Another Ghost In The Frame

I had the camera breaded on a fire hydrant or something. That's my shadow next to that of the lamppost. The ghost... I can't explain.

Lobby

One of my favorite indoor spaces in Elgin. I can't resist returning again and again to try and capture the feeling of the place.6 sec. exposure without a tripod. Not bad, huh?

Pleasant Chat

I saw her again today. In a differnt park. Same clothes and bags. But she was awake and I stopped to chat with her. I asked her if she had enough to eat today as I realized I had less than $5 in my pocket. But she said she was fine and I make a few images of her before saying goodbye.

I don't know how it got there. Fun with pinholes, I guess.

I take every new thing to this place to shoot. I just love the sever lighting and all the details. My first try here with the pinhole camera was disappointing. So, once again, I return to the scene of the crime.

Medusa, Into The Light

Medusa, Into The Light

Shooting into the sun with the pinhole camera is always an adventure. It was not snowing. It was sunny and clear and warm. This is what happens when you point into the light. I guess the pinhole has no T* coating.

Distortion

It would be nice to have a curved hand rail on the front porch but, alas, there is none. The first frame shot on the pinhole camera, I think the film was not exactly lying flat. Didn't effect critical focus though.

The walk and steps are snow covered and there are no footprints. The house is being remodeled.

I got two images with his light band. Both about the same size. The two frames were on different parts of the roll. It is not a film registration problem. The image next to the banding is registered properly. Any ideas?

Al's

It's become an Elgin institution. It is a cozy and charming spot. And it is the kind of place where you can set up your new pinhole camera on a tripod by your table and nobody bats an eyelash.

I had lunch at Al's with a very good friend and we took my new pinhole camera out on the street to play with it.

Three Bells

Not the nautical time. As with so many other houses here, this one is chopped up into three apartments. Hence the three doorbell buttons.
