A Small Island

Lower Darnley, PEI
Zero Image 2000 pinhole, this time on a tripod.
I think that's about it for the annual color film/pinhole camera reign of terror.

Monument Valley Totems (ink transfer to variegated metal leaf)

Reworking a Monument Valley shot from earlier in 2015. This is an ink transfer onto variegated metal leaf.
The original image was shot with very expired 620 film in a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera with a reversed lens.

Postcards from the Mesozoic #2 (The acrylic transfer on gold leaf version)

With some spare time (finally), I have been trying to further deconstruct some already deconstructed images.
Lots of trial and error, lot's of "I wonder if this will work?".
And I'm glad gold leaf isn't actually made out of solid gold otherwise I'd be broke by now.
This is an acrylic transfer applied onto gold leaf. The original was shot in Holbrook, AZ with a flipped-lens Brownie Hawkeye Flash and some dangerously expired film.
And to answer my own "I wonder  if this will work" question, the answer is usually no, it doesn't work.

Nelson Island Tree #3

Nelson Island
Rowley, MA
Windsor camera (620 film Diana clone)
Dandi Pan film, expired 1968

A friend of mine recently gifted me a variety of some beautiful paper that he had made. Having some free time the other day, I added a couple of coats of an inkjet receptive coating and gave it a try in the Epson 3880. The digital image really doesn't do justice to how wonderful it looks in reality.
BTW, that mottling in the sky is from the 1968 expired film, not the paper.

Here is the unprinted image on Flickr.
