WPPD 2022

Filed under: Early Spring,Pinhole Photography — Frank @ 9:15 PM

Today (Sunday, 24 April 2022) is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (WPPD)!

This morning I mounted a pinhole on my camera and headed out to make some photographs. I drove a loop and stopped at a number of my favorite places to photograph: the North Branch (a section of Antrim), Hillsborough Center, East Washington, Bradford Center, Washington, Lempster and Marlow. I was “out and about” for five or six hours.

Here are half a dozen photos made today. The last of these is the one I submitted to the WPPD website*.

WPPD – 2021

Filed under: Landscapes,Pinhole Photography — Frank @ 6:00 PM

Today, is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day!

I celebrated by mounting a pinhole body cap on my dSLR and taking a drive to some of my favorite places to make photographs… Hillsborough Center, East Washington, Bradford Center and Washington.

One can only submit a single photo to the WPPD gallery. However, I can show a few more here!

Care to guess the one I submitted?

WPPD 2018

Filed under: Landscapes,Pinhole Photography — Tags: — Frank @ 12:30 AM

Sunday (29 April) was Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (WPPD).  The Vermont Center for Photography celebrated with a free workshop. I made photographs at the workshop and in both Harrisville and Hancock on the way home.

The large majority of the photos I made were with a pinhole. However, I made a few using a glass lens… the subjects just did not say “pinhole” to me.

Hillsborough Center and Washington

Filed under: Pinhole Photography — Frank @ 10:30 PM

Continuing with my Saturday afternoon procrastination*, I pointed the truck towards Hillsborough Center. This is another place that I have driven through many times but never stopped to photograph.

The church there was in nice light and there were nice clouds. I will have to go back at some point to photograph the schoolhouse. It is on the opposite side of the road from the church and in shadow during the late afternoon.

Next I, headed to Washington and its very picturesque trio of buildings** on the town common. I have photographed there many times but, on this occasion, I was thinking “pinhole” as I made the drive from Hillsborough Center.
