Don't ask me how this happened. My husband and I went to the park yesterday in Springfield. I braved the sub-zero temps (at 1:30, it was still -15F) and I took a two second exposure of one of the lagoons. You know the drill...one one thousand, two one thousand and I slid the magnet back into place. I *did* leave the pinhole truck in the van that afternoon in the freezing cold...but after I brought it inside the house after work, I waited a couple of hours with the tin on the kitchen table, waiting for it to thaw out. The paper was room temp by the time I got around to dipping in my tray of Dektol in the basement bathroom (my makeshift darkroom). The safe light was on, no light leaks. I even fixed that nasty light leak that was obscuring 1/2 the photographs I had taken earlier this month.
And now this?
And that's the positive version - which I inverted in Photoshop as I've not yet quite figured out how to do a contact print with no enlarger light...although I do have a small LED flash light that I'm thinking about using and will try that out this weekend. (Any other suggestions would be kindly appreciated.)
I have no clue what happened...and can this be explained?
