42nd Annual Birthday Sunset on Flickr.
March 4, 2013 (001/365)
I’ve decided to start a 365 project (I swear, swear, swear I won’t shoot a single image looking down at my feet) of pinholes shot on Impossible Project (and maybe a some Fuji) instant film. In order to keep things interesting for me, I plan to create the images using different cameras built to shoot Impossible film.
This image, taken on the top floor of my work’s garage at sunset, was shot using an ammo can on a tilted film plane. The exposure was about 5 seconds on PX 70 Color Shade PUSH.
It was my birthday. I’m 42. Sometimes I realize I’m getting old although I still feel very much 18. It scares the hell out of me that half my life, perhaps more, is gone. Most of the time, though, I’m happy with who I am, where I am, and what I am. I do love this life even if it moves too fast.
