Photos from Pinhole Day 2014

The last Sun­day of April is the World­wide Pin­hole Pho­tog­ra­phy Day, or Pin­hole Day for short. This year, it fell on April 27, which was yes­ter­day. I man­aged to talk my hus­band into dri­ving me to the town of Goderich, Ontario by the Lake Huron to take some pin­hole pho­tos with my trusty Lumix GF1 and the Pin­wide pin­hole “lens” (basi­cal­ly a body cap with a hole on it), which has been my Pin­hole Day set-up for a cou­ple of years now.

We were plan­ning on going to Goderich on East­er Fri­day but decid­ed against it because it was rainy. I lat­er learned that a dead body was found at the beach where we would’ve been if we went there that day (which is where we were yes­ter­day). Got to say, I’m hap­py not to be one of the peo­ple who found it. I don’t know if my head would be able to han­dle any more trau­ma­tiz­ing expe­ri­ences.

Of all the pin­hole pho­tos I took yes­ter­day, the one at the top of this post is my favourite. I didn’t mean for the boy in a base­ball cap to be in the pic­ture. I thought he was hid­den behind the tree but appar­ent­ly not. Oh well. I still love that shot any­way. And here’s a few more shots from yes­ter­day that made the cut (click on a thumb­nail to see the full pic­ture):

If you’re inter­est­ed in see­ing my last year’s Pin­hole Day shots, they can be found in this Flickr set. They were tak­en in Port Dover, Ontario by the Lake Erie. See the pat­tern? Lake Erie, then Lake Huron. Maybe Lake Ontario next year? ;-)
