Well thank you so much for the compliment!

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!).

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.
Thanks Lilly and Rachelle! Still more than a month to go!
Here's another Holga pinhole for near and far.
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....
Provia 100F 6x7 shot with RB67 with 90mm KL.
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. :)
