The Golden Hour



There is something so magical about sunset on the ocean in the Summer. When we walked down to the beach to catch the sunset during our yurt camping adventure I had to stop and pinhole the filtered golden light through the trees.

I was very honored to be interviewed on the Copytrack blog yesterday! I may have overly geeked out about pinhole photography, which I am always happy to do when given the chance. You can find the interview here.

Summer dreams


It is officially the dead of winter and I am dreaming of Summer. I am currently going through some pinhole photos I took last summer at the beach and they are making me happy, so I thought I’d share them here with you as my next series for Photography Friday.


This was taken at Cape Lookout on the Oregon Coast with my Reality So Subtle 6×6 and Ektar 100. I don’t know what the exposure time was because my phone had died and I didn’t have a way to meter the shot, so I used The Force.




The last of my beach shots from earlier this summer. I just finished a roll of film in my Zero today and I ordered some more c-41 developer. I’m looking forward to more pinhole from this past summer!

Cape Lookout in a Yurt

Travel and Other Adventures

Saturday morning I get an email from my husband: “Cape lookout has campsites available for Sunday. We can get a regular campsite or we can get a yurt. They have one yurt available.” Me: “Let’s take the yurt!”

It’s been years since we’ve been to Cape Lookout on the Oregon Coast. In fact, the last time we’d camped here was when we lived in Spokane, about  8 years ago. When we were here last I remember thinking it was one of the most beautiful places I’d ever been.

I have to say, it was just as pretty as I’d remembered. And this was the first time I’d ever stayed in a yurt. It was surprisingly awesome! I kind of didn’t even feel like I was camping. There was even electricity! The crazy thing is that I didn’t bother brining a plug to charge my phone because, why would I do that if I am going camping? where am I going to plug my phone in? But our yurt had an electrical outlet. So. My phone was dead for a day with a perfectly good outlet sitting there mocking me. Oh well. It was nice to be unplugged for a bit.

Here are some photos.

Pinhole Obscura

For the past three years I’ve spent Christmas in Newport, Oregon. I am going to also spend this Christmas there, as well, and I will probably be visiting a place called Devil’s Punchbowl.

What I have here is a collection of pinhole shots from Devil’s Punchbowl, taken with my Zero 2000 and my Terrapin Bijou, and at different times of the year. Some of them were taken last Christmas, and some of them were taken this past summer. Last summer I had the rare opportunity to actually walk into the punch bowl and pinhole the inside of it. You can see from the pictures it is usually churning with water!

I knew this would be a blog post for Pinhole Obscura the first time I visited this place, however, I can’t really figure out what makes this place so significant, aside from it’s name and it’s cool geology. This…
