Men on the moon

By Beardy
This shot was taken on new years day 02, with a cheap film camera. Its is of two of my friends on the Cairngorm Plateau, in high winds, hence there is alot of movement on the floor.

Some of my students over the years thought that it was a picture taken on the moon hence the title.

I blew up the image on a photocopier and turned into B+W and have had it on the wall in my classroom for a few years. Today for some reason i decided to put it on the scanner to see what happened.

I know that it is very grainy, but that is to be expected.

cheap cameras can create some good moody images. i use a holga (plastic toy medium format) sometimes. i like this for those reasons

Fantastic otherworldy image, its just a shame it wasnt a wee bit cleaner, but then its unlikely it would be clean shooting with a 1Ds in these conditions!
