In college, my first photo assignment was to construct and successfully use a pinhole camera. I made it out of a 20-year old cookie tin, lined it with electrical tape and put a piece of Ilford b/w RC paper inside and went to town. The most successful image was simple, blurry and vignetted -- a single pine tree surrounded by snow. I wish I knew where I put the one print I made of it. In contrast, the pinhole image pictured here was made with my Pentax ZX-7 on some random Fuji color film. Since this day, I haven't been able to get a decent pinhole image using the same method. I guess I just got lucky!
