    I hope this is alright; may do another one if I finish my photo projects in time. This is pinhole photography (for the curious).

    Changed my entry and I'm feeling this one more. Previous one is #39 in my Photo Thread.

    Finally took a picture tonight for the challenge, I don't know which one I like better but I'm thinking black and white because it looks more ghosty-ish? What do you guys think? Wish I could've prevented the truck in the way...but I still like it.
