The Silken Tent
She is as in a field a silken tent
At midday when the sunny summer breeze
Has dried the dew and all its ropes relent,
So that in guys it gently sways at ease,
And its supporting central cedar pole,
That is its pinnacle to heavenward
And signifies the sureness of the soul,
Seems to owe naught to any single cord,
But strictly held by none, is loosely bound
By countless silken ties of love and thought
To everything on earth the compass round,
And only by one’s going slightly taut
In the capriciousness of summer air
Is of the slightest bondage made aware.

    TtV is quickly becoming my favorite form of photography. What did you use for your bottom camera?

    Rediflex, I have a Duaflex but do not have a macro lens for my digital SLR. Right now, I am creating this TtV images using Paint Shop Pro. A variety of masks can be found in the TtV group at flickr.

    Thanks Anna!

    I have a rediflex (surprise?) and an argoflex that I use for bottom cameras, and I use a scrawny kodak point-and-shoot in macro mode to do my TtV work. I need badly to put together some light-blockers! I hope you get a macro lens soon, TtV can be a pain to carry around two or more cameras, but the results are so much fun.
