This was actually supposed to be yesterday’s post. I had no internet, and I needed a break!
We finally got the New York shots today. I really wanted to get it right so I mapped out my shots. One film holder failed, but I’ll get the photos, they’ll just have that light-leaked film look on the edges. Today’s lesson, when you’re in a sensitive place such as a port in the NYC area and it’s after sunset, and the port authority police stop you, you could possibly go to jail. Unless of course your dad happens to be retired from the sheriff’s department, and he happens to be with you. Lucky break. Tomorrow we stop in New Haven Connecticut, then on to Boston Wednesday.
Matthew Hinton from The Times-Picayune in New Orleans sent this link to the interview we did a few days ago. It’s got a video and slide show, along with the article: “Photographer uses X-ray film to record landmarks around the country”
