 6X6. Missed the # 1 on the Ektar load so only shot 11 of the 12 in color. Hope to see what they look like soon.
A change of plans saw me and the trusty Zero Image 6x9 (as 6x6) take an up-close-and-personal view of what I now regard as a haunted 1890s ruined home — it has to be haunted for a ruined door to close shut without it being touched! I fumbled with the first exposure in a musty, but artfully surrealist-painted room while the remains of a fire smoked in a nearby room, eventually lining up, metering making three shots before skidaddling out of the place to photograph less troubling subjects around outside the house, like an unusual wattle-and-daub stables with the corpses of rodents hanging from the ceiling. Roll isn't finished yet but should fix that this week.

A comfort zone is a wonderful place. But nothing ever grows there.
Took the ZeroImage 612F out today on a walk around downtown Calgary. Last shot was of my wife's cappuccino and with Velvia 50 it took 3.5 minutes to expose. The coffee got gold, but the wife didn't complain, she's the best!
