If you’re a regular reader of this blog you might know that I have a couple of pinhole photography projects going on. My main focus these past couple months has been my “Ties to the Land” pinhole photography project. There has been a subtle change in approach, instead of coming across scenes that I think will fit the intent of the project, I ‘m now (on the whole) actively seeking out locations that fit the project. The list is growing all the time, but quite how I’m going to get close enough to RAF Menwith Hill with a pinhole camera to do the “golf balls” any justice I’m not quite sure! (If you see me in the news you’ll know why. )
I have had a bit of surge in momentum these past couple of months, but for some reason I’ve been holding back on sharing them like I usually do, not sure why that is the case.
The above photograph is currently the last photo in my planned mini ebook – a sort of “Story so far…”. Its of Formby Beach near Liverpool where a layer of mud has been revealed that contains footprints of all sorts of animals (including humans) dating back to the Neolithic area – some 4,000 years old. Its quite humbling to know that you’re nothing special and that humans have walked this very land long before us and our technology came along. In its own way, that’s why I feel pinhole photography in all its basic-ness lends itself quite well to this project.
I’ve added a good number of new photographs to the project, some using infra red film (as it was sunny last weekend!), please have a visit over at – http://www.alastairrossphotography.co.uk/ties-to-the-land-stonework-pinhole-photography-project/
