I find pinhole cameras pretty fascinating and for some reason friday night, I got it in my head to Google it and found myself with a ton of information. Some guy has even built a pinhole camera from Lego.
This got me thinking that I didn't want to build a pinhole camera from a Quaker Oat package or a cardboard box. I wanted to make something that I could load 35 mm film into and have it advance like in a normal camera.
We went to the local thrift store and I bought a point and shoot for $2.82. When I got home, out came the Dremel. First I drilled four small holes in the corner of where the lens and shutter release were from the inside to the outside. This let me know on the outside of the camera where to cut. Next I took a cutoff wheel and cut out the lens and the shutter release from the outside.
Despite we have been told by the weather man that Wednesday night could bring another blanket of snow there are more encouraging signs of spring.
My lilacs are starting to bud. The forsythia is flowering in the back yard, our lawn is greening up.
This past weekend I cleaned up the backyard--eight bags of garbage. Lots of fallen branches, leaves, garbage that had blown into our backyard and a ton of things that the dogs brought into the backyard.
I also tuned up my bike and my daughter's bike.
Then today, another sure sign and one that I love to see every year.
Signs of spring have started popping up all around my home. After one of the hardest winters I've experienced since living in the US, there are indications that it is ending.
Now, generally March is the heaviest snow month here. Temps have his the mid-20s C and mid 70s F.
I noticed these little guys poking out of the ground--mini daffs.
