I realized a few weeks ago that I have taken photos of one of my favorite places, Zig Zag Falls with almost all of my pinhole cameras. So I thought it might be fun to feature them in one blog post.

There are a few more cameras that haven’t seen Zig Zag Falls yet and now I will make it my mission to take them up there next summer! I have a few new ones coming, too.
I have to admit that I don’t know where this was taken or what it is even a picture of. Well, it appears it is a waterfall but the chicken wire is throwing me off a little.
Ok, while I was typing that last sentence it hit me. I know where this was taken. It was taken at Zig Zag Falls. I think I have pinholed this with every single camera that I own at this point (note to self, this might make an interesting blog post).

Here is a photo I took last September. This has been sitting in my “photos to upload to Flickr” folder for months and months. When I first saw it, it didn’t do much for me. It was one of those where I thought, “Meh.” So it just sat there, waiting for me to upload it. I finally got around to it the other day and I am surprised by the positive feedback I have received on Flickr. Why is it so hard to know what other people will like compared to what I like? I feel so disconnected with that part of the creative process, and I do feel like connecting with others is part of the creative process. But I feel like it should be genuine and true to oneself. However, one can’t deny the way something connects with others, either. That’s important, too.
