Trailer at Kruger's Farm

  More photos from my wanderings.  I finally got the light leaks figured out on this original Diana.  The culprit was the red window.  I'm still trying to get the viewfinder dialed in.  I have a tendency to shoot too close and crop tight which works well with my Holga since the final image includes way more than the viewfinder shows.  The viewfinder on this Diana seems to crop close already so I find that I am excluding more than I want.
I thought the framing worked well on the rooster shot but was a little closer than I wanted on the trailer shot.

I'm a Dork!!!

   I'm a total DORK!!!  In my last post, I posted a photo that I thought had been accepted into the show, "Toyed With" at the Open Shutter Gallery.  I was looking at their website when I noticed that not only had I posted the incorrect photo on my blog, I also mailed them the wrong image.  Good thing I had a standard frame and mat ready to go.  I also had to pay priority shipping rates to get the correct image there in time!
    I've posted one of the images that did get accepted.  The title is almost exactly the same as the image that didn't get accepted.  The image is titled..."Shadow Self Portrait at a Bike Race."  The self shadow is in the upper right corner and looks like it is a fence post.
