    In readiness for the WWP day I threw these parts together, made an internal spring loaded shutter and hey presto a 4x5 pinhole camera. Sinar back and IKEA plant pot make up the main parts.

    You do get around. Nice use of the format in all cases. Letting my Celtic genes run riot with my biases, I rather preferred the Edinburgh shot, but they are all good.
