Edinburgh's camera obscura is quite bulky ... http://www.camera-obscura.co.uk/camera_obscura/camera_obscura.asp

[but more like a Victorian version of HDTV than still photography].

A Wind Powered Generator.



A Wind Powered Generator Being Rather Unwindyfied !



I just took the above piccy a few minutes ago and I had a chat with the bloke who was attending to it.
We had a nice chat....he says he gets little wind but a lot of turbulance..(I wanted to make a baked bean joke at this juncture but chose not to ).........does this mean he will never really realise it's full potential ?

What A Load Of Rubbish !
Some Rubbish Bins Juts A Few Minutes Ago

Are you sure they weren't pin-hole cameras ...
Quote
Making and using a wheely bin camera.

1, Find and clean a wheely bin. (I found mine next door!)
2, Cut a hole in the side and insert an aluminium pinhole of around 2mm.
3, Buy a 6m x 142cm roll of photographic paper. (A snip at £65-00!).
4, Trim down a 142cm x 100cm sheet and tape it around the inside of the bin.
5, Tape down the lid and place a light-tight ‘shutter’ over the pinhole.
6, Cart it off to the seaside or top of Ben Nevis. (bus drivers love them!)
7, Expose the paper for 8 minutes in sunlight.
8, Wheel it back to the darkroom / bath.
9, Take out the paper and tape it above the bath. Sponge on Dev, Stop and Fix.
10, Wash down the final print with a shower attachment.

As made by this pin-hole camera obsessive ....

[No it's done with not Photoshop: the pin-hole camera is a 110 film cartridge in his mouth].

I am strangely impressed with the above! I had no idea pinhole cameras could be used in that way!

Nice flooring. Looks like you pinched it from an old school gym...Did you?

It is called marbue or some such. The floor that is. No it is not a school gym but it is easy to wipe down!

Does the "H" Stand for Hertfordshire,
Maybe the 100 is what block.. perhaps the 1.7 is the mileage marker or something...?

The H is for Hydrant, (not funny but true).
The sign tells the fire brigade where they can find the water supply.

Making that poor puss read coberst's post is wicked. I shall report you to the RSPCA. (Royal Society for the Protection of Coberst against Animals).

That's a truly brilliant picture. I love the eerie glow and also the expression on the cat's face.

I hope you'll post more pictures.

Instead of making hundreds of exposures over a period of months,
 how about one exposure three months long ...
