>Hol(e)y Sunday

>It was World Pinhole Day last sunday, as well as being the day of the London Marathon. A beach hut is a fair bit easier to capture with a three-second exposure than Tsegaye Kebede, so I took my pics a fortnight early.




The technical stuff: These were all taken on a Zero 2000 pinhole camera on Agfa APX 100 film which was out of date ten years ago. Exposures varied between 1-ish second to about 3 seconds. The negs were scanned on an Epson 4900 and contrast tweaked slightly in Potatoshop. I was taking the picture of the boat in Appledore, when someone very like this bloke appeared and said “Whaddya wanna take a picture of that old rubbish for?”. For the next half hour he lectured me on what I should be photographing and how I should do it. Then I pushed him off the quay.

    >I think the boat is my favourite – just terrific. It seems to be spread out like a kipper on the kitchen table! I so wish I had the talent you have; do you do weddings? (Sorry! I'm told that's a photographer's in-joke!)

    >Haha – many thanks Affer. Actually, I have done several weddings but I can't be doing with the stress any more!
