Outside in
Not doing this again in a hurry. I spent yesterday afternoon with three rolls of tape and some 90 metres of aluminium foil, excluding the cold light of day from my room. Not in fit of overgrown emo-ness (emosity?), but to try this:

Camera obscura, Wellington, New Zealand.

Unfortunately, the weather turned to crap, high winds causing the foil to rattle and whistle all night, and today has been decidedly low contrast. I would have liked to try a smaller hole and or a shorter exposure, but there's no way I'm leaving the foil up 'till the sun decides to come out.

Ah! You made a camera obscura! So that's the ceiling of your room at the bottom and your bedspread at the top, right? Nicely done.

You got it! The idea is not original though - I saw this guy's version in photographers and just had to give it a go.

Why not - instructions are here
.

I used foil instead of black plastic, but plastic would have been quieter.
