    Instant pinhole vacation snapshots! Part II

    I always come home from vacation with a little album of instant film pinholes. Just playing and the horizons are tilted this way and that, but here are 8 from about 20 I made on our recent vacation to Washington and Idaho.

    Images 5-8:

    The forest around the lake is mostly larch, pine and fir, but there are some patches of deciduous trees too:

    Looking along the lake shore:

    There is a ghost dog on the rock, waiting for me to throw a stick:

    Near Madras in Oregon we always stop at a marker that points to a number of volcanic mountains. My family tried to keep Mango still but for a portrait but it was a lost cause, she looks like a chihuahua:

    Nice images, Ned. Interesting color; any idea what caused it?

    Hi Barry, the Fuji FP-100c always has a strong blue cast when used outdoors... I've never tried to correct it, just kind of go with it.

    The second one above, with the log and the flare has an odd look to it. I don't know why it looks like that, but there was some smoke from a forest fire in the air, and that might have been part of it. Almost reminds me of an old polaroid that has faded over time...

    Hi Ned, yes the second one is very interesting. I was going to comment on the ?Newton Rings-type effect, but I haven't a clue what it really is or what might have caused it. Very interesting, though. I haven't ever used colour instant film, so their casts are a mystery to me. Really nice work though.

    Nicely done. The blue cast is probably due to long exposure times.
    The world is not black and white. It often looks good in grayscale, though.

    Thanks Don!

    I got my pigments and AFC and now only need a few more things before I'm going to try that gelatin pigment process. All I need is a bottle of hydrogen peroxide and some thick glass. I'm going to start testing with 5x7 and see how it goes. If all goes well I'll probably contact you in a couple months.
