Finally. I finally got a decent pinhole shot of this gate! I pass this place in downtown Decatur just about every day and have been trying for quite some time to make a pinhole photo of it. It’s a really cool old building and the gate has the word “Beautiful” across it. It is beautiful… and the idea for it comes from a fabled gate in Jerusalem; the Gate Called Beautiful. Here’s a bit more info about it.
I have shot here several times before but didn’t get good results. There is often a food trailer parked blocking access, too, which makes it even more difficult. I’m not giving up yet, I will continue shooting here until I get what I’m after.
