Damn Jim, you sure can deflate a baloon, just when I was beginning to warm
up to the idea of pin holes.
On a more serious -but not necessarily reverent - note, I fail to see why
people who buy the highest quality (and expensive) cameras and lenses in the
world are driven to produce the most mediocre photographs.
I am an enthusiastic experimenter but I will pass on Daguerrotype,
smear-on-the-emulsion-in-the-field glass plates, and aah... pinholes.
