Fancy Pinhole Camera

There is a huge photo processing lab two doors down from my office. It was established decades ago within my department and once employed about 30 people (dunno if that number is completely accurate, but it’s certainly big enough to have done so).  I mentioned to my friends there that my daughter and I are interested in pinhole photography.

One of my colleagues loaned me a very nice pinhole camera. It’s reliable and has given me the chance to work examine exposure times with a particular aperture. Here’s the first round of results. I’m still figuring this out, which is a lot of fun.
