And the Story behind the photo. I liked the lighting coming through the window. But the room itself was a ruin. So I set up my tripod and my Mamiya 645 to capture the window. Other Tourists saw what I was doing and assumed that the must be something exciting in this room. They crowded around me, but were disappointed. The was only the Light!
OK, first this is a very unofficial entry. The challenge was to create a home made pinhole, makes some image and post them to the #CameraChallenge. I have a lot of pinhole cameras (some I've never used) and I really didn't feel like making another one. Then I ended up with this piece of crap camera........and an idea was born:
You can see that for one thing, the lens is gone. This is a common fault with these cameras. But you can also see the 'T-I' switch, that will allow me to leave the aperture open for my image attempts.
So I have the camera body, but I needed a pinhole. Well what do you do with all of those leftover SolarCans after you've made your Solargrams? Tah Dah........you can try to recycle that pinhole:
Now remove the pinhole from the SolarCan:
I did three cans just in case to see which size would fit best:
And Voila! A Pinhole (or sorts): The Hawkette Pinhole.......
The pinhole you can see is rather large. But let's try it and see what happens.......
