Particularly Pleasing Practice Pinhole Pictures, Part 1

It’s Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day! Buzz and I are down in Manhattan for a pinhole photo walk so my regular post will be published a little later than usual today. In the meantime, here are some pictures that he took with the pinhole camera he built from an old Brownie Flash Six-20.

And as you also may or may not know, Your Humble Filmosaur intends to take part, using the converted Kodak Brownie Flash Six-20 introduced here recently.
