At least they do come in cardboard dozens, unlike those pretentious D3x.

This must be the first aspherical pinhole camera! Is it a variation on the old "watch the birdie" line? : )

Was this the for runner of the Eggsakta camera & does it come with ham & hash browns.
The Exacta back when was the ugliest camera on my list of cameras never to buy -- now selling for over $450 on E Bay.
Would an Ostrich egg be considered a large format egg o flex.

There's also the pinole, made from a pine-nut shell. I have a photo of it somewhere, from the Rome pinhole show last April.

eggcellent - eggspect eggstaordinary eggs!

I understand that there will be a big Eggleston retrospective later this year. Lots of lovely old albumen prints to be shown.


(OK, let's get them all out, once and for all.)

What sort of albumen do you need to store the photos? ;-)

I'm ova-whelmed by the eggcellent quality of the work, but the project seems a little embryonic. I hope the artist will chorion with the project and produce enough images to fill an albumen.

Wouldn't work for me, being vegan. But how about a red pepper, with orthochromatic film?

I assume he stores his final photos in separate baskets.

That is incredibly impressive.

That's eggsactly what I was thinking, but I was too chicken to say it.

So is this an albumen print?

The article wasn't clear on one point: when you add the processing chemicals, are you meant to agitate the egg or whisk it?

;-)

@ Mike: "What have I started? [g]"

What else do you eggspect from the load of free range yolkers we all are but flocks of fowl puns, Mike? : )

What a fabulous idea! I like it. I made my pinhole camera out of a chocolate egg this year. Here's a picture of it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/graeme_pow/5632599782/in/set-72157626402333371 And the first (and only) photo from it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/graeme_pow/5632016253/in/photostream/
