Symbols in the Shadows- Holy Trinity Monastery, St. David, Az, USA

homemade "Picassocam" pinhole camera, paper negative, 45-second exposure, developed in homemade coffee developer (Caffenol CM)

This is my submission for Worldwide Pinhole Day, 2011. (Happy Pinhole Day, Friends!!)

Since WWPD fell on Easter this year, I thought it would be nice to photograph at the monastery. It was a good choice- hardly any visitors were there, and my family had a nice quiet contemplative time.

This is the bridge that crosses the pond in the meditation garden. The bridge contains early Christian symbols in the ironwork, (according to the plaque beside the bridge) and I was drawn to the shadows they made.

  1. What a beautiful shot! You caught the shadows just as they look like their own path down the middle of the bridge. Lovely perspective! (From Kathy
