Today is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. I love the idea that people all over the world are out taking pinhole photos today, posting them in a community of like-minded people. There are no language barriers in photography. Having expensive equipment doesn't make you a better photographer in a world where discarded cookie tins and matchboxes are commonly used to make cameras.

The internet brings us the world, for better or worse. In this case, it's for the better. No discussions about politics, no arguments about global warming, no movie star gossip. Today it's all about admiring each other's ingenuity and quirkiness.
