    Getting back to speed with the can cameras

    I went through my sheet film inventory and found a bunch of old, old film. This is an attempt to get back into my popcorn tin cameras with some really big images to come before too long. It was cold on Saturday, and I lost my enthusiasm in the wind, but here is one result.

    I need to find some film that will resolve the street sign - it has been modified to read 'BLIND ERECTION 200 FEET'. Maybe some chrome film in the tin can.

    That's pretty wonky Earl, I like it. That straight stretch of boulevard up the middle really anchors the bent parts, which almost sets off a bit of vertigo.

    I like it too. 6-1/4 x 10 is a nice format!
    I'll be loading all the cans for WPPD at the end of the month!
