this blog is going away soon....

Yes, it's time to put this one to bed.
I have had it for about six years and it's time to do something else...I may be back with another blog...but it might just be time to not be on the web for a while.

I'll still build pinhole cameras and make photos. I can't stop doing that, but I need a rest from the web and the web needs a rest from me.

Take care everyone. 
Fall is coming!

did I loose my touch?

It's been a while since I posted anything...no excuse really except doing astronomy, staying up late and just not making many pinhole photos.

This one is from my yard, and as you can see, it looks like I have forgotten how to spool on 120 in the developing tank.  I thought it felt a little bit kinked on the reel, but then thought it felt okay...it was not okay, thus the uneven development you see above.

You would think that as many rolls and for as long as I've been dunking film in developer, I would not kink a roll...ha! I guess not.
Anyway, onward and forward to the next adventure!

Here's another shot from the same roll and it's okay-ish.

I made it while walking down  a street. 
Film was Ultrafine 100 dunked in a lovely brew of caffenol for 8 minutes. 
Oh and the camera was a Holga that I pulled the lens housing off of and converted to pinhole. It shoots really wide, which I like a lot.

Table Waiting

My favorite table in Menard, Texas.
Ojeda's Mexican food. 
Pinhole, paint can variety, paper caffenol...you know, dunk, dunk and go!

Salinas Pueblo Mission


Quarai Mission near Mountainair, NM. 
Delta 100 5 x 4 sheet film dunked in caffenol. It was a perfect day for pinhole! 
Plus I saw  a baby Bull-snake and some Yellow Rump Warblers. Oh and a ton of lizards!
