"There's a cow on the roof!!"

Diana multi-pinhole camera (using one pinhole for this image), 6-second exposure, Ilford Delta ISO 100, developed in homemade Caffenol C, negative backlit on a lightbox and photographed with DSLR camera, inverted in Photoshop

This composition is our rendition of this image. (which we found laminated under a tabletop in a Tombstone, Arizona restaurant)

The little log house sits under Majestic "Steve", a 200-year-old cottonwood tree at the San Pedro House, between Sierra Vista and Bisbee, Arizona. I have tried to find out what the house was used for, to no avail yet.

"Where's the cow?" you might be wondering.  Click the image, which will take you to my FLickr account, and then hover your mouse over the image there, to reveal the cow...

The Fam gave me a Diana multi-pinhole camera and a very creative 120 film bouquet for Mother's Day this year. It was a complete whim on their part, and complete surprise to me. What fun it's been!

So where do we go to try it out that afternoon? Well, to go see Steve, of course! ("Steve" is the gentle giant cottonwood tree)

image made: May 8, 2011, San Pedro Riparian area, between Sierra Vista and Bisbee, Az.
