Film: Velvia 50 transparency film – 120
Camera: terraPin 6X9 3D printed pinhole camera, 40mm, f/174
Every time I return to the The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. I see new things in new ways. I returned last week to finish a roll I started 8 months ago. In Iceland. Of course, I took a pinhole camera too. It was a bright day, and exposures in full sun were about 4 seconds.
This phone box (no phone ) sits outside the Lockspot Cafe. Some of the vessels from Deadliest Catch are based out of Ballard and the crews have been filmed at the “Deadliest Bar” Monday night is trivia night. I have yet to win.
I love these swirly pinhole “lens flares” I’m usually too chicken to shoot into the sun like this. Very ethereal.
The locks , buildings, and gardens date to 1911. This shop (?) building is classic Age of Steam steel construction. Think boxy Eiffel tower. There is some rust in this corner that is splitting the panels apart. The silver paint has a velvety patina that the Velvia almost captured.
Detail, Cedar tree # 27. The bark is almost opalescent.

The cast concrete Administration building. Notice the lamps on the steps.

Incidentally, my first pinhole photographs were made at the Ballard Locks six years ago:
