Abstract Experiments

Susie's Christmas Tree Abstract

Some time ago for a short time I owned a Baby Crown Graflex, sheet film medium format camera. Quite interesting, almost sorry I traded it away (but not quite). At the time I owned it, one of my friends' family was in the tradition of putting up a very interesting Christmas tree. Not an evergreen, and a live tree, which they kept outside through Spring, Summer, and Fall (and truly, even part of Winter). After it shed its leaves and nearing Yule they brought it in and decorated it.

This image is a time exposure using Kodak Tri-X film. I racked the focus knob totally out to Infinity, locked the shutter open on bulb for about 5 seconds and gently turned the focus knob through the extent from out of focus to in and out again at the other extreme.
