Saturday

Nothing less than perfect.

Last week I took two rolls of film in for developing. One roll included the pics from my last post and the other was from my little wooden pinhole camera. I've had some brilliant results from this camera and I've had some disastrous ones. But all were interesting to me.

When I went in to collect the prints the man there handed me one envelope and one set of negs. He had deemed the other fit for the garbage. I asked him where the pinhole roll was and he told me they were blurry and horrible. Nothing good there, he said. I had to go behind the counter where a girl reluctantly scanned the negatives and confirm that yes, I wanted all of them printed. They both looked bemused..








This last one I adore. It's a ship. A ship in night waters for Fred...

I love these photos even more because there's a story behind it. And this also add confirmation to my theory that beauty is relative, art even more so: who really can judge what is a great image and what is not? I like that you are stubborn too, well done. The last image is magic!
ps I found you through Nancy's blog :)

Hi, I've just found your blog and I'm so glad I did!
I know how it's like to fight with the photolab-guys, they won't even cross-process slide film for me, they think it "damages the equipment". So sad we have to deal with such incompetent people to pursue a hobby.
You're so lucky to be given such a wonderful gift as a wooden, handmade pinhole camera!
I love these pictures and the ones in the other posts, I'm definitely following!
Have a great weekend!
