"Pennyfield Lock"
Pinhole film, Archival Pigment Print

The negative was made with the modified Korona 8x10 camera on TMAX 100 film.  The exposure was 32 minutes at F284 with no filters.  I scanned the negative and used Photoshop to adjust tone and contrast.
This old relic of a house is one of three at Pennyfield Lock on the C&O Canal.  I placed the camera about three feet from the house and tilted it back some to create the falling away distortion.  The natural darkening of the edges helps to focus the viewers eye on the texture of the siding and the draping ivy vine is a nice contrast to that siding.  It was early evening and the area was shaded hence the very long exposure.
