Point of Rocks Waiting Area

I thought that I would post one more image taken from my 35mm pinhole camera. Again, this is the Point of Rocks train station, and this part is the waiting area. I hadn’t thought of it at the time but the image looks much as if this is a toy on a child’s train set-up.

Another reason I wanted to post this was because so often I hear the comment that when using a pinhole camera one does not know what their results will be, and best practice is to simply hope that the composition includes the elements one wishes. I am not certain where this advice started but it definitely is not the case. It was my intention to include the small buildings in the frame and position the outer ends of the structures on either side equidistant from the side. It is simply a matter of marking sight lines on the camera to make this work.

One thing that I did notice is that the bubble level on the camera is not exactly positioned, so that is something I will need to adjust. Once done, this camera will be ready to travel with me later in the year to Ireland.

  1. I really like the sense of balance in this composition! And I admire your skill in creating precision without a viewfinder.
