Diptych and Triptych

These shots were from the day I tested out the Brownie Starmatic. It has a light meter that automatically adjusts the camera aperture, and mine was still working. Not bad for a 50 year old camera. I didn't plan these as dip/trip-tychs, they just sort of came out that way as I pivoted around and shot.

Maybe if I had planned this one a little, I'd have had the fountain edge lined up better in the right hand side shot.

I was happy to capture the snowball in mid-flight in the left hand shot, even if I didn't get the other party in the center shot. Like the diptych, I wasn't planning this out, I was just spinning right round baby right round while shooting. Though I think there's definitely more symmetry going on, especially with the pathway curving around the Mens room in the center. I'd like to think I've made it look just a little bit statelier here (I have no idea what I'm talking about).

I'd like to say I've never had to use the Mens room in Washington Square Park...

I dragged the YashMat 2EB out to a social function last night. Shot nearly two rolls, hopefully the results will find their way here. Well, of course they will, but I hope they're they engender, "I really like this shot," from me, instead of "I really screwed that one up."

Oh, I know you're all on pins and needles...
