I just realized that the last 8 photos I loaded to JPG are from digital cameras. Shame on me! So, for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day, I am loading an image captured using my Diana+ with the Pinhole feature.

For extra credit, I used 20 year expired AGFA RS100 slide film and I had the lab cross process it with C41 chemicals. My new lab is Renaissance Creative Imagingand I highly recommend them if you are in the RI area.

Since this is a pinhole shot, I had to keep the shutter open for 3 seconds. Amber captured me using this makeshift monopod to keep the plastic camera steady.

This drawbridge over the Seekonk River has been stuck in the "up" position for as long as I care to remember. I guess it's appropriate that the East Side of Providence has a "stuck up" bridge (a little RI humor).

Created using my Diana+ using the pinhole feature with expired AGFA RS100 slide film, cross processed with C41. Negative scanned with my Epson v700 Perfection scanner. No digital manipulation used!

    Hard and metallic, yet made soft enough...and awesome colours: all the blues and greens blend and the light transparent pink veil covering it all.... sublime...
