The vistas on the Isle of Skye are spectacular and I have taken a couple of series that I want to develop into panoramas, but until then am posting this photo from today.
It was great to explore and photograph Waverley Station. It is nearly impossible to capture the entire complex from ground level. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I can do some outside shots. This series is of the main terminal area showing tracks 14 – 18.
While this photo was taken on September 2, local time, it was almost still the 1st at home.
I do like to take railroad photos! Most are not particularly interesting to the general public, but there is a lot of joy just being there and taking them. This is of the Enola Yard on the Susquehanna River across from Harrisburg, PA.
I just got my first Holga plastic camera. It is a pinhole (no lens), panoramic camera using medium format 120 film – for this post I used black and white film which I processed myself and scanned. If you don’t know what Holga cameras are, please Google them, or here is a Wikipedia link:
The second photograph was lots of fun, it is a multiple exposure, and with film you don’t know what you have until you develop it, living on the edge in the digital age.
This is a photograph I took with a panoramic 120 film back on a Graflex camera. The negative for this photograph was approximately 2.25 x 6.5 inches and vertical. I cropped as you can see two images out of the original and presented those both vertically and horizontally.
Burnside’s Bridge from the other end.
Yes, it is catchup time…
This bridge is one of the most recognizable battlefield structures of the American Civil War. I wanted to do a little something different with it and a number of years ago photographed it through a pinhole. This is fun photography!
Here is a couple other unusual panoramic photos. These are from a small Sony camera I have that has a panoramic setting. Sometimes I just play with this interesting feature.
The above photo I took as I walked down a trail in the woods with the camera set on the panoramic mode. Below, it is fun to take photo of movement as you pan, in this case one of the horses creates a second head as he moves side to side.
This little camera I think will be a lot of fun and wanted to share a couple of the first photos I took with it.
You have to work a little on technique, watch you hand, your hat and make sure you get it to go all the way around.
This photo of Shrimp Boats in Brunswick, Ga shows actually a little over 360 degrees. Still have to work on composition…
