Stained Glass

After concentrating on film photography for a while, I'm easing back into the digital world. I'm so used to all the strange effects produced by shooting film with plastic cameras, that I couldn't go back to tack-sharp, perfectly metered, auto-focused digital photography.

This was taken at Calvary Cemetery, Niles, Michigan. There is a small 8-sided building (chapel?) on the grounds. This shot was taken by putting the camera against one window from the outside and shooting across the inside at ISO 2500, f/16 for 1 sec. The distortion is produced by the window the camera lens was held against.

Excellent result, one to be proud of - though I'm not sure I understood the shooting across the inside from the outside bit, but I'm a touch thick this morning.

Sorry, Dave. After unsuccessfully trying to explain the rerouting of a state highway to my wife this morning in the car, I'm beginning to doubt my communication skills. I was standing outside the building and put the camera against a window. The picture is the window on the opposite wall of the building.

Your stained glass reminds me of Rothko. I don't know what I'm talking about, but it does.

We're even--you don't know what you're talking about and I don't know what I'm doing. I checked out your blog and noticed Tender Mercies is listed in your favorite movies--reason enough for me to become a follower.
