A Fine Day
Yesterday came through with perfect weather, blue skies and balmy breezes, it was fantastic. We shed our winter coats and wandered about out-of-doors. Candace came to Lowell and we drove over to the renovated Lawrence Mfg Mills on the Merrimack which are now residential and called Renaissance on the River.
Lots of good photography shots to be had there. Candace brought her macro lens and I brought my Brownie Reflex for some Through The Viewfinder (TTV) pictures. I did not come up with the concept of TTV (search it on Flickr and see, ignore the fakers!). But I absolutely love the effect I get when I literally take a picture with my digital camera of the viewfinder on the Brownie camera.
The Brownie viewfinder has a fisheye effect, an old mirror and dirt for distortion and atmosphere. Because of the mirror, the pictures come out flipped backwards. Sometimes I flip them right so you can read any writing, sometimes I leave them be.
I am so excited about making these into prints and cards!
