A Pastoral Scene

富士山

This was taken around Shuzenji, just after i’d first bought the Hasselblad. It’s the sort of shot that you can imagine yourself taking with a big medium format camera – nobody around to distract you, an idyllic scene, allowing yourself to get lost in the viewfinder.

And, ah, that viewfinder! I remember being entirely enchanted with the distinct 3D effect that you experience when you simply waggle the camera about a little. Things see to stand off the glass… quite distracting. Also quite disappointing when you look at the negatives, where you are left in no doubt that this is a 2D medium.

That’s Mt. Fuji hiding behind the smoke drifting in the valley.
