a small excursion

A recent afternoon trip to Magpie Springs and Kuitpo Forest gave me spaced to take a few photos even though I had 3 dogs with me. Unfortunately the pictures were just quick snaps:

Even though I had the baby Linhof in the boot of the car it was impossible to use a view camera on a tripod with the three dogs racing all over the place. I had to keep an eye on them and not on the ground glass with my head under a dark cloth.

These last ten days have been frustrating, as I haven’t bean able to do any tripod based photography of the subjects that would suit the format of the Linhof’s 6×7 and 6×9 film backs:

The conditions have also been good: still days and soft afternoon light.
