    No idea what this is - it's lost in the mists of time. I took the picture about 25 years ago, but just developed it this week. It's the only image on a 20 exposure roll of plus-x.

    Strange.
     
  2. You sure that isn't supposed to be portrait?

    Rapunzel, Rapunzel! Let down your hair!

    if you rotate it 90 degrees clockwise...perhaps its a battlement or whatever you call that?

    mystery!

    I thought of that, but is it just the tracks? where's the tractor? :confused:

    Interesting shot Chris, I guess after all this time you'll never know what exactly it was that you were trying to shoot.

    I can't say I blame you, my fridge is slowly filling up with exposed rolls of film from only a couple of weeks ago and I must admit I've allready forgotton what exactly is on them.
     
  11. Nah! It looks like a sunrise on an army training ground!

    Tank tracks is what I immediately thought.

    But the tower idea seems to look right, too.

    BTW, I actually like to forget exposed film a couple of years prior to developing. Makes the surprise about the resulting images even greater, 'cause usually I wait until I completely forgot what's on the film. Never managed to forget a film for 25 years though, that seems to be a record!
     
  13. Maybe a chain saw.

    So now I am thinking that it is Rapunzel after all! I was pointed to this picture, which maps quite well.
