Locals say the ancient rocks at Proleek Dolmen near Dundalk, Ireland, mark the grave of a Scottish giant.

During the past four years, I have traveled in Europe, Mexico and the United States,
taking pictures with my pinhole camera, which is essentially a box with a tiny pinhole to let in light.
This rather simple system has replaced the relatively compact trappings of my usual travel-photography work -
cameras, lenses, light meters and a lightweight tripod.
Now my suitcase weighs in at about 100 pounds, the same as I do. It
contains (aside from the camera): a sturdy tripod, Polaroid large-format film, baggies for water, chemicals for
processing, two buckets for washing negatives, a clothesline and some clothespins.
This travel photography is far less
convenient. Yet, like Alice in Wonderland, I find that I have tumbled through the pinhole into an unexpected kind of travel adventure.
