A Moment in Motion.
This black and white photograph of South Falls at Silver Falls State Park, Oregon, was taken with an old 120mm film box camera converted to pinhole on a cold and blustery November day.
Just imagine the deafening roar of rain swollen Silver Creek plunging headlong over the cliff into the deep pool below…
The frothing spray coming off the falls made it necessary to hold an umbrella over the camera for the duration of the various exposures which averaged about 8 seconds, and by the time the photo expedition was over we were thoroughly cold and damp and most ready for hot chocolate and coffee around the fire.
It’s an interesting technique, this pinhole, and I should do more of it. Certainly not great for detail, but exposing the film directly to the elements does seem to capture a certain something, an impression if you will.
