This is a shot I took at the Hiller Aviation Museum back in January.  Our two young boys love this place, I think we visit there at least twice a year if not more often.

Since I had our boys with me I was just taking some quick hand-held shots, mostly wide open due to the relatively low indoor lighting.  Sometimes I was uncertain what to focus on, but in this shot I think the "remove before flight" tag worked.

I just finished listening to Film Photography Podcast episode 56, released April 1st.  This is my favorite film photography related podcast, and while the discussion can wander at times there are usually a couple gem segments in each show.

This time I thoroughly enjoyed Hunter White's interview with Brian Wallis from the International Center of Photography in New York City.  They discussed the Weegee – Murder is my Business exhibit currently showing at the museum.

Weegee was one of the first famous photojournalists, you have probably seen some of his iconic photos.  He was a fascinating character who leveraged his connections with both the police and the gangs to be on the spot when the action was happening.

Dan Domme gave a brief introduction to pinhole photography and also reminded us that World Pinhole Photography Day is coming up soon on Sunday April 29th.  The whole idea is to get out and take pinhole photographs that day and then share the results.

I lost my Nikon F-mount pinhole cap some time ago, but we have a few other pinhole cameras around the house.  I will have to dust off one of them for this event!
