© mylatehope.comYet another photo from the Enchanted Forest, a former kiddie amusement park in Hope Valley, RI. I would imagine that this axle supported a truck that was used to bring the rides to the park. What is the significance of 824? I love how the numbers jump out at you in this image.

This one goes out to Llorenç Rosanes, who masters strongly composed images of everyday life in black & white. I always enjoy his work and look forward to new photos of his appearing in my "Recent Photos from Contacts".

The Diana+'s center focus works well here also, drawing your eye to the subject and blurring the unimportant background.

Created using my Diana+ with ARISTA.EDU ULTRA B&W DX120 ISO 400 film. Negative scanned with my Epson v700 Perfection scanner. No digital manipulation used!

    I kneel down before you. Thank you very much for this great shot, would like to be able to have this hung on my house. You are an authentic artist of toy cameras. And as you said what is the significance of 824? I love the photos that you do not explain everything, and that leave to you space to think. And this is one of them. I enjoy the different tones between the ground, the axle, the fence, the trees ... I enjoy this composition closed at the top.
    Thank you very much again
