Charlie's tractor

homemade paint can pinhole camera, paper negative, 25 sec exp, developed in Caffenol CM.

He loves old tractors, and he recently bought one, just because, I reckon. It sounds like a helicopter as he drives it by.

I got this quick pinhole before heading inside for the morning workout. It was literally a dart to get the can in the back of the car, a few seconds to scoop gravel under the can to position it, and 15 seconds to guess-expose, before running the camera back to the car, and going inside. It was purely gut intuition at a fast pace, which isn't natural for me usually, but it worked this time. (-:
