Week 10 – Brownie Hawkeye on the street

Over the past bunch of months, I have done a lot more 35mm work, and now I’m finding myself missing looking down into the camera.  I very much prefer using a WLF, since it doesn’t require me to break the connection between myself and my surroundings by putting a camera in front of my face.  Lately, a smaller camera that I carry with me everywhere has been much more my M.O.  So I decided to try a happy medium:  the Brownie.  Smaller, lighter, more easily shoveable into a bagable, but with a WLF.  I also had been keen to try out my friend Efrain’s multiple exposure technique again.  So off I went, with a stop for lunch. This roll is one of the three I exposed that day, and I am including all but a couple of shots that didn’t work well enough to even bother showing.

In the next two images, I learned (again) that the Brownie’s shutter speed isn’t really fast enough for photographing mid-stride
