If you're at all familiar with this blog you're used to seeing photos of incredibly mundane objects. Sorry but today is more of the same. I don't know if I'll ever be able to ditch my fascination with the ordinary and ubiquitous.

Also as usual for me these days, most of these were taken with my homemade 63mm f/2 Cadobo camera on Foma MG Classic paper. Exposure times for these are between an hour and an hour and a half. The last two images were taken with the Lumenbox (by Jorge Otero) and are eight hour expsoures on Arista Edu paper.

I'll be teaching a workshop in June on building DIY lumen cameras using my stock of 63mm plastic plano-convex lenses. As such I'll shortly be testing a variety of (mostly expired) papers from Arista, Ilford and Kodak for potential use in tha workshop. Since I've become somewhat well acquainted with the two papers that I currently use I'm pretty excited about trying some new papers. The experiment continues!
