It’s like gazing at clouds, looking at the back door of Pearl Art and Craft Supply in Central Square, Cambridge. Over time, stickers collected on the door. Then, probably through a store-manager’s edict, they were removed. Pearl was a three-story art-supply store in Central Square, Cambridge. I believe Blick occupies the space now. Shot with a 4 by 5 view camera, made in the mid ’80s from a kit from Fader Photo Works. Similar kits were offered by Bender Photographic.
This shot was taken in the Boston Public Garden during World Wide Pinhole Photography Day 2006. Click for a larger version.
