Camera Obscura

This is a photograph of an actual camera obscura that I saw in the darkened passageway in our farmhouse as a five-year-old child. Projected through the dining room keyhole the upside down image clearly shows the window (complete with half-net curtain) with barn and orchard beyond. That was 1962, although I was unable to photograph it until much later: the photograph above was taken in the early 70s. This camera obscura was the inspiration that led to my life ‘With Photography™’.
