Pinhole photography offers the availability to form the image to allow numerous interpretations. The perception offered by the image can be quite different from what the picture was actually about.

I’ve always thought about how interesting it would be to go back to medieval times and enter a pub, watching to comings and goings of the patronage, and this was an attempt to capture that feeling – the feeling of a little magic, and a little danger.

Of course, this is actually a zone plate image I took while eating lunch at a local establishment, but playing with the highlights and shadows allows me to play make believe.

  1. What a great image – I agree, I do love using pinhole cameras to get a different view of things.
