My Pinhole Photograph

Talk about simplistic photography, no lens with this camera ! here is an image I made near Peachland B.C.'s waterfront looking out onto Okanagan Lake, Okanagan Mountain Provincial park is in the distance across the lake. A couple of years ago while visiting Vancouver, I had bought this very nice and beautifully made pinhole camera that takes standard 4 x 5 film holders, the camera is made of Yellow Cedar with and brass parts and it looks nice sitting on my bookshelf in my office too. The F200 lens is quite wide angle, the exposure was about 8 to 10 seconds, using Kodak Tri-X film.

I think we have the same pinhole camera -- mine is yellow cedar, f/200 with brass fittings, bought from a Vancouver artist several years ago and takes regular 4x5 holders.

Small world!
