Camera Obscura

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been going thru my photo files and cleaning things up….I stumbled upon a photo I snapped last summer when I was in NY with the kids.  Sometimes I’ll just grab a photo to remind me of something…kinda like taking a quick note.  Anyway, we had driven out to Greenport, I had to get my fill of steamers and always a great place just to wander about.  Josh and I came upon this odd looking building, thankfully it had a sign explaining what it was…


So basically it’s a great big pin hole camera!  unfortunately it was very overcast that day so we couldn’t enter, it only works in bright sunny conditions.  I googled it, oooops should I have binged it???  Oh well, it looked it up on the web :), and amazed to discover there are only 8 in the United States.  Five in the northeast and three in the west.  Here’s the link in case you want to check out the story of the one in Greenport….    And here’s the link for US locations….

  1. Now you are talking my neck of the woods Judy. I hope while you were in Greenport you visited Claudios Restaurant for some New England Clam Chowder – he best ever. The Camera Obscura is pretty cool it’s like live view on a DSLR, LOL.


  2. Claudios is good but I prefer the shack on the pier…can’t remember the name…crazy Jerry’s …Joes, something like that! Sitting by the boats pulling up is more my cup of tea 🙂 I miss the water a lot, only lakes here in Texas, just not the same
