the pumpkin patch by pinhole

I'm moving this one up to the front of my stream to help bring attention to a fabulous low-fi photography magazine called Light Leaks. I've been reading the magazine for about a year and a half, and have made several submissions to their "themes". About a year ago I was contacted by the supervising editor and asked if I was interested in being one of the "featured artists" for a future pinhole issue.


My answer, of course, was a resounding YES.


One year later finds me in a state of very excited anticipation regarding Issue 15 - The Pinhole Issue. Especially when I received another email - this one letting me know that one of my images would actually be on the cover. I think I squealed like a little girl that night.


I wanted to wait to share this image again until I actually had the magazine in my hands (it went to print late last week), but since I'm leaving tomorrow on a short vacation (also terribly exciting - will be seeing U2 in concert for the first time!), it will be at least Thursday before I am able to check my mailbox again, and I just couldn't wait that long. So some of you will be seeing this issue long before I do, and if you do - tell me how things are looking. :-)


Oh, and if you visit Light Leaks' Twitter site, you'll find a sneak peak of the cover on their background.




Original post:


Last week on the way home from work I took a quick side trip out the the"original" pumpkin patch on Sauvie's Island. The road out to the patch was wet and muddy with another storm threatening to move in above. Needless to say, I was the only one out there... which was perfect. I found a pumpkin to hold and set up my pinhole for a two minute exposure, then raced out in front of it and waited. It's a good thing it wasn't a longer exposure... halfway back to my car the skies opened up and the deluge began! I left Sauvie's Island wet but happy.


Taken with my Zero Image, with film that was later cross processed.
