This is 4x5 ortho film, which is very contrasty. next time I'll pre-flash it. (Oh, and my scanner died this weekend...so I got creative. Opened a white screen on the Kindle, placed film on top, shot a pic of the negative with my phone, the inverted it with in camera editing software. Hey, it works...kinda.)








This lady was so fun. She didn't speak English, but when I approached her, she immediately started posing. I couldn't help but laugh just a little at how happy and uninhibited she was. That's a breath of fresh air around here.





I also spent a lot of time experimenting with Harmon Direct Positive paper this weekend. 1. contrasty  2. slow  3. very fun

Come to India. I will pose for you. ;)

Bring FJ, too. :)

Jen Brimmage said...

Will you pose like this lady did?
If so, I will come.

I'll leave FJ in charge of flight plans, but I have a feeling he'll come up with some lame excuse to not go...like WORK or something like that. ;-)

Work? What's that? Can we meet half way? I always wanted to visit Murmamnsk. ;)

Thersites said...

You fun seekers are all alike...

*shakes head*

*puts nose back on grindstone...*

Russia works for me but can we visit Moscow?

Thersites said...

Only if we can stop in St. Petersburg, too. :)

Train would be the best way to go... ;)

Thersites said...

Yep...

Jen Brimmage said...

Great. Now I really want to go. :p

Thersites said...

It would be fun! Tell you what, if I ever hit the lotto, I'll invite you and your families to join me in Murmansk. There could be worse ways to waste a million!

nicrap said...

Jen Brimmage said...

Deal!!

Thersites said...

That would be a sight...

Perverts!

Hey, why suggest using a feather when you can have the whole chicken?

Jen Brimmage said...

This sounds like the beginning of a great story....

Jen Brimmage said...

Wait.
Do you even play the lotto?!

:p

Thersites said...

When the Powerball jackpot is big, I join the pool at work... About once a year. So there is a remote chance...

Jen Brimmage said...

Your chances are better than mine!

nicrap said...

I am single. Does it mean i will get expenses only for one? Not fair. :( ;)

Thersites said...

Well nicrap, who would you bring with you on a train trip through Russia? Would +7 be enough? I wouldn't want you to feel lonely. ;)

nicrap said...

Oh good. Now i can bring out my harem of ladies. ;)

I wouldn't want you to gain anything BUT a respectable reputation. ;)

Jen Brimmage said...

We must all pursue our Ate, be it real or merely an illusory "veil" (like mine) to hind under.
