    Apples and pinhole photography?

    The article at the attached link astounded me, and cheered me up enormously.
    Off the wall, 'whacky', use of old photographic techniques is still relevant! And I can still be surprised by the projects that people come up with.

    I'm also right there when it comes to keeping our 'heritage' apple varieties available.

    Another gimmicky approach to taking pictures. I have absolutely no idea why someone would want to turn an apple into a pinhole camera and take decidedly low quality pictures with it.

    Just to prove it can be done, I guess...

    Well it does make for a nice spy camera.

    Manfred- I was associated with Eric and Nancy Renner of Pinhole Resource in NM years ago and even wrote some articles on Zone Plates... there is a weird art-crafty aspect of some people in the Pinhole world. One fellow even made a pinhole camera out of his own mouth... I on the other hand was an oatmeal box kind of guy. Eric and Nancy have retired now and gave their extensive collection to UNM? - I'm sure the magazines are still out there... lotsa weirdness...
