A Pinhole Tour of Zig Zag Falls

Photography

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.

Pinhole Obscura

In less than one week  I will board a plane for Amsterdam where, the following Sunday, I will hang out with the rest of the gang from Pinhole Obscura for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. To say I am excited is an understatement. This will be the first time meeting my friends in real life, and hopefully it will be the first of many times we are able to get together to play pinhole. We will feature a post on this blog sometime in May with pinhole photos from the day, so keep an eye out for  that!

I thought it might be fun to write a post about my entry for WPPD last year. A few weeks before WPPD I found a pinhole camera kit I had stored in my closet for years. I looked through the kit many times in the past but always became overwhelmed by the instructions and…
