As perhaps you can tell from the blurry quality of this image, this was made with a pinhole lens. Some pinhole lenses make sharper images, but the one I’ve been using tends to make for quite a bit of blur.

Making interesting images with a lens that reliably blurs what it sees has become a welcome constraint. I have found I must look at the world a particular way if I want to frame a compelling scene.
