New Year’s Day Headache


I took this picture on New Year’s day because of the can in the bottom.

The can held “hard iced tea” – a guaranteed hangover drink, especially in the quantities typically consumed New Year’s Eve.

I was out shooting with Earle whose work you can find on twitter as @Takgyver01 and also here.

He had a Spotmatic and various lenses, including my Takumar 17/4 fisheye.

I had my Mamiya M645 Super with a wide-ish 55/2.8 lens and shot a roll of Lomography Color 800, and another of Kodak Portra 400.

I also had an Olympus XA in my pocket loaded with JCH Street Pan 400, but that roll is not yet finished.

The late afternoon light combined with a touch of under exposure saturated the yellows quite nicely.

    • Well, it was what caught my eye as I walked by, but then when I turned to take the picture, the rest of the scene kind of took over! I like that it is just there, to be noticed if it is seen. You might not be able to tell, but it is a brand call “Hey, Y’all” which is kind of appropriate for a camouflaged corner trying to attract some attention.
