Camera Obscura

This is the first known illustration of the camera obscura, published
in a work by the Dutch
scientist Rainer Gemma Frisius; De radio
astronomico et geometrico liber in the year of 1545.

A fine collection of links about camera obscura
Here is a site about pinhole cameras (fascinating stuff), recommended by Mats.

This is the real deal -- the back of my camera was not closed tightly and I was wandering around in full sun. I think of this photograph as having something to do with motion & great speed. Maybe John Prine's "Speed of the Sound of Lonliness?"

His graphic style and feeling for composition, ability to find beauty in all kind of places even the industry areas are some of the reasons why his work fascinates me. You may see more of his work here
