Pinhole camera

Back in summer, I made a pinhole camera using a matchstick box. I attached one full roll of film on one end, which connected to an empty canister on the other end.

It took a lot of trial and error and an entire roll being wasted, but I managed to get a good amount of prints. It was fun!

I finally got around to developing the pictures last month. It's interesting to see what pictures you get months after you take them. It's like stepping back into a dream, but you're not really sure where you are and when you are. I have barely any recollection of where these photos are from, but I am pretty sure one of them was when I had lunch at CrackerBarrel.

Anyway, interesting experiment.

Granny time

Hey yall.

It's been a lovely winter so far. Spent the holidays with friends and family in Los Angeles, visited an alpaca farm, climbed a mountain, and had general merriment.

I barely missed Snowmageddon, but came back to New York in time to see more snow. It's terribly cold, so I've picked up a few hobbies to cope. Crocheting like a super grandma and making nonsense out of scraps of fabric. White and brown hat below made from alpaca yarn from the Windy Hill Alpaca Ranch.
