Cloud Lily

These are great "abstract" shots. What kind of camera are you using to take them?

Thanks, Heather! It's a total cheat, really - a fake "through the viewfinder" shot. There's a photo of some lilies taken with my usual DSLR, and on top of that (in Photoshop) a shot of a blue sky with clouds taken with the DSLR through the viewfinder of the Duaflex from this entry

You can see a real TTV through the Duaflex in this entry

P.S. The viewfinder at the top of the camera is about 4cm on each side, which makes it possible to do this - I tried it with the Kodak Vestpocket here a while back, but it's tiny, which makes it really difficult.

The camera does actually seem to be in working order but I've not actually tried it with film yet (apparently it involves a complicated restringing of a 120 reel in the dark...)
