Did you know that when you are taking a photo up close with a c300 (or any other TLR I would imagine) you have to correct for parallax? Oh? You did? Well, yeah, yeah, yeah. You’re all so smart. So now I know. But when I shot this roll of film from the other day I didn’t have this knowledge. I thought I was making the appropriate compensations (and I was, only it was just for exposure not for framing) — and I shot a few frames without correcting.
But sometimes that’s OK. And they didn’t turn out all that bad — just kinda, I dunno, surreal? Like dreams that we half remember. Yeah, we’ll go with that. In fact, here is how I will present this photo in the future:
“An exploration of memory, pertaining to an adult’s subconscious renderings
of the vantage points inherent in the vision of a child”

It’s time for this week’s Wallpaper post!
Last Sunday, we went for a walk to High Falls in Dupont State Forest and greatly enjoyed the warm weather and massive volume of water from the previous rains. An awesome day, especially considering the week of weather we’ve had since here in WNC.
Here is one of the photos that was posted earlier but cropped differently to (a) show more of the waterfall how it appeared that day and (b) fit computer wallpaper sizes more accurately.
I hope you enjoy! Download here
It’s a new year, we made it to 2013, another arbitrarily marked trip around the sun (with a few course corrections along the way)! OK, I’m not really that cynical and I’m certainly glad to be here. And with that in mind, and keeping in mind that I haven’t always kept up my promises for regular updates, I’m going to try and add a new feature here with this blog.
Weekly wallpaper sets. But not just any wallpaper sets, oh no. These will be created from a photo taken in the last week. So it’ll be hot and fresh and as heart warming as baked bread. Unless you are gluten free, then it will be as heart warming as fresh GF banana muffins.
With the introduction out the way, here is one from a visit to Mississippi last weekend (photo from Saturday, so still in the last week but barely). It is (one of) the mailboxes from an old family home in Mississippi. It is actually my in-law’s family house, and I am grateful for their sharing some time exploring the property.
