Oh My Goodness, There’s Dust

Once again Paula at Lost In Translation has a worthy challenge for photographers BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: IMPERFECT

You must have in your archives a photo that you consider imperfect, but you love it anyway, or the photo maybe perfect, but the subject is not? Whichever the case, how do you feel about sharing some imperfection for this challenge?

The photo, from somewhere back in the late ’70, is just what I wanted, a few small problems with the paint. But the print shows show up some imperfections in the darkroom, dust on the negative! I shot this with a Nikormat FTN, probably using Plus-X film, that’s at an ASA (ISO) of 125. With the sunlight of the day that would have been probably around f/8 at 1/125s exposure.

    Where was this imperfect beauty anchored? Mike, thank you for the interesting take on the theme. I wanted to click the “like” on the post too, but there are some issues with WordPress loading. Thank you for taking part in the challenge. Wishing you a great week!

      That photo and the print are about 40 years old, so my memory of where the shot was taken might not be truly accurate, but I think it was on Tilghman Island, on the Chesapeake Bay. I think it was the day I also got some wonderful shots of Skipjack masts using an orange filter, making the sky darker than a Yellow filter would have, but not as dark as a Red one.

      Yes, there are times when WordPress ‘LIKE’ is darned slow to respond – it gets frustrating, all I can say is try again.
