Marilyn

marilyn-smaller

Nicotine and objectification. What could be more American? Oh wait, this part is usually a photography truism.

An interesting way to observe people is to study the space they occupy. This is from a friend’s desk. The items were actually props for an art project. Moments later (or before- I just developed this on Monday but I shot it more than a month ago, so I really have no idea), I stepped on a bowl of watercolor paint and spilled it on her carpet.

Agfapan APX400 in my K1000, Clayton F76+ diluted 1+19 with the time slightly reduced to decrease contrast. Intended as an experiment in making more scannable negatives.

    hey no worries i like coming to visit your blog, you give my brain a work out for trying new camera ideas 🙂
    i would love to take my camera everywhere i go, espically when i’m driving home from work; i see the most amazing & photogenic things along the way, but my camera is too big for my handbag & rather heavy (for me)
    how’s your camera situation going(?)
