On Sunday, April 26, the Arizona Railway Museum open the gates for pinhole photographers to make images for worldwide pinhole day. About 10 photographers took advantage of the cool weather and access to many of the train cars on exhibit at the museum.
Images were captured on a variety of media, from 35mm to 4×5 to 5×7 film, digital, and paper negatives. Another great Arizona day to make unique pinhole images. Be sure to visit the Worldwide Pinhole Photography website and the Art Intersection Gallery for more information and to visit their galleries of images.
