Seven hour exposure taken in Zion National Park, Utah. Large "C" in the sky is Polaris, and the vegetation is glowing yellow from the sodium vapor lights from the nearby Zion Lodge.

Is this an alien?

Or a grandson who walked in front of the light box and stood there in the middle of the shot?

I learned a couple things about photography this week but just as importantly I learned that I really needed to dust the top of my lamp.

I wasn't even going to attempt it this week but decided at the last minute to give it a go. Just some quick shots around the house to try it out. I think I'll stick with modern photography methods from now on...

My old '94 Grand Am. Picture is from about 8 years ago or so, I think.

Taken with a "classic" pinhole camera (tin blacked out with spraypaint, aluminum foil hole, photo paper inside, developed in a darkroom.

I took some shots with a pinhole camera, lens and a lens cap. They were lousy company, and I'm pretty sure they were upset that I didn't share any.

Mc Donalds drive through!

Ok so I struggled like hell with this weeks theme.

I took about 400 shots over the past few days.

After doing some research on flickr and stuff I have to say some people get amazing shots with pinhole cameras, all the best ones I have seen were done with medium or large format film.
The dust on my sensor ( at least I think thats what it is) is killing me.
