Mid-Century Apocalypse on Flickr.Debris from the destruction last week of the Tennessee Department of Highways and Public Works building near downtown Nashville. It was a beautiful mid-century building, modern looking in some ways but mostly it reminded me of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work. Sad to see it go. For years I wanted to buy and save it. Alas, I’m not a developer or a money person.
This neg was very muddy…reddish with faint outlines. My scanner had trouble figuring out what to do with it, and I had trouble figuring out what to do with the scan once it was done, so I let Photo Shop “auto-correct” for tone and contrast. This was the result.
I shot the image using a Zeiss Ikon Nettar I converted to pinhole a few years ago (camera image: www.flickr.com/photos/37995657@N00/6140860048/in/photolis…). I shot a couple of rolls after I first made it, but I didn’t like the results very much so i put it down for a couple of years. The focal length is a longer than I like with a narrow angle of view (58 degrees vs. the 112 I’m used to with my Zero Image). Still, it takes good pinholes, I just have to get used to it. I plan to shoot with it more in the coming months.
Here’s the camera info:

Pinhole from my Instant Year project. A stand up base. I realized after I shot it that upside down, it looked like a bear’s face. I mean, i realized before I took the picture. That’s why I took it. Right? f/140ish, Impossible PX70 Color Protection film, several minute exposure
