Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

Shot from inside a room cut with steam hoses into the Oberer Grindelwaldgletscher (upper glacier at Grindelwald, Switzerland).  Canon F-1N exposure unrecorded on Kodak Ektachrome 100 slide film.  Summer 1987.


Antebellum Lawnmower

This gem showed up in the scanning of my father’s lifetime of chromes.  It was shot with an Argus C3 on Ektachrome somewhere around 40 to 50 years ago.  While he was partial to the square negative 2 1/4 roll film twin lens reflex, he always had his Argus loaded with positive film and close at hand for the right moment.  The home is in Greensboro, Alabama. I chose it for the banner on my blog’s homepage for its honest, dichotomous expression of the unapologetically organic and genteel sophistication that is southern living.
