This is not a photo contest, just a day to celebrate the art of pinhole photography.

This year I used my Zero Image 4x5 camera
and some 4x5 Ilford Delta 100 film.

In the morning I headed out walking the dog to a local skatepark to grab 2 photos of the ramps
Then in the afternoon, had a walk along the seafront to get the remaining 4 shots of the abandoned boats that sit along the shore.

I developed my images at home using Ilford Ilfosol 3 Developer in a Paterson Multi-Reel 3 Developing Tank with a MOD54 to hold the 4x5s.

Each exposure was around 8-10 seconds.

Hope you like the photos, will add web links for prints at a later date.

The Next Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is The Last Sunday of April 2019 (28th)
Make sure you grab yourself a pinhole camera and join in.
