Photo of the Week

Well, after posting my 52 create pinhole camera, I promised a pinhole picture for the photo of the week.  Unfortunately, none of the pictures turned out.  All three were completely blank which leads me to believe that my safe light was not in fact safe.  A camera store told me I could simply use a red light bulb from the hardware store, but seeing as all three pictures were completely white, and I used exposures varying from 30 seconds to 3 minutes, I think the light was the culprit.  I’ll try again soon.

So instead I bring you the picture above.  It was taken during the Fete des Vendanges (harvest festival) in Montmartre Paris.  This was a parade that ran up the hill and people gave out free wine as the parade marched by.  These Alpenhorn players were indeed in a marching band (it reminds me of the Woody Allen Sketch where he laments being in a marching band as a child as he was a cello player…).  Every block or so they would stop walking and put down there horns to play.  Quite the festival and if you are ever in Paris in the fall, it is an event you don’t want to miss.

Back to the details… Taken with my Voigtlander Bessa R using Fuji Neopan 400.  I think the lens was my 35mm skopar, but it could also have been the Jupiter 8, doesn’t really matter now does it? Developed in D76 and scanned.
