Moriarty, New Mexico


 Cigar Box pinhole image of an old truck stop on route 66. Moriarty, New Mexico  January 11, 2022

The cigar box is very thin, so this gives a very wide view of the scenery. Propped it up on the truck bumper as I have no tripod for it. Works fine as long as the Earth doesn't move...you know.

 From July to November.

The sun lefts its mark during this pinhole exposure of several months.

Tool Room

 Back in July, I was an artist in residence for a couple of days at Russell Farm Art Center in Burleson, Texas.  I did pinhole practice here, which is the wood carving room of the late artist Charlie Boren. 

This is the wall of wood carving tools that surrounded me while I worked developing pinhole photos with caffenol during that time. It was quite a place and really had the spirit of Charlie here.

there is no Phoenix, but something arose from the ashes

 catchy title eh?

there was walking in the fall tinted forest with a pinhole camera.

Not  promising I'm back, but there is hope I will return.

 I imagine myself inside my pinhole camera...

yes, I'm still here doing pinhole...

 A couple of pinhole test shots from Monday.

The upper right photo was made with a Zero Image multi format camera and Harman Direct Positve paper dunked in caffenol and the lower left one was made in an Ilford 4 x 5 obscura camera with harman paper as well.

My fixer was kaput, thus the pink tinge, so I had to refix to get them looking nice and presentable.

I really like having an almost instant photo using the Harman Direct Positive paper and caffenol.

These trees are handy models that live and pose in my back yard.

In a couple of months I'll be going to Russell Farms art center in Burleson, Texas (near Fort Worth) to do some pinhole work and then go back in November for a lecture and pop up show. It's always fun to do this type of thing and spread the pinhole fun!
