Dublin pinhole

During one of those quiet days in the shop I made a camera out of a matchbox. Went for a walk. Developed the film. And then I asked myself: why on earth did I buy digital SLR? No digital manipulation. Pure photography. As it should be.

The price of reliability is the pursuit of the utmost simplicity. It is a price which the very rich find most hard to pay. ~ C.A.R. (Tony) Hoare, 1980

In this case, beauty can be substituted for reliability.

Thanks, Primal! Still working on the edges - I think the perforation might not be necessary. More to come...

I think the edge problem might be solved by a very tiny single pin point, no? What did you use to make the hole?

anonymous, I've been using a mask, just made another one, actually. I'll see how the two compare. It is a tiny single pin point - otherwise the image wouldn't be projected.
