Atelier Ying at the McNally Bookshop, Prince St., Nyc.
It's back to camera design world, after a few sessions of b&w shooting.
My watercolor sketch for a digital camera obscura, with the mobile phone
camera filter "lens" that I got in a gachapon in hong kong (for 10 HK dollars). You've all seen this idea before in a chamomile tea box setup, but this looks more apropo, and is more durable.
Matching red leather strap and maybe some postage stamp designs I am seeing in my head...:)
The tilt-up viewing hood is not cosmetic, a digital camera is mounted inside on its back so that the user sees the screen, and a 60-degree Bauernfeind prism carry the image via the main lens in the front. There is a hidden bellows visible at the bottom of the camera.
the red clip on the right is my original index card star trek "communicator" notebook,
I will have to upload a photo of that sometime soon.
