In my basement lives a series of photographs of sailing ships mored in London.  These photos were taken by my father over 60 years ago in a homemade camera.  They are some of the most beautiful photos I've seen and the camera he used is simple to make and use.  

A pinhole camera is a simple device where you have a light-proof box with the film in one end and a tiny hole in the other.  You take the picture by opening up the hole for a few seconds or minutes.  


Simple.

But that's just the start.

Here are some pinhole cameras I'm drolling over on Kickstarter right now.

Gorgeous!  If anyone wants to buy me a Holiday Present... hint hint.

These beautiful designs have me thinking about how I can make my own 35mm pinhole camera.  

Anyone here play with pinholes?

Could you make a digital photo of those photos in the basement? I am interested to see how they turned out. I tried a pinhole "lens" on my DLSR, but was rather disappointed. (It has since been repurposed into a microscope adapter.)
