2017-199 Xahjay at the Middle Falls by pearwood 2017-199 Xahjay at the Middle Falls by pearwood
ctryon50 and I took Xahjay to Letchworth State Park last week. I took the Brownie with a mostly empty roll of film. Photos were taken. This is frame thirteen out of twelve, something I cannot do with the Yashica-D which spaces the frames a bit further apart and counts shots as well as ratcheting the distance.

Square as always.

Two interesting facts here. Besides the charming young girl, with attitude, is where you shot this, at a photogenic spot in the background. That's how powerful the girl's image is to overtake such an equally powerful river scene. The sharing of the frame works well for me, allowing neither factor to overtake, a good compromise. Sometimes I think too much into the actual moment, while more likely than naught it was just dumb luck as in things coming together. It takes a special talent to consistently catch the fleeting moments we show, just now and then. This time is was right on.

The tones, on my screen were lighter than I wanted, her face slightly washed out. I think they are there in the negative.

Wow, Steve, that is a classic, and beautiful capture!  You also really have an excellent control over the Brownie!

Cheers,

What harrietsfriend said.
Plus, the light on her face - that's magic stuff, catching the shape.
