    Iīm not sure if this is the right place for this image.
    I sealed the window with black plastic, cut a hole the size of a dime on a piece of aluminium for the 'pinhole'.
    Itīs like magic! Attached files

    oops!
    The actual photo was taken with a lens camera (a Canon DSLR), 30 seconds exposure.

    Well................the original optic was a pinhole, albeit a very large one.

    Like a scanner the capture medium, a digital camera, used a lens and the final out put is on a computer monitor. The digital file can be used to create a print so, to me, it qualifies as a pinhole image.........but I am pretty liberal in my interpretations.......sometimes.

    Regardless, it is a really ingenious use of the mediumand I applaude your efforts!!!!

    Such fun! I would like to try this if I had a good room for it. I may try our small toolshed when the weather cools down a bit. Thanks for the inspiration. It must really be magical!
    The upside-down image is strange at first but after looking at some of Abelardo Morell's I realized that the interaction of the objects in the room with the inverted image was an integral part of the effect. Amazing.

    I think you have just done what most of us are thinking of doing.. Seeing it like this, I am sure, will have more than just a few of us trying it at home, work and about anywhere we are able!!!
