This is one of my pinhole photographs. The camera is made from a Quaker Oatmeal box (which gives it the curved effect). The aperture (the hole) is made into an Arizona Ice Tea can. The neg. is 5x7 and you must use contact printing. All I do is put the neg. on top of an undeveloped piece of paper, put a sheet of glass over it and shine a 15wat bulb over it for about 4 seconds. All the darkroom work is done in my bathroom.
This is a portrait of myself sitting on my doorstep.
This be my last post for a while as I am heading for Nepal in about three days. My good friend who just turned thirty lives up there for 3 to 4 months a year. His parents are going to go visit him and they asked me to tag along. We will be visiting Katmandhu, as well as Lukla, the first base cap.
We will stay with Nepali friends in there huts, visit a friend who is a monk, and moving far away from the tourist experience. This will be spiritual journey for myself as well as a chance to take photos of something other my my back yard!
I wish you happy holidays and a very happy new year!
(oh yes, C&C please!)
