A few friends popped out of the attic to visit Wednesday.   I mentioned it was a bit early, but they insisted.

After a few old drinks of potion and the like, they warmed up to the idea of posing for the camera.

I took this opportunity to try out a few new pieces of glass.  First up was a no name Petzval lens which I'm guessing is around f4.

This 5x7 plate is a 12 second exposure.  PLease use the links to view the full size gallery image and tech info.  Enjoy.

I think this a great series with a very unique mood and look.
It really has a fascinating "spell".
Fascinating!
I can see a huge progression in your works within the last few years.
And it is not only because of the new gear you are using.

I hope to see an exhibition one day here in good ol Germany, maybe with live music by you and me.
Now that would be a good idea, wouldn't it?
