From f295: My favorite single photo post

F295 was an international discussion forum begun and administered by Tom Persinger. Originally just about pinhole photography, it expanded into all kinds of alternative methods.  It was active from 2004 until 2015 but it remains on-line. Recently it disappeared from the web for a few days, and that prompted me to decide to reprise some of my favorites here at Pinholica, for backup if no other reason. 

This seems appropriate for Halloween.  Originally posted on February 16, 2010 under the title: Favorites.

Boy has it been slow in the color forum. For your consideration, to ease the boredom, my 6" chef's knife.

I'll throw in a favorite passage from The Pencil of Nature to enhance the experience.
"We have sufficient authority in the Dutch school of art, for taking as subjects of representation scenes of daily and familiar occurrence. A painter's eye will often be arrested where ordinary people see nothing remarkable. A casual gleam of sunshine, or a shadow thrown across his path, a time withered oak, or a moss covered stone may awaken a train of thoughts and feelings, and picturesque imaginings."

With the Populist. .15mm pinhole 24mm from 24x36mm frame.
