photo with hand

photo with fingers

last sheet of film

I was not doing very well with very limited time to try and take a 4 X 5 b&w instant analog pinhole photo for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day.  I had only 4 chances with my last 4 sheets of film.  And I had not used the camera for about a year. 

First I forgot to remove the dark slide and got all black of course.  You can imagine that one for yourself.

Then I was so clumsy that my hand was in the way.  It is rather hard to move a mechanical shutter quick enough for this very fast film.

Then I got it to where only a some of my fingers were in the photo.

Then I got the closest I could get to okay with the last sheet of film.

Not a huge success but I did celebrate WPPD before I went to work.  This is probably the worst photo I have taken to enter into the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day Gallery.  Go see what others have put up so far.

We the unwilling
led by the unknowing
are doing the impossible for the ungrateful.
We have done so much
for so long
with so little
we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

the working man's dilemma 
(developed a trilemma)

The "working poor" as they are approvingly termed, are in fact the major philanthropists of our society. They neglect their own children so that the children of others will be cared for, they live in substandard housing so that other homes will be shiny and perfect; they endure privation so that inflation will be low and stock prices high. To be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor to everyone else.
