On my recent trip to Mississippi and Memphis with my buddy, Lowry we took the chance to go see the Columns of Windsor near Port Gibson Mississippi. We arrived early in the morning and found beautiful light spilling on a magnificent old tree next to the entry road to the site. I knew there were some beautiful photos to be had. The tree probably wasn’t old when the mansion was built in the 1850s and might have seen the mansion burn in 1890. I love how the Holga camera shows things on film. The trees and columns prove my point!
These photos all have a dream like quality to them. I like the fact you have to fill in some of the gaps. On some digital files, the crystal clear sharpness is cold and too perfect.
When I got back from the trip, I sent the film into the lab for processing and scanning and racked up a nice little fee. I thought it would be an interesting experiment to offer to sell photos for half price, before they were even developed. I made the offer on Facebook and had a few folks take me up on it. I took that as a major compliment! These are some of the photos from that collection.
