These are a few months old but finally got them scanned in...

My first atempt, they were both about 30 sec exposures in the bright sun, with snow reflection...

Wow. Mind sharing how you took these? I imagine a pin hole was used, but I am definitely curious to the process!

Thanks!

I like the second photo a lot. i like that, other than it being winter, it's difficult to give a time and a place. The winter mixed with the texture of the wall is interesting to me.
I only have two opinions, or preferences: that would be that the person in the photo would be looking at the wall (this would look odd which would add to the picture's weird feel) OR that there were some point of focus (tiny) in the area with snow. The snow attracts the eye but there isn't anything there to keep that attention.
That said, i really like the photo and would like to see more like it. :)

this is basically what the camera looked like, the sutter is a piece of tap that you move and then cover it back up with. the apeture is litterally a pin hole in a peice of metal taped to the can. then you take a 8x10 rc photo paper curl it into the can and take a picture. then i developed the paper and then i scanned it in and added some contrast and curves and wallla.....:)

as for the second one, i just told the guy to stand next to the wall and look left, and he did...he wasnt really looking at anythign but thats what i was going for, i wanted the viewer to have some mystery..

Cool, I've thought about trying this. I like your results.
Could you cheat and make a digital pinhole camera with a spare body cap?

I've seen the modified caps for sale on ebay but do not know how well they work.
