It's time once again for another edition of Time Machine Tuesday, where I search back in the archives to find an image at least one year old that was taken at about the same time of year. Today's image is from ten years ago and was created with a modified plastic Holga that I turned into a pinhole camera.
The tripod was in the river for these shots, with the water level only an inch below the bottom of the camera. It was not taken with a triptych in mind, and it was only after I had developed the film that I noticed these three consecutive negatives had the possibility to make an interesting arrangement if I grouped them together. After scanning each negative seaprately, they were brought together in Photoshop where additional tonal adjustments and digital "hand coloring" were applied.
