    Afternoon in the Yard

    This old patio chair belonged to my folks, it dates back to the early 1960s. 5 minutes exposure.

    1st one shows full range of tones, black white and mid. You've got the exposure perfect.

    I like the lock on the man cave door. Those old patio chairs were probably the most comfortable ever; beats the heck out of those plastic jobs. Excellent photography as always Joe.

    Nice tonal range, and sharp for pinhole. I like your tests.

    Very observant, Marv. I've been meaning to make a real handle and latch for the door, but sliding a rock around with my feet seems to do just as well.

    You're right about the chairs, they are very comfortable. Originally painted yellow, my Dad painted them dark green years ago, but are now scratched and peeling.

    One detail nobody mentioned is on the left side of the shed, a little robot made by my grandson, from metal cans and scraps. Perhaps a picture of it is worth doing in the future.

    It's fun to find interesting compositions in an otherwise very ordinary setting, like one's junky yard.

    Thanks also to everyone else for your kind comments.

    Are this straight or preflashed images with the DPP?

    These were preflashed. Using my setup, 3.5 seconds, as compared to 8 seconds for grade 2 RC paper negatives. So, roughly half the preflash exposure of negative paper.

    Joe, these pictures are fantastic. Congratulations, full tonality with DPP. Excellent work! My favorite is the picture with the two chairs.
