September 22, 2010 – March 20, 2011
There are times when I can be very impatient. Sticking a small film canister pinhole camera outside a window for six months didn’t feel like something doable for a woman who will take her film to Walgreens for that one hour service when there are more better options.
In the end, I managed to leave one of two cameras in place for the duration. The image above is a six month view into the transit of the sun as it rises over the Oakland hills.
I’ve loaded up the Quaker Oats Cam for a three month test (vernal equinox to summer solstice). If that works, then I’ll reload for a six months — summer to winter solstice, for a complete image the range of the sun’s transit.
Many thanks to Dave at Photoworks for the paper.
