Looks like it’s (wait for it… ) *dun dun dun* Weird-out Wednesday *dun dun*! No worries, though… no one got squeezed in production of the above. Not that I’m one to pinch and tell. This is actually a piece from ye olde undergrad thesis show… if that… lends the slightest bit of credibility. At all. Anyway, something a bit calmer Friday. I promise. Unless I have a really awful Thursday.

4 Days Short and a Dollar Late (pinhole)

Did I mention I just spent 2 weeks building a 35mm pinhole camera for Worldwide Pinhole Day 2011? Did I mention Worldwide Pinhole Day 2011 takes took place on April 24 2011? *sigh* Oh well, let’s pretend I intended to hit this party ‘fashionably late’. Salsa, anyone?

George: “Why don’t they have any salsa on the table?”

Jerry: “What do you need salsa for?”

George: “Salsa is now the number one condiment in America.”

Jerry: “Do you know why? Because people like to say salsaaaaa.”

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…”
