    Olbrich Gardens

    First roll through the restored Populist at Olbrich Gardens in Madison. Have to say those beads make composition more accurate and the new shutter is like butter, and so far, doesn't show up in the corners of the frame like the old one did occasionally.

    The pool in the Sunken Garden.

    One of the many water features.

    The Thai Temple framed in a small gap.

    A display in the tropical gardens around the Thai Temple. Always amazes me how they get these giant tropical plants to grow in Wisconsin. (They bring them from the greenhouse with fork lifts and replant them every year, I think. Still quite a trick)

    And a spray of lilies holding quite still.

    Another thing that amazes me is the people draped with high end SLR's who walk right by me when I'm doing this and no one ever asks what I'm doing.

    All with the Populist. .15mm pinhole 24mm from 24x36mm frame.

    Great! I really like the lily pond with the reflections from the sky and the depth going off into the upper right.

    ( pinholes and solargraphs mixed in among the rest)

    Yep, technology aint everything; who needs it when you can do this with a little cardboard box. These are just superb.

    Nick, I continue to admire your dedication to this one camera, the results are the proof. Well done.
