Camera obscura

Camera obscura is the projection of light against a surface. It is quite interesting to me because it is a different form of pin hole photography. The reason the image is inverted is because the light hitting the bottom of the hole goes up diagonally and the light hitting the top of the hole goes down diagonally as well as the light from the sides going the opposite way.
