  1. A ‘found’ pinhole…or set up? From an ants-eye viewpoint? Pretty sharp.

    • Hi James – the first image in the Blogpost shows the first image we saw in the box. One of the hand-grip holes in the box were the aperture that admitted the light.
      As the box was in the dark space of the storage shed the bright light outside formed a quite unsharp elongated image inside the box.
      As shown we rearranged some other boxes to remove as much stray light as possible and two gloves were taped over the hand-holes – though square-ish the resulting image enabled the silhouette figure to be seen.
      The image may have been contrast enhanced a little for aesthetic effect.
      So yes to ‘found’ but after discovery ‘enhanced’ to yield the images and video presented in the post.
      Cheers Doug+Vickypost.
