Another image from the first roll from my Zero Image 618D 6x18cm pinhole (lensless) film camera. For this roll I set the framing to 6x12cm to mitigate the severe vignetting that the full 6x18cm framing would give. The camera, while incredibly beautiful in appearance, has a set of severe limitations in its design and seems to have been created to more easily accomodate it's unique ability to shoot a full 72cm wide continuous scrolling negative rather than individual 6x4,5/6x6/6x7/6x9/6x12 or 6x18cm frames. I will need to experiment a bit more with a broad set of subjects before figuring out where it fits in with my other pinhole cameras.
Lockridge Furnace, located on Alburtis, Lehigh County Pennsylvania. The furnace opened in 1868 during the peak of the anthracite iron industry and operated until shortly after World War One. Since 1970, the 59 acre site has operated as a community park while the original blast furnace building # 7 now houses the Lock Ridge Furnace Museum which is open on a limited basis during the Spring through Fall months.
