      What a great collection. We do a pin-hole camera project in my physical science class (light unit) where the kids build their own camera, load the paper and develop the negative themselves. this will be a great intro piece to show them as we start the project.

    2. Thanks for posting this. I really like seeing the images from the cameras as well as the cameras themselves.
