    The ugliest pinhole camera in Illinois



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

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



    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. 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.

    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.
