Today has been warm but very breezy.   An ideal day to photograph the crud on the the surface of the pond as it blows around.

I dusted off the 5x7 camera; partly for fun and partly so that I could tilt the plane of focus to just touch the surface of the water.  With a paper negative, the 2 second exposure needed was ideal to get the floatsam to leave nice 'trails' in the image as it swirled around.

At least the floating crud is food for the tadpoles I suppose.
