Pinhole Camera Marathon

Pinhole Camera Marathon

Today is the last Sunday in April. Today is WPPD – Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. On the whole planet people with a pinhole camera shoot and upload a picture in Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day Gallery. Once you have tried it is difficult to elude the fascination of these images.
I equipped my digital SLR with a pinhole instead of a lens. I did not need to wonder about the location. Since the WPPD coincides with the Marathon in Hannover and I used to be there as a helper this issue was solved. I just needed a tripod and relatively short exposure times. Due to my equipment and way of working I distinguished from the residual raft of photographers and camera crews. Exposure times I previously tested. Pictures are always in focus, as focused as possible and nothing to see in the viewfinder anyway. So you can get started on photographing courageously.

Flers (Orne)

Flers (Orne)

Flers in Normandy/France. Houses made of boulders that were gathered from meadows and fields are characteristic of this area. Due to scores of deposits they served as building materials.
Originally, Flers was a small medieval village that’s history dates back to the 12th century. As a result of the industrial revolution the town grew into an economic center in Normandy. During World War II 70 percent of the town was destroyed by the Allies and later rebuilt within two decades.
