Antonio,

Dark is not very precise - the couple remains discernible without attaining the major focus, as I intended.

Best regards,
Michael

All great pictures in this thread so far, I am really enjoying them. Am I allowed to play also?

Am I a party pooper? I knew that I should have stayed away.

Camera extension was actually a curse for the Weyba Bridge #5 exposure. What I needed was strong bellows compression to get a 121mm lens close enough to the film to get infinity focus. To do this I had to unhook the lens board from the vertical guides of the front standard, shove it backwards, then lock it down so it was centred and parallel to the ground glass. Checking image coverage involved walking back and forth to look at the ground glass through the lens and to look at the lens past the corner of the ground glass. Even for view camera work this was a slow procees. Fortunately the subject wasn't going to die, deteriorate, or run away inside ten minutes.

I feel better that you admit that this system was problematic! I was wondering and was going to set up my own 8x10 with extension and see what I could focus on!

Was the digital image we see here derived from one done by scanning the negative or the print that you describe?

Thanks.

The image of Weyba Bridge #5 on your monitor is the result of a scan of a positive image on photographic paper. Because the positive was made via contact exposure with a 8" x 10" negative it comes out small enough to fit on my cheap ($49!) A4 flat bed scanner. I used a free version of Photoshop 7 I got years ago to massage the electronic file so that the picture on my monitor looked like the actual photograph held up next to it. Then I cast it into cyberspace.

Nicolas,

Using the water a mirror is a clever idea.

An urban view:

Michael,

The repeats and the strict orthogonality give the impression of time travel. You are not only having us "looking beyond" now, but also actually taking us there!

I have learned something here!

And, in doing so, he misses (at least for the moment) the sight of the tram car leaning at a curious angle!

What a fine picture and all for the benefit of anyone who just has to arrive!
