Re: Weeping Willow, Hollow Tree Road

Correct Gary. You head out past Hayes/Hamilton/Ouse and there is a little gravel road that juts off to the North and cuts through the pastures into Bothwell.

Lulu

Heres a phone picture of an outtake. This one would have been a cracker had I taken into account that the thin alumimium does not displace as much of the silver bath as a thicker piece of glass, so a long strip down the right hand side did not make it into the silver nitrate for sensitization. https...

For Sale: RealitySoSubtle 6x17 panoramic pinhole camera

At the risk of a laugh, no this was not just a quick passing fad but I'd like to trade this in for a pinhole camera of a smaller format. This is a lot of fun.
