World Pinhole Camera day is coming

By: billhopp, 3:08 AM GMT on February 23, 2013

Of late I have been busy creating a crude, but hopefully useful, pinhole camera. Last year I used an old Quaker Oats container and had some results that were mediocre, but they were results none the less.

This year I started earlier and have created one using old boxes and some felt. I've got some positive paper on order and hope to have some tests come the beginning of March.

World Pinhole day is April 28 so start working on yours and get in o...

Eagles nesting

By: billhopp, 6:51 AM GMT on April 23, 2012

Once again there are eagles nesting in a tree near Russel Road Park in Kent Wa. This pair has been here for about 3 years now and it is time for the eggs to have hatched, although the eaglets are still too small to see.They fly out to nearby ponds in an attempt to catch fish but I have not seen them bring anything back yet.

Eagles in the area

By: billhopp, 2:44 AM GMT on May 29, 2011

There are several places in and around the south Puget Sound that have nesting pairs of eagles. I am fortunate to live close to one of them but have the ability to go and see several.Last year I was also fortunate to be able to retire, an early retirement, so when the weather is not rainy I try to take photos and capture their activities. Of course being in northwest Washington that is not as easy as it sounds.The pictures last week were of a pair near the Green Riv...
