Well I’ll Be…

Shocked. The giant photo that I mentioned in my post “Everybody smile” actually worked. AP is reporting that the photograph will probably set the record for the world’s largest photograph. The non-profit Legacy Group showed off their creation in an old hanger at former MCAS El Toro and shows the old control towers, manhole covers, and even a portable toilet.

Using the old pinhole camera technique, the group was able to take a picture using a gumball size hole in the hanger wall on a large sheet of photo paper. The exposure was set at 35 minutes and then placed in a 1-foot deep tray of solution. I used to do this in High School and it was always cool to see the pictures that you took develop into something right before your eyes.

Hopefully the picture can find a home in Orange County.
