Edinburgh’s Camera Obscura – In Photos

Besides haunted tales and killer concerts, Edinburgh has so much to offer.  Our visit was much too short to take it all in, but one of our favorite experiences was at the Camera Obscura exhibit.

From their website“Inside this mysterious Victorian rooftop chamber, you see live moving images of Edinburgh projected onto a viewing table through a giant periscope. Pick people up on your hands, squash them to a pulp and even make the traffic climb over paper bridges. “

Of course, Edinburgh being Edinburgh, you had to know there would be a spooky side to it.

Apart from the experience of viewing the cityscape from the actual camera obscura, all five floors contain fun displays that challenge visitor’s perspectives.

Inside the maze of mirrors.  Which is the real Pete?


I’m not always this mean.  I promise.


Trying to figure out what our kids would look like.


Okay, maybe I am mean.  But hey, I’ve got no body.


Pete succumbed to his injuries.


There were also a lot of cool visual art and light displays.
