The Fallen

Camera: Zero 2000 Pinhole

Film: Kodak Portra 400

Exposure Time: 2.5 seconds

Location: Tulip Town, Skagit Valley, Wa

 

The rain was kind enough to subside long enough to enjoy an afternoon in the Skagit Valley tulip fields. It was still plenty muddy of course, boots where defiantly a requirement. The long puddles stretching down the rows of flowers acted as mirrors reflecting the vibrant colors of the tulips above them. I placed the pink tulip in the puddle, having picked it up from the mud somewhere along the way.

 

It was rather crowded along out in the fields, as it was the first weekend where the majority of the tulips fields where in bloom. You can’t tell from it in this photo, but their are hordes of people behind me. I am quite slow composing and metering my shots when i use my wooden pinhole camera and it was somewhat comical being out amongst the masses of digital cameras firing at will.
