PHOTOMATON #4: Large format camera, Sullivan & Palmer House

In Photomaton on September 20, 2010 at 6:34 pm

Photomaton started out as a weekly assembly of three images in my admiration. This time I give you a photo of a 4″x5″ negative captured with a large format camera today…taken on my Blackberry…through a window.

That’s a fellow picture maker who is also photographing me in Grant Park. Look at that gorgeous Sullivan terracotta straight ahead, and the Palmer House Hilton Hotel all the way to the right of the negative.

You can follow my Photomaton Tumblr to see weekly posts of photographic output.
