Daily Practice 107/365

Title: "The beginning of the end"

It's fun to play around with instant film and a homemade pinhole camera without expectations. Down and dirty, hand held for long exposures, guesstimating the exposure time - it's a wonderfully freeing exercise. You're never sure exactly what is in the frame, how blurred the image will be from camera shake, and whether the exposure will be reasonable, until you peel the film apart. In this image, getting a good exposure for the sky burned in the sun to the point where it is other-worldly. As if we aren't just on the brink of disaster, but have arrived full force.
