This tree came from World Wide Pinhole day, while I was out on a hike with some friends in OP Schnabel Park.
In fact. Chris Fecio got an awesome 4×5 shot of the tree growing out of the rocks. I love trees like this, considering how big of a struggle this tree has to get all the nutrients it needs while growing out of a boulder.
This past weekend was World Pinhole Day, a holiday I have enjoyed shooting many times before, and this year was no exception.
I had some friends come into town, so on Pinhole’s Day Eve we headed down town to go on a night time photowalk and I setup a tripod with my Diana Multi Pinhole and a roll of 100 speed Kodak Ektar. I decided to try and shoot the lights of downtown right as a storm was going in, there was all this amazing lighting on this 32 minute exposure.
Coincidentally, there was a parade as part of Fiesta going on just a few blocks away, then the thunder and lightning struck. It started pouring, everyone panicked and left the parade. I had just enough time to get to shelter and setup the tripod for a new photograph, the one you see above.
Unfortunately in my panic to get out of the rain, I failed to notice that my pinhole had switched to multiple apertures.
This is 32 minutes of rain, lightning and people stuck in traffic as they try to leave downtown San Antonio. On 3 apertures.
I love this photograph even though it is an accident. I love the motion from the traffic lights as people try to get away. I also really enjoy the look of the sky in this shot.
I will need to take my pinhole out at night more often.
Finally have all of the film back from shooting March of Film.
March of Film is a project organized by myself and my friend Amanda Potter.
With this project, we challenged photographers to Select from a handful of themes, interpret and then photograph them and them submit them to our Flickr group.
This Weeks Happy Tree Tuesday comes from OP Schnabel Park in San Antonio. I have actually never really explored this park before, but when on a Hike through it with my Yashica ME-1 and explored the cliffs for a bit that are back in there.
There are some really neat spots back in there, and I definitely think I am going to load up my pinhole camera and give it a good ride on my bike in the next few weeks.
Shot this a few weeks ago on a walk with my Holga 135.
I really like how stunted this tree looks and water what happened to it to make it curve into the ground like this.
Shot this With the Holga 135 on Kodak Portra.
