Single frame… World Wide Pinhole Photography Day

As it’s World Wide Pinhole Photography Day I thought I’d dig out one of the few attempts I’ve made at a pinhole image.

‘Scallop’ is a sculpture on Aldeburgh beach in Suffolk, dedicated to English composer, conductor and pianist Benjamin Britten. Created by Suffolk-based artist Maggi Hambling, the stainless steel piece is made up of two interlocking scallop shells, each broken, the upright shell being pierced with the words: “I hear those voices that will not be drowned”, which are taken from Britten’s opera Peter Grimes.

The image was made during a holiday to the Suffolk coast back in July 2011. Sadly the Wanderlust Pinwide lens doesn’t seem to be available at the moment and if memory serves it was only ever available for micro 4/3 cameras (which I no longer shoot) but I am rather tempted by one of the Skink Pinhole Pancake lenses for my Fujifilm X-T1…
