As always, the last Sunday in April is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. Getting accepted in and participating in a couple of shows and exhibitions has been pretty intoxicating, so it was a pleasure to go out and take photos just for the joy of participation.
I didn’t make a new lens this year, I just re used the one from last year
I went out with one subject in mind, and fortunately, got distracted by all of the possibilities I found along the way.
How could I resist the Emeryville City Hall, one of my favorite East Bay buildings?
As I was shooting, I notice this interesting Giraffe* out in front of a café’
I returned home, and shot a couple of our household friends, a wall shelf in the dining room
and this Cat head doll my daughter made
In the end, I chose to use the Giraffe, it was more fun.
You can see the post here-
But the greatest pleasure of the WWPPD website is to just start anywhere, and start scrolling through all of the terrific images that have been submitted from all over the world. Because I am a Do it Yourselfer, my additional pleasure is seeing all of the really clever contraptions my colleagues have devised to capture their images.
This ingenuity is still one of the strongest elements of being humans-making our own tools.
*No animals were harmed in the shooting of this photo.
