Butter Tub Pinhole Camera

"I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost - that is important."
-Jacques-Henri Lartigue

This is the Butter Tub Camera. I got the tub from the cafeteria. Very simple really, hole in the lid made with a hammer and a nail, then widened with a pair of scissors, inside painted black, including lid, and a bit of tape over hole to prevent light going in.
The photo I took with this camera would of been successful If I had a shorter exposure time, as the hole is quit big. Its one I would really like to try again.

First photo taken
A 6 second exposure time.
