As I was driving home, I was listening to a CD of some of my favorite songs. One lyric in particular caught my attention, and I had a perfect image in mind that included magnetic poetry spelling out the lyric. Then I got home and started pawing through my words, and one of the ones I needed was not there. Boo.
Matt's pinhole camera photos inspired me to play around a little more with the pinhole attachment for my camera. Other than changing this to black and white, this photo is straight out of the camera. I need to play around with the attachment some day when it's still light outside!
Also, I think I may have some dead pixels...uh-oh...time to start saving for a new camera!
Eric and I went to the library in Ithaca today. It's got a pretty good selection of photography books and an enormous collection of graphic novels. Eric also appreciates their great CD collection. We ended up with a giant stack of stuff, all of which we can return here in Owego when we're finished.
One of the great things about living in Owego and working at the library in Binghamton--I've got library cards for two different library systems!
(Friday, 21 January 2011) Put some Sepia Type 100 film in my Automatic 100 at lunch time. It's been awhile since I used Sepia and couldn't remember if I set the camera to 300 or 3000 speed (film is 1500 iso). Tried 3K out with meter all the way to light and took this shot out my den window.

(Monday, 17 January 2011) Cameras in tow, I decided to conquer one of my fears—I walked out onto the frozen lake! Figured nearing the end of my first roll of film in the Black Slim Devil was a good motivator.
Used my Canon 9000f to scan the negative. Still getting the hang of scanning film…

I received this miniature bowling set in my New Year's cracker a year or two ago, and I finally pulled it out of its tiny package this evening. I tried to bowl, but the ball is pitiful in comparison to the pins, so I was successful only in nudging one of the pins to the side.
(Sunday, 9 January 2011) Read that applying heat to a developing PX70 shot can help the colors pop. Thought I'd test it out with some test film. These erasers were the most colorful objects I could find at the moment. Used a hair dryer to heat this up for about 3 minutes.
