Illustration for article titled Solar Path Recorded By Pinhole Camera Over Six Months

Between the months of June and December last year, "Mr. Mallon" was filming the sun's activities on a single film cell, which lay forgotten in his back garden. This is the beautiful result.


It's a pretty example of what you can do with pinhole photography, where you simply place a roll of film in a handmade camera (very easy to do, Mr. Mallon followed these instructions here), and leave it outside, ready to record the path of the sun in the sky.

The film was scanned, and then made negative to illustrate the solar path clearly. Doesn't it look like vapor trails from a UFO, or some sort of warp field? [Help My Physics]
