"I got this quick pinhole before heading inside for the morning workout. It was literally a dart to get the can in the back of the car, a few seconds to scoop gravel under the can to position it, and 15 seconds to guess-expose, before running the camera back to the car, and going inside. It was purely gut intuition at a fast pace, which isn't natural for me usually, but it worked this."

"There is an old Dodge truck half-buried at a wonderful music venue in a nearby canyon. The seat coverings are gone, and little weed seedlings are actually growing up through the springs!"

"The camera was about 1 inch fromthe closest blueberries. I wanted to see how close I could get objects in focus with the pinhole camera."
