New Thoughts, The Sound of the Atlas


My old Atlas Metal working lathe, has developed a squealing bearing in the rear spindle shaft. It is a bitter wrenching sorrowful and painful sound as the metal wears away at itself.
The Lathe was made in 1936

Old Film, Panoramic found




I processed a roll of film that had been sitting on my shelf for a number years. I seem to gather old rolls of black and white, this roll must have been taken last year using my crude home-made panoramic camera.

The Broken Shard


I'm clearing the van out, and found a shard of glass from a day I spent with Sean and his Stereo Wet Collodion Camera. I remember the small glass plate breaking, one half of two images, one adjacent and slightly parallax to to the other
