Maid of the mist (or Preparing for the Feared Banana Cream Pie Wars)

Here are some pictures from a film I shot with my toy panoramic camera on Liz and I’s recent trip to Niagara falls. I think these look best as a slideshow (there are also some extra pictures here)

The center of Niagara is tacky beyond belief – the automated voices that blare out incitements to come and see a wax work of the world tallest man etc. were a first for me. The falls themselves did not disappoint though and the Maid of the Mist boat trip really is a lot of fun.

I shot 2 rolls of film on the short boat ride – this one and what thought was a roll of tri-x pushed to 1600 with a deep red filter on it. Unfortunately I had actually loaded that camera with portra so the results are terrible – 2 stops under exposed and red coloured! Oh well at least I am pleased with the toy camera pics.

Actually one of these pics got a comment that really tickled me, hence the title of this post 🙂
