“Blountstown Courthouse….Pinhole”


To me, the heat of a Florida summer day is perfectly reflected in this pinhole print of the Blountstown Courthouse, located in northern Florida, west of Tallahassee. The exposure was made onto a piece of 11×14 enlarging paper. The ‘camera’ is a plywood box I made with a black tinfoil pinhole and a screwed down plywood back. With a camera like that, I can only make one exposure before I have to go back to the darkroom to load/unload the paper negative. Since mine was in Tallahassee, that meant a round trip of about 110 miles to take this pinhole photo. Not really cost effective. Well, I had my 35mm SLR with me and also took a bunch of other photos.
