K&I No. 2 (pinhole)

Here is the last of my K&I images…

Lenses?! We don’t need no stinkin’ lenses!

I’ll have other pinhole photographs to share in the future… I’m building a new 35mm pinhole camera as I type. Well, not at exactly the same time; I’m not much of a multi-tasker. Anyway, this one’s made-o genuine wood, which should hold up better than its cardboard predecessors. AND it should be completed in time for worldwide pinhole day (April 24)! Huzzah!

How many cameras would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck cameras?

K&I No. 1 (pinhole)

I love all cameras pinhole. I’ve built a ton of them, the photo above coming from one of the 35mm variety. Here’s the math: me + pinhole camera + interior shot + no tripod = super blurry newlyweds. Squared.

Groom: “How much did we pay that photographer?”

Bride: “Nearly ten bucks. His prices are astronomical.”

Groom: “I’m not sure he’s worth more than seven-fifty.”

Bride: “Did he leave the lens cap on again?”

Groom: “Not exactly… still, the open bar might have been a mistake…”

My camera – she’s-a so ‘new’… but I like photos that look-a so old! Okay, my camera isn’t that new.  Still, its not like I’m loading wet plates into the thing (which would be so cool – I hope to explore all kinds of alternative photographic processes… someday). *sigh*

I digitally manipulated this shot quite a bit (trying to make it to read… older). If you’re like my wife, that crooked horizon probably irritates you a bit. I did straighten it… and try it at even sharper angles, but I ‘likes’ it this way, so this is how it stays *arms crossed defiantly over chest*. Good day, everyone – I’m off to row. Up-hill!
