“OK, Everyone in The OC smile on three!”

Down in Irvine the Legacy Project is attempting to create the world’s largest pinhole camera in the old hangers at the former El Toro Marine Air Base. Since he won’t be taking pictures of the new terminal buldings (see, no airport) and the “Great Park” is still under construction, why not aim big: A picture of all of El Toro.

The picture is 31×111 and was soaked in 20 gallons of light emulson making the negative. It will be exposed for 10 days and then soaked in 200 gallons of black-and-white and 600 gallons of fixer.

This thing is way bigger then the black and white photos that I took in High School Photography.
