Ondu 6×6 Pocket Pinhole, 10s, f167 – Kodak Ektar rated at ISO 50

An image from the first roll of colour film through my ONDU 6×6 Pocket pinhole camera.

I still feel I’m struggling with the camera to subject distance but I don’t think it really matters in this pic too much…

Yet another image from the fantastic Ondu 6×6 Pocket Pinhole camera and one of a number I shot on Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day 2021.

Crich Tramway Village occupies a former limestone quarry at Crich in Derbyshire and is home to more than 60 preserved tramcars.

Visible above is former Blackpool Corporation Tramways single-deck ‘toast-rack’ tramcar No.236 which became a permanent member of the fleet at Crich in 2012 and has since covered over 10,000 miles there!

The seven-storey Belper East Mill dates from 1912 and as a child (not quite as far back as 1912!) I got to explore most of it thanks to my Dad being assistant general manager there.

The Horseshoe Weir (built c.1797) was built to enable the River Derwent to power the older West Mill and replaced a much simpler structure located slightly further upstream.
