Anyone who has followed me for a while knows I have a thing for fire hydrants. Imagine my glee when I happened upon a whole truckload of them on the way to work the other day. Unfortunately all I had ready to shoot was my diminutive Nikon P-300 point & shoot. Well, I guess it really is a bit more than a point & shoot. It does have some serious manual override capabilities but all that's a bit difficult to manage while driving on an Interstate highway through morning traffic so I am grateful for the "Auto" setting.
My apologies for the quality of the image but driving with one hand and shooting pictures through a dirty windshield with the other does not contribute to image quality so it is what it is. I am grateful for it since it will serve as a reminder of a morning thrill for many years to come. Every time I see this photo I will smile - hope you will too.

Anyway, Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day has come and gone with no mention from me so I am here to correct that now - you didn't think I would ignore or miss that very special day did you?
The image above is the one I uploaded to the WPPD gallery this year. You can check it out here...
...and be sure to linger a while and view some of the other 2000 or so images uploaded so far. There are only a couple days left for folks to get their images up so there is likely to be a "mad rush" between now and May 31st for all the last minute entries so be sure to go back frequently until then to see all of them.
