Hidden away at Lands End … at the Cliff House in San Francisco … is this remnant from historical SF. It’s the Camera Obscura (from Latin, meaning “dark room”).
A simple display, with the entry fee of just a couple of dollars, it is not to be missed.
In the age of electronic wonders, fast-moving information filled flashes of eye-candy … this is perhaps one of the finest antidotes.
A short history of this “invention” is here at the Giant Camera site.
Pure fun. Simple wonder. Guaranteed smiles. No crowds.
