    WPPD: Slow.

    Having recently dug out my little 6cm x 9cm MDF pinhole camera, I thought I would let it pass some photons. The decision was clinched when I realised that I have no 5x7 or 4x5 holders loaded with anything light sensitive at the moment, but I had a small 6x9 Graflex back with some paper in it.

    The rain held off yesterday luckily, but there was plenty of clound. A 20 minute session of the stone tortoise by our pond yielded some images

    F/185 0.2mm pinhole 37mm focal length. 20 minutes exposure onto Ilford MGIV VC paper negative (pre-flashed and through a yellow filter). Negative developed to completion and then scanned.

    I like it Evan, focus and no focus, slow, and fast. And Mr. Tortoise has a bemused expression on his face . . . .

    I like it too. Oddly enough, if it had been raining here, I was thinking of trying to photograph my wife's pet turtle ( sometimes he holds still for a very long time, almost like yours! )

    ( pinholes and solargraphs mixed in among the rest)
