Camera Obscura in Stockport
This photograph was taken inside a camera obscura that was in Stockport Market last weekend. The image reflected in a mirror at the top of a darkened chamber is projected on to a table which can be raised and lowered to focus the image.
The camera obscura was there as part of the 750th anniversary celebrations for the Market charter granted to Stockport in 1260.
Here are the musicians captured by the camera obscura. Stockport Market Hall and some of the stalls are reflected in the shop window behind them.
