    Kinda like the best little whorehouse in Texas....but not quite as fun. :laugh:

    It's ugly. It's certainly not creative...but....

    :D:D

    IT WORKS!

    I'll have some shots posted once the film dries and I can make some contact prints.

    As long as it works, who cares what it looks like.

    That's EXACTLY how I feel about it. :smile: It does a pretty good job, too. I'm surprised. Then again, I'm always surprised when something I make turns works!

    BTW, the ugliest pinhole camera was joke...and I think it fell flat on it's face. *shrugs*

    Tch, tch. Never judge a book by its cover.
    Sorry, never judge a pinhole camera by its looks.

    Ya know, I kinda like it. It certainly is unique looking (and reminds me of a car I once had and loved).

    BTW:

    I was doing a test roll of film. Not too bad for my first try. That was an 10 sec. exposure under a 200W halogen light. I'm pretty sure the white at the bottom is coming from the area that I cut out to see the frame number. I used some black paper to cover it...but light it still leaking through. I can always find some translucent plastic to glue behind that. I'll take it out again and see what I can get over my lunch tomorrow.
