I just had my own Serendipity moment. A Camera Obscura randomly occurred in my room today.
Yep, that’s a camera obscura. The most basic type of camera in the world (it was around even before photography was!)
… A camera obscura is basically just a dark room and a hole in a window opening.
The light rays from the outside world get squashed and travel through the tiny lens hole in your window, flip themselves around, and end up showing up again on a projected upside-down image.
It’s the most basic form of a lens, and works a lot like your very own eye!
The smaller you make the lens hole, the sharper and more in-focus your image gets.
If your lens hole is too large, light rays have too much room to move and make your image blurry and out-of-focus.
I hope more moments like this happen in my life.
