Sprocket Hole Santas

This image is the product of my first experiment running 35mm film through my medium-format Truview (Diana clone). It was taken in Canowindra, a rural NSW town best know for its annual balloon festival and museum of fish fossils. Judging by the subject matter, I shot this around Christmas, either in late 2004 or early 2005. The roofs on the main street were lined with these billboard Santas — such a cute treat for people driving through.

I love it! I especially like how the Santa in the foreground peeks out from between two sprocket holes. Very fun!

Thanks! The Santa peeking out between the sprocket holes is, of course, a lucky fluke. Gotta love those ... my photography survives on them!
