World Pinhole Day has become an underground holiday to photographers from far and wide. This year the Lomography Gallery Store NYC Gramercy celebrated by taking a stroll through Madison Square Park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon!
Who needs a lens when you have a sunny afternoon and some time to kill? We certainly don’t thanks to the Diana F+ and its amazing ability to turn into a pinhole camera! The group learned all about the history of lensless photography and how a tiny hole can produce an amazing image. Then, in celebration of World Pinhole Day, the class set out to turn the theory into reality. The city is bursting with color this time of year which makes for the perfect pinhole shots! Just check out the amazing results!

In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
