Today is the great worldwide pinhole day. So we have all been getting ready for it. Equipment made and tested. Everything is ready right... wrong... I woke up at 6:30 am, my time. I put the two dogs out (If it had been a normal day, my wife would have been up first and done that chore) since in my house you can't get out of bed after 6am without a cold nose on you. Then, of course, they didn't want to come inside again. They wanted to sniff the moring air. It was really just to annoy me I know. I finally got them inside and checked the computer for some things I'm messin with on ebay, Drank a cup of day old coffee while the dogs annoyed me again to be fed. So feed them I do. Meanwhile my wife is happily dozing off and on. Big dog in the kennel, small dog tucked away in my wife's room. The cold nose is on her ear this time. Into the old studio, converted to a lab, I go. I find my pinholer and add the retro along with a half dozen sheets of paper in film holders also to be exposed. Then it's load my junk into the car, the camera, the tripod, a case of film holders along with a sock I half filled with beans to use as a camera holder, the retro has no tripod hole. Oh god don't forget the coffee. Neighbors almost have me blocked in, tire needs air to hell with it. I managed to work the car out of the too tight driveway. Down the road I drive with all the other early Sunday morning drivers. Most are at least half asleep, and mostly likely headed home from a night of debauchery. Finally I'm at the park and ready to relax. What's this a ranger at the entrance. "What's up ranger?" "Park's closed." "What do you mean don't you know it's world wide pinhole day." "Not only did I not know it, I also wouldn't have cared, if I had. The park has been rented by a company for the day. It's their picnic." "I will only be ten minutes and they aren't here yet." "Nope, it would cost me my job." "Yeah right you supervisor is home asleep but okay." Off I go, in the cold I might add, in search of new places to shoot. I finally gave up and went back to another familar place. Pictures to follow if any came out.
