Second moon

3 decisive moments in making a picture of the moon, on a clear day, printed it in a dusty dark room.

The moon, visible against a clear blue sky, was captured with an Olympus Penn, 35 mm. 

After developing, however, the negatives (18-24 mm) did not show any appearance of the moon. I decided that this observation would become the final work: a picture of a blue field: the inability to capture a poetic moment with limited technical equipment. 

But printing this image on a manual colour device brought the ultimate outcome: the moon did appear and even in duplicate.
