“Potemkin Village Door….pinhole”


This door always amuses me. It seems just so totally out of place on the main street of a small southern town. You can see it here in ‘context.’ It is between the two buildings, just to the right of center. When I went to make a pinhole photo of one of the other buildings this morning, I could not resist cutting a 4×5 inch piece of enlarging paper and making a straight photo of the door. It was pretty overcast and I was hoping to be able to get a less contrasty and more even exposure of the door. When the sun shines part of the door is usually in full sun and the other part in full shade, making for a negative that is hard to print.
