There’s nothing quite like this artistic geometry. Magnificent.
ain’t it the truth
When I was at Fernhill Park a couple months back for a soccer game, I noticed that the playground had an old style metal merry-go-round. I made a mental note to bring the pinhole with me on my next visit because proper merry-go-rounds are going extinct.
The one at the park down the street from our house was removed and I asked Portland Parks & Rec why and their response was it was too old and unsafe. I asked if they’d be replacing it and they said they would…with a new “safe” model. One of those models was already installed at the other park close to our house, and let me tell you - it is neither exciting nor fun.
It took a couple tries - the weather wasn’t cooperating and we kept having gloriously sunny days where I’d only be able to get a two second exposure. On the last day of the soccer season I finally got a partly cloudy/mostly sunny day and then it was a game of “wait for a cloud and jump on to expose before the sun comes back.” Thankfully enough little clouds floated in front of the sun that I was able to shoot a roll.
Finally got around to developing it and I’m happy with the results.

Meanwhile, in Canada…
The Lomo Petzval Lens gives you bokeh (that beautiful background blur) for days!
We’re having so much fun with this lens and want to let YOU borrow it from us to shoot around San Francisco.
