    Wanted to see how this looked on film - bought it at an art festival a couple years ago.

    Linhof 5x7, 8-1/4" Verito at f/5.6, 30-second exposure on CSX green x-ray film, bigger than life-size:

    I like this image, and somehow the color enhances the subject for me. Did you do any split toning in your post processing?

    My rural state isn't under complete "lock down," mainly because it's already low density. I can drive 10 minutes and be somewhere that I see no one else all day. I've been taking advantage of that.🙂

    Today I returned to a bridge to make an 8x10 tin. Camera was a Kodak 2D, Voigtlander Petzval c.1862 12 inch. After taking a couple of 4x5 tests to nail down exposure I did an 8x10. I'm using a Stenopeika holder I received in January. I've had some inconsistent problems with it, mainly sometimes the dark slide scrapes the emulsion! This happened on the image below, which otherwise would have been quite nice. I took a close look at what is going on and think I found the reason. The slide is very stiff going in & out, and I think when being pushed in it sometimes bows in a little, catching the plate. There might be two solutions. First I'll try lubricating the slide grooves with something like furniture polish wax or teflon. If that doesn't work then I'll try using jewelers polish on a dremel to maybe remove a little bit of thickness. Otherwise this is a very solid and well built holder.

    Clean the slide with a little furniture polish, front, back, and edges. Rub pretty vigorously. They get a lot of gunk on them. Then rub the edge 1/2" or so all around with a dryer sheet. Again, rub pretty vigorously. You want to build up some heat and polishing action. I thought the dryer sheet thing was BS until I tried it. It's very convenient way to apply a small amount of conveniently anti-static lubricant.

    This sounds like a great theme, Peter-- and I love that you're working through a concept. I'm personally finding it difficult to engage much beyond the aesthetic level these days...

    Really like this image-- it has a pleasing balance and offers a full frame with lines that give a sense of depth. And though I'll be interested to see a new version when you get the holder fixed up, I have to admit that the damage to the image actually kind of resonates a bit with our current moment...

    I'm in Brooklyn, New York, so I've been limited to places I can get on foot. I've been enjoying taking along a little digital point-and-shoot on walks:
