The components of this image were taken in 1997 using a basic roll-film camera without automatic focusing, or a film-transport motor-drive or auto-light metering.
It was mounted on a heavy tripod.
The individual negatives have recently been scanned and joined by software.
It is displayed here at low resolution to enable it to fit onto Gwulo.
To view it, use the ‘Full Screen’ button, zoom in and then use the controls to move it horizontally to see the full length. <Read more ...>
