Pinhole madness

Yesterday, April 28th, was World Wide Pinhole Day. Yes, there really is such a thing. Pinholers from all over the world go out and make some pinhole magic. Some post their photos at http://www.pinhgoleday.org and others use Flickr.

You can find many wonderful examples of pinhole photography on Flickr. Have a look if you have time. You may decide to grab one of these little magic boxes with no view finder and no lens and make your own magic. Believe me, you’ll get hooked.

The long exposures give you time to enjoy your surroundings or think about where you want to go next.

From my last post you can tell I enjoy doing interior shots. I am doing a series on coffee shops and restaurants.

Whatever you fancy I do encourage you to try this type of photography. It really takes you back to basics.

    Marvellous images, Gretchen. They’re all very special. I particularly like the last two (the domed building is spectacular) and your series on coffee shops and restaurants.
