WPPD has come and gone ....
I thought by now there would be a flurry of posts.
Here in SE Pennsylvania, not only was it unseasonably hot (mid 80s), but clear and sunny -- an infrequent WPPD condition in my experience. I started with a list of three candidate locations and blew through my film at the first. The week before, I attended a chamber music event at Steel City Coffee House in Phoenixville. Parking behind the row of storefronts, I noticed an old building that had been part of a multi-acre brownfield for many years has been rehabbed into a vistor center for the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. I was planning to come back later with the Bronica and some Pan F, but since yesterday was WPPD, oh heck, why not. I submitted the one of the gear and grounds to WPPD, but I also liked the bridge structure. That was the added bonus, a new bridge under construction.
In keeping with Thomas's law of perversity, turns out there was only one sheet of ISO 100 film left, but a dozen of ISO 400 which is a bit difficult to use with the manual flap shutter; naturally the sun was out super bright. So some of the negs are a bit bullet proof, but they scan OK. The B&J-Hole came through.
The whole pile is out on my PBase gallery.
I had fun!
Well I was there.

And me, couple of great image above too.
I forgot to post mine here, so here it is.
Fork In the Road
I think it's OK for a cheap junk store camera converted into a pinhole. Fuji 400 ASA at ~1 sec.
I was there, so to speak.
Here's my effort: http://www.pinholeday.org/gallery/2009/index.php?id=160
I like to try and do something different each year so tried IR Pinholes. It worked quite well but I should have used a wider angle of view, and taking 3 minute exposures of flowers in quite windy weather was probably against 'the rules'

Reason: Image didn't appear... My mistake, I'm sure.
some of mines are in my gallery, it was my second time out with a pinhole camera, I have to say that things went better than what I was expecting
Looks like they went quite well. I especially like the horizontal-format picture... Instant expressionism!

P.S. I wish I could filter out all the digi images in the gallery!
My pinhole of last sunday with :
