A second solargraph from a pinhole camera mounted in our backyard pear tree from June 22 through December 27, 2014. Of all of the cans I collected this week, this one had the most unobstructed view of the sun, and the resulting image revealed the most interesting abstract patterns when magnified.
This is a homemade medium format pinhole camera built from scratch- Takahashi-san calls it the diy 66 Zoom Pinhole- you can see a selection of pictures shot with it on flickr at its different (approx) zoom lengths: 35mm, 50mm, and 80mm. Check out his flickr stream for more examples of his film camera customization.
From the second pinhole camera-can I retrieved this evening. This can was attached to a corner of our chain link fence on July 26 and was facing east-southeast, approximately. The distinctive Y-shaped trunk of our neighbors’ plum tree is visible near the center of the image, as is a station wagon to the right and the ghost of a car that often parks behind the station wagon. Our neighbors’ house is distorted beyond recognition to the far left, and foliage from a laurel hedge can be seen at the bottom of the picture.
