What the Camera Obscura image looks like

Newer Older

There's a giant camera obscura at the cliff house, near ocean beach. It was made in 1946 and still works great! There's a prism/lens on the roof that rotates and projects an image down into a darkened room (onto a curved surface) so that you can see the outside projected inside. It's really neat.

    Yeah! It totally looked closed, but we rang the bell anyway and after some bustling inside, someone showed up a minute later and let us in!
