Well, I had a great group here to Baba Yaga's house for a little Pinhole worshop yesterday. The weather was awesome and the group was interested and enthusiastic. I'm still learning my way through the experience of leading a class, directing activity and doing my best at (not always successful) trouble shooting. Perhaps I need to do such things more often. It was fun for me, however, and I love being a pinhole evangelist!! It's such an awesome photographic technique and it never fails to inspire and delight me. I'm hoping that some of my participants get the bug too!

I think I was calling to Avery at this point...who, as it so happened, was for the most part VERY well behaved in the situation.
