Camera Day

Camera Day is best celebrated with pictures. Pictures are invaluable memories of our lives and of the world. They tell stories. Our memories and stories are captured by a camera. With digital technology, using a camera has never been easier. Cameras are now built into cell phones, so you always have a camera with you, ready to record the moments of your life.

To many people, a camera is a vital tool to record important events in the family and in the world. It captures the momentforever. It creates the memories that we share and look back upon. From the birth of a baby, to high school graduations, people take pictures at a fast click. Year after year, the camera records family vacations, holidays and Christmas. The camera takes pictures of good times, and occasionally bad time.

You can make a camera that costs nothing. Its a great project for school, as a scout project, or just for fun. It's the 'Pinhole Camera'.

A shoebox is infamous for storing pictures. It can also be converted into a camera. Take a shoebox and poke a pinhole in the middle of one end. Cover the pinhole with a piece of black tape. In a completely dark room, place a large piece of unexposed film on the inside of the end opposite the pinhole. Re-close the cover of the shoebox. Now, take a picture in a snap!
