Pinhole Mayhem 2016

It’s been a few months since my Pinhole Mayhem group has managed an outing. I was traveling in England for 7 weeks and then when I came home we were busy with Christmas and then the weather turned. Each time we tried to get together we were stopped by Mother Nature. Finally, at the end of January we got together. It was a sunny beautiful Monday in downtown Portland.

We met up at Powell’s City of Books for coffee and ¬†brainstorming about what we’d like to do for the next 12 months on our pinhole Mondays.

We then wandered the streets, stopping for lunch at Boke Bowl on NW 18th and Northrup.

We managed some self portraits along the way.

Our last stop was Keller fountain. The water is turned off for winter, but we stayed long enough for one more photo.

I plan to use more 4×5 film in 2016. I love the large negatives and detail they provide.
