Selfie


What does a man do while waiting patiently for 50 seconds to pass by?

Enjoying a smoke? Not me, have been there, way to bad for health and wallet so I stopped. It wasn’t that difficult.
Having a chat? With whom I may ask, being there in the middle of nowhere.

So after the first shot I had an idea. Why not walk into the frame, stand there for 30 seconds and leave the frame?
Would 30″ be enough to get captured on film?

I walked leisurely into the frame and stood there while counting slowly to 30 and trying very hard not to move. Then I walked away and waited for the remaining time to tick away into oblivion. I closed the shutter by releasing the cable and loaded my camera, tripod and stuff into my car and drove to the next location I had pinpointed for some long exposures.
Little did I know my camera had a huge light leak that only showed during exposures longer than 1/15th.

I guess it is part of the charm working with old camera’s.
