From the archives: Zero Image in Winter

It seems like every time I post something from my Zero Image pinhole camera, I say something like, "I don't use my Zero Image pinhole camera near often enough."  And every time I am correct. As of this writing, I have a roll of Ektar sitting in it with a single frame left to shoot, and it's been like that for a few months now. I really need to get it finished and processed.

Fuji Acros 100 in AGFA Rodinal. Red #25 filter,
This image is from one of my very first rolls taken with the Zero Image, back when I first obtained it in about 2016. I was still experimenting with compositions and getting a feel for the perspective that could be had with this particular pinhole camera. Looking back on it, I really appreciated how the sun rays moved over the circular pinhole aperture, as opposed to how it normally does on a normal lens aperture with straight edges.This image has a very stark, lonely feel to it, one that I really didn't experience when I was actually exposing the film. In fact, this frame was really just an after thought. I had been shooting a barn when I turned around 180 degrees and saw this scene.
