Very interesting and with a home made pinhole no less.
I can't help wandering how long it would take to produce a similar shot with PP.

I didn't know film would still be "exposing" 6 months later!
That's VERY cool info!

Actually, I'm not really sure this has any value.

It wasn't film, it was a sheet of photographic paper.

Six months? I'm surprised that police didn't discover it and send in a bomb detonating robot to blow it up.

Do you mean your post has little value? Or are you querying the value of the resulting image? Or the process involved?

It would seem to me to be the first of these reasons as the other two would seem to question the value of photography wouldn't you think?

This makes me curious about pin-hole cameras. Fascinating technique and beatiful photograph.

every camera is a pinhole camera... except that in your camera you get to focus the light light prior, and control how big the hole is

punch a hole in your body cap with a needle>attach body cap>take photo.

of course you cannot do long exposures to the same extent as film. much less the 6 months for photographic paper but it should work with digital just as well.

what if you put a serious ND filter in front of your pin-holed body cap and set to the lowest iso?

altho power supply i think is the main issue...

I imagine that would be ok, but I was more referring to the sensor. I imagine you could hook the camera up to some external source.
