It would be nice to have a curved hand rail on the front porch but, alas, there is none. The first frame shot on the pinhole camera, I think the film was not exactly lying flat. Didn't effect critical focus though.

I got two images with his light band. Both about the same size. The two frames were on different parts of the roll. It is not a film registration problem. The image next to the banding is registered properly. Any ideas?

It was snowing pretty hard and some of the snow showed up in the image. Interesting.

It's become an Elgin institution. It is a cozy and charming spot. And it is the kind of place where you can set up your new pinhole camera on a tripod by your table and nobody bats an eyelash.

I had lunch at Al's with a very good friend and we took my new pinhole camera out on the street to play with it.

Not the nautical time. As with so many other houses here, this one is chopped up into three apartments. Hence the three doorbell buttons.

It's an expression that connotes misdirection and confusion. But for a photographer, it's not a bad thing.

Bad neighbors don't clear their sidewalks. Like Elgin Academy.

This was a mostly failed roll. I put the cartridge in backwards, shooting through rather than on the film. Not a lot of dynamic range or contrast. I blame it on all the snow...
