Readers' photos on the theme of "pinhole".
Patrick T O'Reilly
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. To mark World Pinhole Photography Day this week it is "pinhole" and we begin with this picture, by Patrick T O'Reilly, of Machu Picchu in Peru.
Ann Bowen photographed some snowdrops using a camera made from a biscuit tin.
A cocoa tub converted into a pinhole camera was used by Steve White to take this picture.
Janet Clark: "I still love using proper film. This is an accidental self-portrait in early spring using a Zero 2000 pinhole camera, Kodak TMax 400 film, eight second exposure."
David Southgate: "The sun shining on my house reflected via a knot hole in the shed wall on to the top of a deep freeze."
Daniel Ramsay: "Because these take 30 seconds to take it captured the swan moving its head in and out of the water."
John Rigg: "This is a six-month exposure using a pinhole camera made from an empty soup tin and photographic paper, not film. The resulting image is then scanned and reversed. The trails mark the path of the sun across the sky as the seasons change. Days with broken cloud show as a dotted line."

Gregory Reuben Levitt: "Auschwitz on a cold snowy day in February using a 35mm pinhole camera. No filters. No photo apps. No Instagram. No fake synthetic nostalgia."
