~ Rock the Cradle (Slouching Towards San Francisco)

    beyond the ken
    of yeats’ widening gyre
    indifferent to all
    but lightning’s fiery ire:
    sequoia sempervirens.

    embraced by infinite silence
    (generations come into
    & pass out of existence)
    is it the second coming,
    or merely the first,
    to which they aspire?

    a meditation upon
    “the second coming,”
    by william butler yeats

    amid the redwoods
    of humboldt county,
    northern california
    while on a recent trip
    down highway 1
    to san Francisco

      I just read an article on how to "simulate pinhole photography in photoshop". The result was dark, out of focus, heavily vignetted, contrasty, and black&white. In my search for counter-examples, it was great discovering your image which is counter to almost all the points/steps of this dumb article.

      Simply stunning. Really like the way your pinhole camera captured the grander of the giant redwood trees.
